CHDS signs lease for Farren's Stable!
Dear Capitol Hill Day School Community,
For the past eight months, the Capitol Hill Day School Board and Administration have been hard at work thinking strategically about the School’s facility needs. As an outcome of this effort, we are very excited to announce the signing of a lease for space in the historic Farren’s Stable building at 218 D Street, SE. To learn more about the facility, we invite you to attend an open house at this new site from 5:00-7:00pm on February 7. This event is for adults only, but rest assured that, in due time, students will get to see this exciting new space!
There is a saying in education that “space is the third teacher.” In partnership with architects, the School has a unique opportunity to design a new setting explicitly tailored to enhance our program. Through this project, we are confident we can create an innovative learning environment that will continue to make our pedagogy and curriculum responsive and relevant to the world in which our students live and the future they will inherit.
