What makes us special?
At Capitol Hill Day School, we believe that children learn best when they are actively engaged and concepts are presented in meaningful and creative ways. Our rich and unparalleled Field Education program (more than 300 field trips per year) connects the classroom to the real world and teaches students problem-solving and critical thinking skills. Small classes and a project approach to teaching create a love of learning that lasts a lifetime. Here, students are not simply memorizing facts and taking tests; knowledge is absorbed through hands on, experiential learning.
Through our collaborative and inquiry-based curriculum, students build on their natural curiosity and learn to make connections across disciplines and subject areas. At Capitol Hill Day School, students learn to respect the world around them and care for their community and for each other. Our graduates are confident, academically prepared, socially adept, and flourish at a wide range of high schools, where they continue to live out the School’s motto of “explore, engage, and connect.”
