Potomac is not only one of the wealthiest U.S. communities (according to CNN Money and just about every demographic measurement), it’s also one of the “top education American small towns,” according to Forbes. Besides being home to many of the nation’s best-known political families, Potomac is horse country. Between the million-dollar homes that line the river, you’ll find stables, riding schools, breeders, and more, most notably the Potomac Horse Center, a public facility that offers programs for riders at every level.
Winston Churchill High School was recently nominated as a Blue Ribbon School and recently rated one of the top 100 schools in the nation by U.S News & World Report. And for good reason: Winston Churchill High School reports a phenomenal 98 percent graduation rate, with almost 90 percent meeting university entrance standards for the state. This is absolutely a college prep school — more than 86 percent of students enroll in Advanced Placement classes, and nearly all of its graduates plan to continue on to college.
