I love School Without Walls .... it is challenging, and so to those parents who want their child to do an outstanding job APPLY THEM AT SCHOOL WITHOUT WALLS, when they first start it might be a struggle to adjust but they'll get used to the work .

We went through the application process this year, and were very impressed. The process was very organized and easy to follow. Loved the tour and summer bridge program was very helpful. My daughter is looking forward to her first year ta SWW.

Work for the sake of work. It's not worth it. Wilson is just as good for self sufficient students.

With two daughters one a sophmore and the other a junior currently enrolled, I know there is no better choice, public or private for their education and development as young leaders. Dedicated leadership and opportunities galore for those that want to learn and achieve ... the sky is the limit! Now expanding to a full k-12 program every parent of a motivated learner needs to get their child there!

Four years of being a "Walls" parent has been outstanding! My daughter has transformed into the young lady I knew she would be. I love the location, I love the diversity, I love what they stand for, I love the challenge. What I've loved most for the past 4 years is the principal's motto. " If you need help with something, ask your teacher(s).....You have a right to demand your education". I think that should be every principal's motto. The students are definately prepared for the next level of college. I would highly recommend SWW to any student who is up for a challenge.

Have your kid apply to Walls-forget Private School. I sent my daughter to three of them before realizing that their main interest was in raising money and keeping affluent families in their communities even if their children were awful brats. Walls isn't perfect but the students seem to understand that they can't treat people badly and get away with it and there are only a smattering of students with snobby attitudes. In addition, their expectations of students are higher and the students, by and large, live up to them without the private school spoonfeeding.

This school is an excellent school with a diverse student body. The curriculm is challenging and definitely college preparatory. This is an excellent school if your child wants an excellent education and does want to attend college. The school also is very communicative and does use a lot of technology for students to submit some of their work, parents to see grades and weekly progress, this school also offers a wonderful partnership with GWU. This school is not for slackers but for students that is committed to getting a good education.

One of DC's best public high school, attracting top middle school students. Unfortunately, the administration and teachers at the school do not seem to appreciate the intellectual calibre of the student body and so the instructions and extra-carricular activities available are mediocre at best.
