WIS is clearly the best school in Washington DC. We have been at the school for nine years now, and our three kids are thriving. I use the word "best", because every school has more or less the same school hours, yet in those same hours, WIS accomplishes much more as it teaches in two languages, simultaneously, everyday. As a result, our kids are fluent in Spanish, a language we do not speak at home. They get a strong foundation in primary school, all while being taught math and other basic skills and knowledge. Our kids are in upper school now, and the math foundation they received in primary school is paying off, as they are in the highest level of math offered by the IB. Other than the academics, if you want your kids to be worldly, aware and respectful of other cultures, than WIS is the place for you. The school is so diverse in its student body and faculty, that just by being exposed to so many nationalities, one learns different ways of thinking, different ways of seeing, and respecting all. WIS is unique place in Washington DC, those of us who are part of it, feel very lucky.
