    Overview

    The Field School is a 6-12 grade independent school located in Northwest Washington, D.C. 

     

    Field's first mission is to teach skills: critical thinking, inquiry, writing and problem solving. We do not follow tracks similar to other schools to separate students based on levels of academic achievement or efficiency. Students are exposed each day to varying types of teaching, modeling that there is more than one way to think, to learn, to process information, and to express an idea.

    Our small classes allow teachers to get to know their students well beyond their first and last names. Our teachers, who are extraordinarily bright and passionate individuals, are genuinely committed to understanding and teaching adolescents in a way that takes all of their strengths and weaknesses into account. We understand that different children and different brains do learn differently, and strive to vary our teaching and assessment styles accordingly.
