Located in the Fort Totten neighborhood of Washington, DC, Washington Latin Public Charter School is a small-by-design diverse community where inspiration, warmth, and holistic education take center stage. The school serves 700 students in Grades 5-12 across the District.
Washington Latin is a liberal arts, college preparatory school with a classical mission. It has an emphasis on curriculum that explores the history of the ancients and develops understanding, knowledge, and humanity of its scholars. The school views education as a training of character, and character is the intersection of intellectual development and moral integrity. Students at Washington Latin are both encouraged and prepared to be thoughtful people who will contribute to the public good and continue lifelong quests toward a fuller humanity. Teachers and administrators are passionate about the mission and commit themselves to support the growth of well-rounded students who are exposed to broad academic and language skills.
The school operates by the motto that words matter, ideas matter, and people matter. Excellent teachers are a priority, and with ample support are given autonomy to create a culture of learning for their diverse student body. Uniquely, all adults in Washington Latin contribute to teaching and learning and instruct at least one class every year. As a teacher in this community, you will be met with high expectations, preparation to be the highest-quality teacher, and a capacity to grow and take on new leadership throughout your career.
