Welcome from the Principal

Brian Smith 2015-16 croppedWelcome to the Washington New Church School (WNCS)!

Nestled in a beautiful, wooded section of Mitchellville, at the western edge of Bowie, our little school offers unique advantages for students in all grades from junior kindergarten to grade 10.

At WNCS we combine robust academic and behavior standards with a personalized and engaging style of teaching. Our teachers love what they do! Together, our teachers and school families work to create a powerful learning culture where children feel safe and secure but also challenged to stretch and grow.

The reason we began in 1970 and the reason that continues to inspire and motivate our teachers is the vision of providing students with an education that is both spiritual and natural. The natural level of our education is important. We’re proud of preparing our alumni for successful careers in many different professions. But even more important is our vision of guiding our students to be spiritually successful. That is, to have the tools and convictions to live a life committed to loving the neighbor and serving the Lord.

I know I speak for the whole community – teachers and families – when I express our warm welcome to you and your family!
