Maret is a vibrant K-12, co-educational, independent school in Washington, DC. We ignite our students’ potential and foster their academic, artistic, and athletic talents. We develop the mind, nurture curiosity, welcome challenge, embrace joy, and build community that is equitable and inclusive.
Families of kindergarten through twelfth graders were invited to participated in the Martin Luther King, Jr. Weekend of Service, where the Lower, Middle, and Upper Schools joined forces to serve throughout the community and to celebrate and reflect on the life of a civil rights leader who continues to inspire compassion, healing, and positive change.
Upper school students joined DC's oldest Martin Luther King, Jr. Day event, "We Feed Our People", at the Big Chair in Anacostia. Middle school students worked at our partner site, Edward C. Mazique Parent Child Center to help organized classrooms, while lower school students decorated and packed classroom care packages for Martha’s Table Early Childhood Program.
