Maret’s dynamic community and campus in the midst of Washington, DC, create a unique learning environment for students from kindergarten through twelfth grade. Expert teachers inspire students to think both creatively and analytically, seek out multiple perspectives, work hard, and make time for joy as they tackle our challenging curriculum or set out on a new artistic or athletic path. The School’s mission and core values guide all that we do and provide a strong foundation for lifelong learning, responsible citizenship, and achievement.
Our community strives for equity and inclusion in every aspect of school life. Maret School stands firmly behind the principle that the admission of students, the employment of faculty, the operation of programs, and the governance of the School be open to all who are qualified regardless of race, ethnicity, color, national origin, gender identity, sexual orientation, or creed. We believe that this principle is both firmly grounded in the spirit of American democracy and in keeping with the civil responsibilities of an independent school.
All adults on campus are role models for our students and are considered part of the faculty. Every Maret employee must abide by our code of conduct. All candidates must be fully vaccinated for COVID.
