BWS Middle School Committee Begins Laying the Foundation
Principal Angela Garcia created the Middle School Program Committee to begin the process of planning for the next phase of development for the Bishop John T. Walker School for Boys – launching our Middle School in the fall of 2015. The committee consists of middle school teachers and administrators from Sidwell Friends School, Shady Hill School, St. Stephen’s and St. Agnes School, St. Andrew’s Episcopal School and St. Albans School. The committee met three times throughout the 2013-2014 school year and made tremendous progress toward laying the foundation for the school’s growth. Outcomes completed include a draft of the Bishop Walker School’s Educational Philosophy for Middle School as well as research, recommendations and pre-planning in the areas of curriculum development, advisory programs and athletics.
