  • Students and parents rave about Capitol Hill Day School. It is the model for excellence in urban education, taking advantage of the wonderful educational opportunities in the greater Washington DC area. Each class has a field trip each week, relevant to what they are studying. Music, art, foreign languages, community service, sports, and superior academics. What more could you want? Oh yes, a nurturing atmosphere with caring adults and students. This is a phenomenal school.
