Why Woodridge International?
College success begins with a great foundation. That’s why Woodridge International Elementary and Middle develops inquisitive, knowledgeable, and caring students who are motivated to discover more about their community and world.
Woodridge Elementary pre-K3-4th grade students follow an International Baccalaureate program that uses observation, questioning, and creative scenarios to build the skills and character traits necessary for lifelong learning. With an emphasis on Spanish language study, students explore core subject areas such as reading and mathematics with an emphasis on expression and relating to others.
Woodridge Middle students in grades 6-8 develop a deeper understanding of core content with a focus on critical analysis and college exposure. All students follow a rigorous and culturally diverse curriculum in eight areas: English and language arts, foreign language (Spanish), mathematics, science, social studies, humanities, art, and technology. Advanced Placement skills are embedded in prerequisite courses to ensure readiness for Friendship’s college-preparatory high schools.
One of the few D.C. campuses with an in-house library, Woodridge incorporates classic and contemporary books, art, and music as part of the daily school experience. A Blue Ribbon Schools nominee, Woodridge’s exceptional student outcomes have earned special visits from 43rd U.S. President George W. Bush, First Lady Laura Bush, and former U.S. Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings.
