From the Civil War to the Civil Rights Movement, Washington is the backdrop to the most dramatic chapters of America’s story, and the beating heart of its modern politics. Watch senators at the Capitol Building, sit at the feet of Abraham Lincoln, and walk the corridors of the White House. But it isn’t all scandals, squabbles and filibusters: dance the night away in Georgetown, relax in the grounds of the National Arboretum, or head to the U Street area for live music.
Our Washington English school is just ten minutes’ walk from the imposing spire of the Washington Monument and its tranquil Reflecting Pool, and just six blocks from the White House
Housed in a state-of-the-art building in downtown D.C., with smartboards in all 16 classrooms
Offers easy access to public transport, including the city’s bike share scheme Work or relax in the comfortable on-site break rooms and computer lab
