WMS School Tour

This is a comprehensive tour of our two sites: Duane Street and Hudson Street. During the school tour, parents get a 360° degree view of our school. Our hope is that you get a sense of the campuses, see inside our classrooms, studio spaces, libraries, gyms and more.

Tours last for one hour and are for parents only.

Classroom Observation & Group Discussion

Following the School Tour, we invite prospective parents to return on a separate day to observe inside a live classroom, and to participate in a small group discussion with 2-3 other families. It is an open conversation about your classroom observations and also an opportunity to ask in-depth questions about the school. All parents should plan to attend this second visit to the school.

Interviews last for one hour and are for parents only.

Financial Aid

We are a nonprofit organization and we value economic diversity in our community, Every year, we raise and award funds for our Tuition Assistance Program.

To assist our Financial Aid Committee, The Washington Market School subscribes to the TADS financial application system. TADS is an independent organization that provides need-based analysis to help private schools determine the financial need of their applicants.
