About Us

EDLIN'S PURPOSE

At Edlin we address the needs of the whole child by creating a happy and nurturing environment that inspires and challenges all students to achieve their maximum potential both academically and personally. Edlin teaches and supports universal values of friendliness, cooperation, honesty and social responsibility. We encourage students and their families to practice these values in the outside world to support the community minded nature of education.

PHILOSOPHY

The program is intellectually demanding and prepares students for increasingly competitive and rigourous further education, while encouraging student value and self-esteem. The school is not parochial but does teach and support universal values of friendliness, cooperation, and social responsibility. Edlin encourages students and their families to practice such values in the outside world to support the community minded nature of education.

Mission

Edlin is an academically gifted private K4 through 8th school established in 1989. The school emphasizes a classic curriculum in combination with STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics), and uses proven methods to create the best learning conditions for gifted students. Our excellent teachers and small class sizes allow a variety of teaching methods. This approach gives each child the academic foundation to learn through their highest learning level. We address the needs of the whole child by creating a nurturing environment that provides physical and artistic opportunities. Our students and programs have been recognized numerous times for outstanding achievements. Students who take full advantage of the Edlin curriculum leave the eighth grade ready for the rigors of the best public and private schools in the Washington, D.C. area and the nation.
