Founded in 1969, National Presbyterian School is a co-educational school of approximately 300 students located in Northwest, Washington, DC.

National Presbyterian School focuses on the all-important decade of childhood, offering children from age 3 to Grade 6 the highest quality education in a joyful environment. We provide children the challenge, guidance and support they need to develop as successful learners and good people.

At NPS we celebrate childhood, the time of life when the greatest leaps of learning occur. Childhood gets our full attention, and our faculty and staff are experts at helping children learn and grow - intellectually, socially, emotionally, and spiritually - during these vitally important years.
We challenge students with an engaging academic curriculum while embracing Core Values that help students learn and practice what it means to live morally and ethically. And we create a learning environment where children feel loved and respected.
