At Washington Latin, we believe in the value of athletics for the entire student body. Coaches feel the responsibility not only to teach their players the skills and strategy behind the game but also to instill respect for the tradition of the game including honorable behavior. Learning to honor the game builds a sense of responsibility.
MAGIS Afterschool Program for MS Students
Washington Latin’s MAGIS Afterschool Program is offered to middle school students and operates from 3:20 pm to 6:00 pm, Monday-Thursday. The program is not offered on Fridays, school holidays nor half-days. Students may enroll for 1 to 4 days per week per session or for the entire year. Drop-in is also possible, though we may not be able to accommodate students joining a particular program as it is offered on as an as-is basis.READ MORE

Uniform Policy & Purchasing
Washington Latin PCS believes that appearance and neatness are important and requires students to meet the highest standards of dress and deportment. We believe parents are our partners in ensuring that students come to school each day well groomed. We require all students to wear uniforms and adhere to the Dress Code at all times while in the school building and at school-sponsored functions.
Philosophy – Attendance Matters! Consistent attendance in school plays a vital role in every student’s academic success and contribution to our community. We want all students at school as much as possible, so they can make the most of the educational opportunities offered in middle and high school. Benefits for the students include:
• Better academic results (immediately and over the long-term)
• More positive attitude about school
• Higher self-confidence
• Good habits that serve students throughout their education and beyond
