About Perkins K-8 School
CAPITOL KIDS: Our students in Washington, D.C., with view of the Potomac and Washington Monument
When you walk on our campus, you see students in action, setting goals, and working towards reaching their goals for the future. We provide strong leadership to our students and high expectations, and we offer them so many inspirational programs that help them raise their academic sights higher. The annual Spelling Bee. Soccer Club. Astronomy Club, a chess program, a Russian Club complete with language instruction. International travel. Trips to the White House. Trips to space. An annual Science Fair with awesome projects like sending a weather balloon 90,000 feet above the atmosphere and following its trajectory using GPS global positioning -- an experiment first done by MIT university students that our secondary students figured out just as successfully!
