Our Impact

Expeditionary Learning Program

A note from the Principal’s Office

Welcome to the Mt. Washington School Foundation website!  Mt. Washington School is a Cincinnati Public neighborhood school located in Mt. Washington.  The school has been in existence for over 100 years and has a rich history in the local community.  Inspired by our roots, the staff and students focus daily on three dimensions of learning:  Mastery of Knowledge and Skills, Character and High Quality Work.  

Mt. Washington staff and students work together as a crew.  We are crew, not passengers, strengthened by acts of service to others.  Our crew is stronger thanks to the generous support of donors and partners in our community.  Donations received by the Mt. Washington Foundation will be used for experiential learning field trips, curriculum enhancements, technology resources, social emotional development programs and teacher professional development. 

On behalf of the school, thank you for partnering with us and we appreciate your financial support.

Mt. Washington School takes a holistic approach to meet the needs of our students so they reach their fullest potential – physically, emotionally and academically. To help with physical needs, the school provides health and wellness services, dental care, vision services, behavior health, and nutritional support along with basic essentials such as clothing, toiletries and other home needs. After school enrichment programing assists with the academic and emotional needs through: Art, Music, Coding, STEM, Cooking, Yoga, Sports, Nature, Safety Patrol and much more!!! The learning fun continues with annual field trips to the symphony, ballet and the zoo. Thanks, in part to our school foundation and more than 130 community learning center partners, other amazing activities and learning opportunities are available to our students. These include Learning Beyond the Classroom, Camp Kern, Leadership for team building & problem solving skill development, Nature Studies, Crew-Day field trips for grades 3-5 and a 2 night field trip for 6th grade. Everyday incentives for good behavior help keep our students focused on being respectful, responsible and ready to learn.


Inside our school, we have access to a wonderful library, a must-have technology and state-of-the-art classroom learning environments. We have a positive and inclusive learning environment that includes a robust early literacy program, a comprehensive math curriculum, Latin for all students (grades 4-6), intervention programming for students with special needs and programs for gifted students. We have highly qualified, caring teachers with advanced degrees that not only cover the required materials but also help students to explore academic opportunities for beyond the school day, career opportunities and college.


We have advanced technology in all classrooms. All students have access to desktop computers and laptop computers in our computer lab. Students in grades 3-6 are provided with an individual laptop computer to use during the school day. This is the perfect way to engage with and prepare for the fast moving and ever changing world of technology. Our Mt. Washington School Foundation provides support to keep all students competitive and forward thinking.
