Potomac's Lower and Middle Divisions

Among the unifying principles that connect one division to the next is the conviction that students learn best when they learn with others, when they explore and build upon one another’s ideas. Our students engage in collaborative learning activities and service learning projects. The joy of learning and the spirit of challenge brim from our classrooms each day.

We are a community that embraces diverse voices and viewpoints, and this diversity enriches a Potomac education in myriad ways. Our campus is distinguished by a spirit of joy and camaraderie that supports each student's journey of learning and personal growth.
