The Power of a Connected Community
Connecting our alumni, current students, families, and faculty as a whole community underscores our belief that meaningful relationships and a sense of belonging are the most powerful wellsprings of The Potomac School’s ethos.
Potomac's distinctive character was formed more than a century ago. The spirit of discovery, a child’s spontaneous ability to explore and engage the world through play, and the power of community to elicit each student’s greatest potential were the tenets that three women embraced as they opened Potomac’s doors at Dupont Circle in 1904. For generations since, these guiding principles have held true. And our character, values and ideals have remained steadfast.

Planning to Visit Campus?
It’s no surprise that our alumni want to come back to campus to visit favorite teachers, participate in classroom discussions, and cheer for the Panthers – and we are eager to welcome you! Please be aware of the following procedures that will help facilitate your visits to Potomac:
• During school hours (8:00 am to 3:30 pm), we ask that you email the Alumni Office to arrange your visit at least 24 hours in advance. Security staff at the gatehouse will be informed, and when you arrive, you will be directed to the Flag Circle Building to obtain a visitor pass.
• You might find yourself in the vicinity of Potomac School Road and want to just drop by. If you arrive on campus without an appointment, our friendly staff at the Gate House will notify the Alumni Office and direct you to the Flag Circle building to get a visitor pass. Alumni Office staff will do our best to escort you around campus and find out if individuals you would like to visit are available. Surprise visits during school hours can be disruptive to teachers and students, so we ask that you follow these protocols to make things work for everyone.
• After school hours, you are welcome to attend games, performances, and other scheduled events on campus, as long as there are no event-specific restrictions. No appointment is needed; just come on by!
We hope to see you at Potomac soon.
