Washburn School is a private, college preparatory, non-profit, value-based, multicultural, total English immersion school focusing on Spanish as a dual language for Pre-K to 12th grade located in Ponce, Puerto Rico. We provide a rigorous academic program that prepares students for public and private universities and colleges worldwide, as shown by the hundreds of acceptances from our students with scholarships to universities around the nation. All the courses are taught in the English language except for an extensive, rigorous academic focus on Spanish as a dual main language, foreign language courses, such as French, and the culturally based Puerto Rican history class taught in the island's native language in Middle School. Washburn School earned accreditation from the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI),  the Northwest Accreditation Commission (NWAC), and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS CASI),  accreditation divisions of AdvancED (currently named Cognia).

 We are a small school by design at Washburn, and we value our tight-knit community. Teachers and students at Washburn School have the opportunity to enjoy working closely together and have easy access to one another at every single level, from Pre-K to 12th grade. We are a student body of approximately 260, with over 37 professionals as part of our staff.
