Washburn School’s Mission


Washburn School is a private, college preparatory, multicultural, pre-kindergarten to 12th grade, English-language day school whose mission is to offer a challenging, individualized, balanced, and caring educational program in a safe, nurturing family environment. Our goal is to empower our students to become creative thinkers, self-motivated life-long learners, effective communicators, ethical leaders, intellectual problem solvers, and socially responsible contributors. Washburn students actively embrace multilingualism as they become successful academically, socially, and emotionally to make a positive impact in our diverse community and world at large.



Washburn School’s Vision



Washburn School strives to be the benchmark of education in Southern, Puerto Rico by providing an innovative world-class educational program through dedicated, highly qualified, and well supported academic staff. We strive to maintain the best student to teacher ration in our region to maintain our unique individualized focus. Washburn prepares our graduates to qualify for scholarships, grants, funding, and acceptances at premier higher education institutions around the country. We help students become responsible and critical thinkers in an excellent school culture. We want students to be active in environmental responsibility, fully respectful to everyone, responsible for themselves, and their work. Washburn School hopes to form students that are highly motivated to achieve at their highest level, resulting in high academic achievement, a strong personal identity, social conscience, and the desire to contribute to society in a positive manner.

Our graduates will be prepared to thrive at the world’s finest colleges and universities. Washburn students will be introduced to an array of world cultures and become fully fluent in both English and Spanish within a few semesters at our institution.
