Washburn School es una escuela de inmersión en inglés que busca formar estudiantes capaces de dominar dicha lengua a la par con los estudiantes y habitantes de cualquier país angloparlante. Aunque esa es sea la meta final, tenemos la misión de proteger y atesorar nuestra cultura hispana junto con nuestra tradición puertorriqueña. Es importante que el estudiante sea capaz de trabajar al máximo sus destrezas en ambas lenguas para que al final de su camino escolar, y al comienzo de su vida universitaria, pueda disfrutar de los beneficios de pertenecer al selecto grupo de estudiantes bilingües funcionales. 

We also offer these extra classes: Music, Physical Education, Computer, and Foreign Language.
