Parents are always welcome and are invited to work closely with teachers to ensure that each child receives the attention he/she needs to succeed. At Maury, we educate the whole child in a safe, multi-dimensional environment. Initiatives at Maury include the Principal’s “Book of the Month”, the Schoolyard Stewards Program in partnership with Living Classrooms of the National Capital Region, “Art Around the Corner” in partnership with the National Gallery of Art, Folger Shakespeare Theater partnership, before- and after-school programs, dance classes through Joy of Motion at the Atlas Theater, chess club, and multiple tutorial programs.
