Washington Global Public Charter School is a community school open to all middle school students in Washington, DC. Washington Global uses the The International Middle Years curriculum, a college prep, internationally-based academic curriculum. Their program also includes project-based learning, service-learning, technology classes, and foreign languages. This new Public Charter Middle School opened in the Fall of 2015. The school has negotiated a long term lease to occupy an 1960’s vintage 5-story office building in SW Washington DC. The school renovated the building through phased construction, following the natural growth of the school and the consequent availability of funding. The initial phases renovated the first and fourth floor interiors consisting of approximately 11,500 SF using a Design-Build delivery method. The school is considering LEED certification.
