Welcome to the Edgewater Schools website!

George Washington School provides an optimal learning environment for Edgewater’s Pre-k 3 and 4, Kindergarten, first and second grade students to begin their educational careers.  Our teaching staff utilize our district academic programs to deliver the core content standards, while differentiating and individualizing learning on a regular basis.  We are fortunate to work and learn every day in a beautiful four year-old building that has the space and resources that students need to succeed.  While a great focus is placed on academics, equally important is the social development of students at this young age.  Students must learn self-sufficiency and love of learning while in the primary years, so that it can carry over to their later schooling.  We appreciate very much the support of our PTO (Parent Teacher Organization) that assists our students as well.  As parents, your job is to put your child in the optimal position to learn each and every day.  Being in school on time everyday is absolutely essential for your child to achieve his or her best.  Please use this website as a resource for information involving our school community. 

I look forward to working with you to make your child’s days at GW as fulfilling as possible!

Chris Kirkby – GW Principal
