Mundo Verde Bilingual Public Charter School is Washington’s first “green” public charter school. The school is dedicated to educating young people to become global stewards in an increasingly complex world.
Mundo Verde is located at 30 P Street NW. The school opened in August 2011 and currently teaches students in PreK-3 through fifth grade. The school is free to DC residents and admits students by lottery.
Mundo Verde aims to foster high levels of academic achievement among a diverse group of students by preparing them to be successful and compassionate global stewards of their communities.
Mundo Verde’s curriculum is framed around the unifying mission-specific themes of biliteracy and sustainability. It emphasizes:
The mastery of literacy and language acquisition in both English and Spanish
High performance in all subjects including math, science, social science and the arts
Support for the development of higher order cognitive and critical thinking skills and deep understanding of complex issues
The integration of sustainability-focused content and values across the curriculum
Hands on, project-based learning expeditions and learner-centered instruction
Preparation for rigorous college-preparatory high schools
As a D.C. public charter school, Mundo Verde is free and open to all D.C. residents. Mundo Verde participates in the My School DC common application and lottery every year. Families can only apply at myschooldc.org.
Please visit My School DC to get detailed information about the enrollment process.
Over the last few years, Mundo Verde has experienced great growth and finally realized a PreK- 5th Grade elementary program in 2016.
