Our commitment is to develop in a caring community an individual who seeks excellence and embraces the "Driving Spirit" of Flint Hill School.
Philosophy
Flint Hill School, founded in 1956 and reorganized in 1989, has been created and shaped through the years by a blending of constituencies. The faculty and student body are encouraged to experience the joy of learning and growing in a community of many members and to appreciate the riches of the diverse environment of the Greater Washington Area. Located on two campuses, a JK-8 Lower School campus and a 9 - 12 grade Upper School campus, a quarter-mile away, FHS supports just over one thousand

The school enrolls students from Junior Kindergarten through grade twelve who exhibit high standards of character and conduct and the potential for achieving success in a demanding academic program. Different learning styles are recognized and personalized attention given; special academic help is offered as long as the student responds positively and diligently. Learning how to learn, through mastery of critical thinking, problem solving and writing skills, is given as much attention as mastery of subject matter.

At the heart of the Flint Hill School philosophy is the belief that the community life of the school inspires students to respect individual differences in social, intellectual, racial and religious backgrounds while enjoying the rich experience of being bound together by service to the shared life of the school.
