Welcome to Bethesda, Maryland. If you are moving here with school age children, then I am sure one of the biggest concerns is the choice of schools! The subject of schools – and which one to choose – is a favorite topic for me. Even though I was an Army brat, my family settled in the area and I attended Holton Arms School, a local private girls school, for middle school and high school. My son went to Landon, an all boys school in Bethesda, and my daughter attended Holton Arms, the same school from which I graduated. My husband’s grandson went to Walt Whitman, our local high school and his twin grand daughters went to Burning Tree Elementary. Whether you choose private schools, parochial, or public schools, there are lots of great choices in Bethesda. I am summarizing just the private schools here. If you have any questions or want more information, please give me a call at 240-401-5577. As a local Realtor, specializing in helping families relocating to Bethesda, I love answering your questions!
