On September 22, we celebrated 81 years of Langley! Although much has changed since the school opened its doors to that first class of 19 children in 1942, we’ve never waivered from the child-centered focus our founders envisioned so many years ago. Learn more about Langley’s history>>
On September 18-19, sixth-graders spent two full days working with Calleva staff on the campus of The Madeira School. In addition to team-building activities on a low ropes course, students also assessed the water quality of the Potomac River watershed.
Students in grades 7 and 8 kicked off the year with a series of off-campus, grade-level trips that fostered team-building and bonding.
We were thrilled to welcome students back to campus today for the first day of school! It's going to be a great year filled with lots of learning, growth, and fun! Our theme for the year is Leaders. Thinkers. Creators., and we look forward to the continued work of increasing our students’ capacity in these areas by building on Langley’s exceptional curricular model, commitment to belonging, and highly connected community.
Congratulations to the 43 members of the Class of 2023 who graduated from Langley on June 9 during a lovely ceremony. We wish our graduates a fond farewell as they move on to the next stage of their educational journey!
