Photo Essay: Inside the walls

Many GW students walk by it every day, but few are familiar with it. This area of Foggy Bottom is a campus for more than one educational institution. School Without Walls – a D.C. public high school named for its “outside-the-classroom” experiential learning philosophy – shares a neighborhood with GW and, thanks to a 25-year-old partnership between the schools, some facilities. The high school students take college courses at GW and have some access to other University facilities, while GW uses some of the school’s classroom space for nighttime courses. From standing next to them in the line at J Street to sitting next to them in biology class, School Without Walls students are a part of the GW experience. The Hatchet stepped inside the School Without Walls for a look at a school within a school.
