Our New Home

We are very pleased to share that The Harbor School is moving to Congregation Har Shalom at 11510 Falls Road, Potomac, MD in August 2020. 

The facility at Har Shalom meets the criteria identified in our community survey, including close proximity to our current location, classrooms with natural light, indoor movement and specials space, and a community gathering venue. Our students will be particularly excited about the recently updated, multi-sensory outdoor playground, designed specifically for young learners. The facility will provide us with approximately 12,000 square feet of educational space (about the same size as our current building at St. George), and an outdoor play space of more than 3,500 square feet (much larger than our current playground).

Our Relocation FAQ

The Harbor School Board of Trustees assembled a Search Committee with membership taking into account the core principles of ensuring inclusivity, a diversity of perspectives, and a strong range of skill sets. The Committee, in consultation with commercial real estate broker Mark Richardson of Cushman & Wakefield, pursued dozens of ideas, leads, and opportunities and considered purchases, office space conversions, and lease options. Ultimately, we concluded that a lease option was the best path to fully execute our dynamic program at Harbor.

Search Committee members included:

  • Michael Bailey, Trustee and Assistant Principal of Primary School, Washington International School
  • Kameha Bell, Current Parent and Alumni Parent and Chair of the Board of Trustees
  • Cary Kountoupes, Trustee and Alumni Parent
  • Leah Musico, Head of School
  • Eric Posner, Current Parent and Trustee
  • Dana Riley, Business Officer
  • Andrea Zuraf, Assistant Head and Director of Admissions
  • Marc Washington, Trustee and Current Parent
