A pioneer in Mindfulness in schools, McLean School has conducted workshops and trainings for educators, parents, and students on the national, regional, and local level. A rapidly growing body of scientific research indicates that mindful practice reduces stress and aids focus and learning. Director of Student and Community Wellness, Frankie Engelking, and Mindfulness Coordinator, Rosie Waugh, offer techniques for learning the practice of Mindfulness (breathing, body and emotional awareness, empathy, heartfulness, gratitude, listening and communication), as they review the neuroscience and describe the benefits.
 
McLean’s Mindfulness Program has been featured in The Washington Post, The Atlantic, Bethesda Magazine, and NBC4.

K-12 College Preparatory School Supporting Bright Students’ Individual Strengths and Challenges.

McLean School is an independent, co-educational, K-12 day school serving Maryland, Washington, and Virginia. McLean has for over sixty years been helping students realize their full potential by providing a comprehensive college preparatory program that emphasizes small classes and differentiated instruction. We embrace both traditional learners and ones with mild to moderate learning challenges – dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, ADHD, and challenges related to anxiety and executive functioning. Many of our students excel in some areas while benefiting from support in others.
