North Bethesda (White Flint) Reviews & Recognition

The love and commitment of our Goddard families inspires us every day. To help make each child’s learning experiences the best they can be, we are always happy to listen when parents share their expectations. Here’s what our families have to say.

  • Every teacher and admin knows my child by name. There are always positive vibes when arriving to the school. The teachers are so professional, always composed and child-focused even when the kids are having hard days. I appreciate the extra activities and celebrations to mark holidays, seasons, etc. The security and structure provide so much peace of mind. All around excellent. Thank you!

  • We have loved the Goddard School of North Bethesda for our 2 daughters over the last 2 years, and have seen them grow and learn more than we thought was possible over that time. I know that they're loved and well taken care of, learning in a fun environment, and that the teachers and administrators put a lot of care and thought into developing all of the systems, spaces, programming and curriculum for them and all of the kids who attend.
