Azerbaijan School in Washington DC was established on February, 2017. The school is supported by the Embassy of Azerbaijan in Washington D.C. and the USA-Azerbaijan Chamber of Commerce. Children of Azerbaijani communities living in Washington D.C., Virginia and Maryland are main attendees of the school. The classes are provided on Saturdays, 10.00 a.m.-12.00 noon (depending on the events, because of the preparation of dances the classes might last until 1.00pm).  Dates for the fall semester include September 15 – December and the spring semester lasts from January till May.

 

At Azerbaijan School we strive to engage and inspire children from Azerbaijani families in learning and improving Azerbaijan language skills, and sharing information on history and culture of Azerbaijan. We do that through interactive classes, cultural events and activities.

 

Azerbaijani language is the priority class at the school. We have three groups divided by ages and language skills: one group for children between 4-6 years of age and two other groups for children between 7-12 years of age.

 

National dance classes include Azerbaijani dances such as “Eynur”, “Turaji”, “Sari gelin”, “Popurri”, “Cucelerim”, “Xanchobani”, “Agchicheyim”. 

 

Students celebrate the State Independence Day (October 18), International Solidarity Day of Azerbaijanis and New Year (December 31 - January 1), Nowruz holiday (March 20-22) and Azerbaijan Democratic Republic (May 28) during the year.  

 

Activities – Students of Azerbaijan School performed dances at the events provided by the Embassy of Azerbaijan, the USA-Azerbaijan Chamber of Commerce, the George Washington University, the World Bank. They are actively involved in the cultural events by various organizations as well.
