Silver Spring Campus

Grades 4-12

The Siena School’s Silver Spring, Maryland, location opened in 2006. Originally located in a nearby church, in 2011 Siena purchased a building belonging to The Boy & Girls Club and began renovations. Today, the 30,000 square foot campus, conveniently located off the Capital Beltway, has 16 classrooms including three science labs, an art room and Maker space, a gymnasium, a black box theater, and playing fields for recess, intramurals, and competitive sports. Throughout the school, you will see touches that reference our namesake—Siena, Italy—as well as a strong presence of the award-winning arts program.

STUDENT BODY: The school serves approximately 135 students in grades 4-12.

CLASS SIZE: Classes are limited to 10 students per teacher.

VISIT US: We host a virtual tour of our Silver Spring campus and program every Wednesday from 9:30-11:30am. We encourage you to set up a discovery call with the admissions team.
