“All students deserve a school community that challenges them to realize their potential, both academic and social-emotional. In addition to individual growth, I believe deeply in the need to connect students with the world around them; responsibility to ourselves, our peers, and our world are core tenets of a complete education.”

Jared Winston joined Poly’s faculty in 2019 as a Middle School French teacher and became Director of Student Life for the Middle School and Upper School in 2021-22. He grew up speaking French and earned a BA in French Language and Literature from the University of Maryland and an MA in Educational Leadership and Administration from George Washington University. Since joining Poly, Jared has also served as Middle School Service Learning Coordinator. Additionally, Jared holds school principal licensure and has previous experience as a Director at the Washington International School along with other administrative roles in independent schools. A global vision along with a strong social justice education have always played an integral role in Jared’s approach to teaching and he believes that together, these have the power to inspire and open the hearts and minds of children and teens to the world around them.
