Maret School was founded by Marthe Maret in 1911 as a French primary school. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, three French sisters, Mlles Marthe, Louise, and Jeanne Maret, left their home in Geneva, Switzerland to teach. Louise taught in Russia, Jeanne in the Philippines, and Marthe, who became blind at age 18, in Washington, D.C. By 1911, Louise and Jeanne had joined Marthe in the nation's capital where they were inspired to bring an international flavor to education. That year, Maret French School was founded, later to be named Maret School. In 1923, the Maret sisters moved the School to 2118 Kalorama Road with an enrollment of 185. - Source: Wikipedia
