On April 23, The Langley School welcomed world-renowned primatologist Dr. Jane Goodall to campus for the school’s Earth Day assembly. Goodall, who previously visited Langley in spring 2005, spoke to students about the importance of caring for the Earth and its inhabitants. She also described some of her early experiences with animals and explained why she decided to travel to Tanzania in the 1960s to study wild chimpanzees. Goodall praised Langley for its many green initiatives and was thrilled by the enthusiasm of the students.

The Langley School is a coed independent school in McLean educating students in preschool through eighth grade.
