George Washington didn't attend public schools or go to college. He was home schooled or possibly went to a school on his plantation or nearby. Nothing is known about who his …teachers were. He may have taken some classes at William and Mary to obtain his surveyors license.
George Washington's education is largely a mystery. He obviously was taught basic reading and writing and arithmetic. His family most likely hired a school master or private t…utors for him at their plantation home. High schools as know them did not exist until long after Washington's day.
George Washington did not go to school, he was taught at home by his father and uncle.
George Washington earned a surveyor's certificate from the Collegeof William & Mary.
Well he went to lots of different schools. The first school he went to was Lincoln School in Nesho, Missouri. He went to Iowa State and Highland College but got rejected becau…se he was black. Hope this is helpful....? well it was helpful for me

Washington most likely did not go to school. Somebody on the plantation taught him the basics of reading, writing and arithmetic.
he went 2 yale university of America
If you can read this you went to school longer than he did. Only went till fifth grade and he couldn't read.
George went to a local school near his farm when he was little.
Washington did not have any formal schooling. He was an apprentice to a surveyor, a British military officer in the War of 1812, General of American forces in the revolution, …and President. He was also a plantation owner. His schooling was very limited. An education man in his time knew how to speak and write French, but Washington did not. Since he was a second son it was expected that he would get some formal training through an apprenticeship ( which he did) to be able to support himself. When he married Martha she was a wealthy widow and this gave him the means to go beyond the standard of living that he may have normally had. The French and Indian War also gave him a means to go to Congress in 1776 and cite that he was the man to command the American troops. He was smart, very political, and had the ability to command people.
Washington, the son of a small planter, grew up in rural VA. He did not go to any formal schools and as a young man was apprenticed as a surveyor. He became a British officer …in the French and Indian War and this is where he gained military experience that would serve him well in the revolution. After the war he married Martha Curtis a rich widow with 2 children. After the death of his brother he inherited Mt. Vernon and became a plantation owner.
