Benjamin Stoddert Elementary School, built in 1932, was named after the first U.S. Secretary of the Navy Benjamin Stoddert. It is located in the Glover Park neighborhood of Northwest Washington, DC just north of Georgetown. The Glover Park community is an established neighborhood full of old trees and housing dating back to the 1920s and 1930s, and surrounded by forested parkland, the Glover-Archbold Park. Stoddert’s student population is drawn from the neighborhoods of Glover Park and Burleith (between Georgetown and Glover Park).
Stoddert Elementary School serves approximately 435 students in pre-kindergarten through 5th grade. The students hail from very diverse backgrounds, representing more than 36 different countries and languages.
