Stoddert Elementary


Stoddert is a special place. It’s a unique neighborhood school, located in the heart of the tree-lined community of Glover Park in Northwest Washington, D.C. Our multicultural school serves families from the community (our families represent over 23 countries!) and many military families from Washington, D.C.’s Bolling Air Force Base. At Stoddert, everyone associated with the school-from the principal to the staff and parents-shares a strong commitment to providing a first rate education in a nurturing, safe, secure, and learning standards-based setting.

All of Stoddert’s educational programs are aligned to the District of Columbia Public School System’s standards and all children engage in motivating and challenging learning experiences.

Addressing the Needs of Our Students

Stoddert faculty and staff take pride in responding to the needs of all students. Every student visits the school’s library and computer media center weekly. Classroom teachers integrate information literacy instruction through collaboration with the school’s media and computer technology specialists and the Georgetown Public Library.
