Stoddert Elementary School is the most overcrowded school in Washington, DC at 135% over capacity.
Stoddert’s building was built to contain 320 students and currently 435 students are enrolled. To date, DCPS, the Deputy Mayor For Eduction and our elected officials have not acknowledged the problem or provided a plan to alleviate the overcrowding at Stoddert.
The Stoddert PTO assembled an Overcrowding Committee to advocate for solutions to the problem. The committee is made up of Stoddert parents and staff, as well as Glove Park community members.
