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 a very small portion of Cathedral Heights south of Cathedral Avenue and west of Wisconsin Avenue.
Stoddert Elementary School serves approximately 470 students in PK4 through 5th grade. Stoddert students represent more than 30 different countries and languages. Stoddert was honored to receive the first Green Ribbon School award for exemplary achievement in environmental impact and energy efficiency, health and wellness, and environmental education from the U.S. DOE. Stoddert was one of the first DCPS schools to receive Reward School status by demonstrating an outstanding record of high student achievement, and was recently honored as a continued Reward School recipient. In 2018, Stoddert was recognized as a National Blue Ribbon School, and in 2019 was voted Best Elementary School in DC.
