Janney Elementary School serves nearly 700 students in Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 5 as part of the District of Columbia Public School system.

See DCPS Profile.

Our goal at Janney is to be a community of learners built on a foundation of inquiry, equity, reflection, collaboration, and experimentation.

  • Our students contribute to an atmosphere centered on respect, curiosity and diligence.
  • Our experienced staff leads students toward these high ideals by functioning as constant co-learners.
  • In addition to our core curriculum, students also take art, music, technology, physical education, and Spanish classes.
  • Our parents work tirelessly with the school and are always ready to support our students. The Parent Teacher Association is a highly respected organization that is actively involved in our school. 
  • We have an extended day program (Janney+), and we offer many afterschool enrichment courses, including foreign language options.
