About

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.

Janney is exceptional because of our beliefs, our role in the community, our people and our programs. 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 PTA (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.

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