Stoddert Elementary School


Benjamin Stoddert Elementary School, named after the first U.S. Secretary of the Navy, 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 Burleith (between Georgetown and Glover Park), as well as welcoming a number of Out-of-Boundary students who reside throughout the District.

Stoddert Elementary School
Stoddert Renovated in 2010


This is a rendering of the 2010 expansion and renovation of Stoddert Elementary School. The expansion was a much-needed project as the student population in the neighborhood has greatly expanded in the past few years. The new Stoddert Elementary is the first school in DC to be fully heated and cooled by geothermal energy and is LEED-gold certified.

Overhead View of the Entire Grounds


This 2008 overhead view was the conceptual design for the Recreation Center and renovation of the school and grounds.  The work was completed in 2010, providing a modern showcase elementary school for the DC government and a great setting for young students to learn.
