If you have kids and are looking for a school for them, here's an opportunity to check out Tubman Elementary School at 13th and Kenyon, which looks like it's one of the top-rated in the ward. Here's more from ANC commish Laina Aquiline:
Tubman Elementary School (3101 13th St NW, bt Irving & Kenyon) had a great open house on Jan. 17. This DCPS rising star is an educational gem of Columbia Heights and Ward 1. Under the strong leadership of Principal Harry Hughes, reading and math scores have consistently and solidly risen over the last several years. GreatSchools has just rated Tubman an impressive 9 out of 10, the best rating of Ward 1 elementary schools, along with Adams Morgan's Marie Reed ES and U St. Corridor's Meridian Hill PCS.
Please attend our open houses to see the school in action and learn more about the promising things going on there. With the continued investment from community families and stakeholders, Tubman is well on its way to becoming the premier DC elementary school east of Rock Creek Park. Join us in the effort.
