E.L. Haynes Public Charter School is an award-winning Pre-K-12th grade school named for Dr. Euphemia Lofton Haynes, the first African-American woman to receive a doctorate in mathematics and a DCPS teacher for nearly 50 years. E.L. Haynes currently serves 1,150 students from every ward in the city, with its two campuses located in the Columbia Heights and Petworth neighborhoods of the District.
E.L. Haynes holds diversity to be their greatest strength, and strives for every community member to act with urgency to build a just and equitable school and city. Driven by the belief that our nation's history of racial, economic, and social injustice still persist in our education systems, E.L. Haynes aims to help every student be adept at mathematical reasoning and use scientific methods effectively to frame and solve problems, in order to develop the lifelong skills needed to be a successful individual, an active community member, and a responsible citizen. The school's goal for daily efforts of all Pre-K-12 students is: "Be Kind. Work Hard. Get Smart."
