Anacostia Elementary Campus

Dear AEC Community,

The 2016-17 school year marked many new milestones for our AEC campus community. Not only did we welcome our very first class of kindergarteners, but we broke ground on the permanent home for our Anacostia Elementary – The Ruth and Norman Rales Campus at 1409 V Street, SE. I can’t wait to welcome students, families, and team members into our newly-renovated school building for the first day of the 2017-18 school year on Monday, August 28th!
Until then, I hope everyone in our community has a great summer break.

Maria-Teresa Duvall

Founding Principal

PS: Construction is underway on the permanent home for our campus community, located at 1409 V Street, SE! The soon-to-be renovated and remodeled building will be ready for the first day of classes in SY17-18. Until then, check out these community bulletins to stay in the loop on construction progress!
