E.L. Haynes is a public charter school located in the Petworth neighborhood of Washington, DC. We currently serve students in grades Pre-K to 8 and will grow, adding a grade each year until we are serving students through grade twelve. E.L. Haynes is named for Dr. Euphemia Lofton Haynes, the first African-American woman to receive a doctorate in mathematics, a teacher in the District of Columbia's school system for 47 years, and the first woman to serve as President of the District of Columbia Board of Education. Our school was founded in 2004 and is focused on creating a learning environment that is based on nationally-recognized best practices for advancing student achievement. At the core of our program is the unwavering belief that every student, regardless of race, socioeconomic status, or home language, is capable of reaching high levels of academic performance.
