Who we are

Hyde-Addison Elementary School provides education from pre-kindergarten through fifth grade.

While part of the larger DC Public Schools system, we are a tightly-knit, diverse community with its own unique culture. We are committed to educating the “whole child,” supporting each and every student academically, emotionally and socially. When you walk into our school, you will feel welcomed, supported, and challenged to be your best self. Our leaders, teachers, staff, and families are all deeply invested in making this a place where students are happy to come every day, where they will grow, and where they will be prepared for higher education and their careers.

Hyde-Addison’s unique culture is reflected in our Vision, Mission, and Core Values:



We seek to empower our children to lead meaningful and purposeful lives.



Through rigorous, student-centered learning, we seek to inspire a diverse group of learners that creates positive, lasting change in the world.
