PEABODY PRIMARY CAMPUS

425 C St NE   |   (202) 698-3277

Peabody provides a nurturing, developmentally-appropriate beginning to students’ school experience. Using Responsive Classroom techniques, teachers and staff encourage cooperation, empathy, responsibility, self-control, and collaborative problem-solving for students in PK3-K.

Children learn through a variety of teacher-led and independent activities, including a daily morning meeting and student-chosen center time. Play is an important part of every day, with ample recess time and special classes, including physical education, to keep students moving, while a daily rest period gives our littlest ones some quiet time each afternoon.

Students leave our early childhood campus with strong foundations in literacy, mathematics, science, and social studies. All classrooms are staffed by a teacher who is assisted by a paraprofessional. Peabody’s staff includes dedicated special education teachers, before- and after-care, art instruction, library, physical education, and music. All students participate in the PTA-supported FoodPrints curriculum, which uses activities such as planting, harvesting, and cooking to teach concepts in science, math, social studies, physical education, and writing, all while promoting healthy eating.
