About Harriet Tubman Elementary


Tubman offers a comprehensive, rigorous academic program serving the needs of all learners. We offer rich math and literacy programs. All students take Spanish, STEM, art, music and PE. We believe in applied learning and use the resources we have living in DC including rich field trips, partnerships with Live It, Learn It, Young Playwrights’ Theater and organizations focusing on health and local food. We use the Tools of the Mind curriculum for our youngest learners allowing them to learn organically through exploration and play. The Tubman community is hard working, passionate about learning and eager to partner with families to best support our children in becoming informed and compassionate citizens. Along with our community partners and families, we are putting students on a path to college and empowering them to change the world.
