Beauvoir, The National Cathedral Elementary School
3500 Woodley Road, NW
Washington, DC 20016

For almost 80 years, Beauvoir, the National Cathedral Elementary School, has been a school with a 'beautiful view' of learning, providing young boys and girls with a dynamic educational foundation on which to build the rest of their lives. Beauvoir blends a unique tradition with a steady demand for innovation and strives to provide an environment that respects children and challenges them.

Beauvoir's dedicated and talented teachers understand the complexity of the learning process and know not only what to teach but how to teach young children. Each day, under their nurturing guidance, children at Beauvoir are challenged and supported to learn not only academics, but also the important values and character-building skills that will become integral to their lives. Supported by the most current and respected research on early childhood learning, Beauvoir has always known that the years between three and ten are the most intensely productive and vital learning years in a child's life. Children are active participants in their learning; involved in a search for knowledge that will grow throughout their educational journey.
