What's Great About Martin Luther King, Jr. Elementary School


Welcome to Martin Luther King, Jr. Elementary School (MLK). MLK is a Middle States accredited school located in Ward 8, the District's southernmost section of the city.  Our 6th Street and Alabama Avenue, Southeast address places us in the heart of the Anacostia community.  Ward 8 is experiencing revitalization efforts by developers and those wishing to expand housing and economic development opportunities. Consequently, MLK students and their families will continue to improve the quality of their lives through the development of over 900 new single family homes, condominiums and rental units; the construction of the ARC, a 51 thousand square foot education, performing arts and recreation center, a new Metro station located on the grounds of St. Elizabeth's Hospital Center; the long anticipated S.E. Tennis and Learning Center, as well as many new businesses. MLK will actively seek to form partnerships, that will benefit our students educational and cultural growth, with our new neighbors. MLK has an enrollment of approximately 400 students.
