About Us

Bancroft Elementary School is a dual language school located in the Mt. Pleasant neighborhood in Washington, DC. At Bancroft, our mission is to meet the educational, developmental and social needs of all students, inspiring and enabling them to reach their full potential in and beyond elementary school. We are guided in this work by our vision for Bancroft to be diverse and vibrant community of learners preparing all students to be high-achieving, bilingual global citizens who lead in the 21st century. As a community of learners which includes students, families, teachers and staff, we are committed to working together to ensure all our students achieve at high levels through a rigorous dual language program which promotes biliteracy and bilingualism. All this is done in a compassionate, safe and nurturing environment where diversity and self-­ expression are valued and celebrated.
