Preparing Students for High School and Beyond
Stuart-Hobson’s program serves students in sixth through eighth grade, combining the warmth of a neighborhood school with a full range of academics and extracurricular activities. Graduates go on to succeed at top public and private high schools throughout the District of Columbia. Stuart-Hobson’s rigorous academic program includes all students engaged in core instruction (English, Math, Science, Social Studies) as well as two electives. All students complete pre-algebra by the end of eighth grade. Seventh and eighth grade students can earn high school credit by successfully completing Spanish and Algebra I/Geometry courses. Electives are also offered during the optional extended day in conjunction with the After-School All-Stars program.
Investing in Technology and Arts
A multi-million dollar facilities upgrade, completed in the fall of 2015, supports a re-invigorated arts integration and museum program and space for art, music, drama, exhibits, and a high-tech media center. Our renovated auditorium provides performance space. Students play and exercise outdoors on a new 13,200-square-foot field donated by the Synthetic Turf Council.
Partnerships Create Opportunities: Teachers partner with organizations and individuals throughout the District of Columbia to create exciting and varied learning opportunities.
