Van Ness Elementary
The new Van Ness Elementary School reopened in Fall 2015. Since then, amazing things have happened. Our school building and grounds have been transformed into to an engaging and beautiful place for our children to learn and thrive. We also have a beautiful school garden and playgrounds for our younger and older children. Van Ness Elementary now serves Pre-K3 through 4th grade.
We hope you join our excitement for Van Ness. Go Otters!

DCPS requires that all school volunteers pass a full background clearance. This includes receiving a TB test within the previous 12 months and completing fingerprinting. Once your clearance is completed, it is valid for 2 years. The process is detailed here: https://dcps.dc.gov/page/dcps-volunteer-faqs.
