John Burroughs Elementary School is a Title 1 neighborhood school in Ward 5, located at the cusp of the Brookland and Woodridge communities in Washington, DC, serving PK3 through 5th grade. It is the only Established Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) -focused school in DCPS, recognized by the Office of the State Superintendent of Education, among only 4 other STEM elementary schools.

JBES fosters curiosity through exploratory projects and hands-on learning. We integrate Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math into a rigorous and collaborative learning environment to develop solutions in our community and beyond. Our goal is to make each student's experience exceptional.

The mission of John Burroughs Elementary Parent Teacher Organization is
a. To bring together the home and the school so that parents and teachers, school administrators and the community may cooperate mutually in the education and enrichment of our children.
b. To develop closer connections between school and home by engaging parent involvement.
c. To encourage communication between parents, teachers and school administration.
d. To provide those resources to the school that are not provided or not provided sufficiently for in the school budget and are deemed necessary or desirable by the staff for the support and education of the children at John Burroughs Elementary.
