Project Summery

West Education Campus, located at 1335 Farragut Street, NW, currently serves students in PK3- through Grade 5 with a projected enrollment of 557.

West was one of the few remaining open concept schools in the District. The open-space school concept, popular in the 1960s, presented a challenging educational environment for today’s teachers and students. At completion, West better reflects 21st Century Learning environment guidelines, as well as educational and programmatic space needs as specified in DCPS Educational Specifications. West has the distinction of being among the District’s first Net Zero Energy-Ready and WELL Certified School. The building is approximately 90,000 square feet spread over two floors and has a total of 32 classrooms along with an outdoor amphitheater, ball field, playgrounds, etc.

On August 26, 2021, West Elementary School was renamed John Lewis Elementary School in honor of the longtime congressman and champion of civil and human rights.
