Euphemia L Haynes Public Charter School, Inc. (E.L. Haynes)

E.L. Haynes Public Charter School is an award-winning Pre-K-12th grade school named for Dr. Euphemia Lofton Haynes, the first African-American woman to receive a doctorate in mathematics and a DCPS teacher for nearly 50 years. E.L. Haynes was founded in 2004 by Jennifer C. Niles. From our humble beginnings above a CVS drugstore serving 139 students in grades Pre-K-2, E.L. Haynes has grown steadily and strategically. We now serve nearly 10 times as many students in grades Pre-K through 12. We have developed three beautiful facilities across two campuses in the Columbia Heights and Petworth neighborhoods of Washington, DC. Over the years, E.L. Haynes has become nationally recognized and is the recipient of numerous awards, accolades, and visits from state and foreign dignitaries. In 2015, we celebrated our first high school graduation.
