Our community school is located in the Bryn Mawr Neighborhood and serves a diverse group of Pre-K, and Hi-5 through 5th-grade students. 

Our school values the highest degrees of individual student learning, and this is supported by our campus facilities. Our school was built in 1996 and is designed to fit the needs of pre-K through 5th-grade students.  Our Hi-5, Kindergarten, and 1st-grade classrooms feature individual student storage cubbies, in-class bathrooms, drinking fountains, and handwashing facilities.  While our 2nd-5th grade classrooms are large, with breathtaking views of the beautiful Theodore Wirth Park, this is adjacent to the perimeter of our school.  Our playground has a variety of large motor equipment for balancing, climbing, sliding, and swinging activities and large play and field areas for soccer and touch football, as well as hard surfaces for basketball, hopscotch, jump ropes, and ball play.

Our gymnasium features a full-size, well-lit, activity space that is shared by the community for a wide array of events for families and students. Our student's health and fitness are reinforced daily with nutritious breakfast, lunch, and snacks of fruit or vegetables and they are challenged to be physically active.

We have Specialists who teach Art, Vocal/Instrumental Music, Science and Physical Education. We offer Hi-5, All-day Kindergarten, and English as a Second Language (ESL). 

Bryn Mawr teachers, administrators, and support staff are dedicated to the success of all students.  We partner with the Bryn Mawr Neighborhood Association (BMNA) to collaborate on building a strong community environment.
