E.L. Haynes Public Charter School was founded in 2004 and has a program based on nationally recognized best practices for advancing student achievement. E.L. Haynes’ mission is that every E.L. Haynes student of every race, socioeconomic status, and home language will reach high levels of academic achievement and be prepared to succeed at the college of his or her choice. Every E. L. Haynes student will be adept at mathematical reasoning, will use scientific methods effectively to frame and solve problems, and will develop the lifelong skills needed to be successful individuals, active community members, and responsible citizens.
E.L. Haynes is moving steadily toward achieving this mission; in 2011, 77% of students scored proficient or advanced in math on the DC-CAS and 65% scored proficient or advanced in reading. The strength of our pre-K through 12 model is evident in the success of our oldest students. Ninety percent of last year’s 8th graders scored proficient or advanced in math and 75% scored proficient or advanced in reading.
In 2011-2012, E.L. Haynes serves 800 students in grades pre-school through 9 and will grow, adding a grade each year, until it serves students in grades pre-school through 12.
