Our Mission

Martha Washington Elementary School is a child-centered and family oriented small learning community. Our goal is to provide our students with a solid elementary education as the basis for future learning and for model citizenship in the twenty-first century. We emphasize growth in academic and social skills. It is our desire to make each child feel protected, cared for, and respected as an individual.


Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! Here at Martha Washington, we are excited to begin what is sure to be an awesome school year! Our teachers are prepared and equipped to give your child the best learning experience ever. We pride ourselves on our state of the art instructional program that lends itself to truly educating your child for college and career success.

As a life long learner, teacher, and educational leader, I am a firm believer in the transformative power of education. By receiving a high quality education, students are afforded the opportunities to grow, learn, and maximize their full potential. It is my goal to encourage and inspire your student to take risks, explore new terrains, and empower them as 21st century learners.

In addition to our superb instructional program, we also have a number of student clubs, as well as our after school program (ACE) that will support your child’s education. Please call the school at 215-400-7770 to inquire.

Additionally, we encourage you to become active with our Home and School Association. Home and School is a wonderful way for you to share ideas and support the mission of the school. Another way to get involved includes volunteering to help tutor students after school, chaperoning field trips, and organizing classroom celebrations. As a collaborative school, we pride ourselves on drawing on the strengths of all stakeholders in order to improve the educational outcomes of our students. Together, as teachers, staff, parents, and community members, we will do great things! I can hardly wait to see the awesome things that your child will accomplish! Together we will go above and beyond and make sure that every child succeeds!



With Children In Mind,
