Modernization

Starting in the summer of 2017, Kimball will begin renovations. Kimball has been awarded $51 million to improve the structure and design of the building. While we are working hard with DCPS, DGS, and other organizations, we need your help and input to make sure the new and improved Kimball is the best it can be for our children.

Swing Space

While the building is under construction, Kimball students, staff, and parents will use the former Davis Elementary School (4430 H St SE, Washington, DC 20019) as a swing space. In order to make this a smooth transition, please fill out our survey.
