Welcome to Our School

Potomac Elementary School has a tradition of excellence in education since 1923. Our Chinese Immersion Program has received national media attention. We are also an  arts integration  school where teachers develop expertise in integrating the arts with other instruction, such as social studies or science, and it is designed to help all students learn with more motivation and ease. We have expanded our efforts to be STEAM school. Students explore science residencies, coding, family engineering projects, etc. Potomac Elementary School also was designated as a  Maryland Green School and a National Geographic Eco School in 2014.
