  • Downtown Elementary was established in 2003 as an Enriched Academics optional school within a school that fosters a focus on Social Studies. Due to our location in downtown Memphis, we are able to be a "living laboratory" in the heart of city government. We take walking field trips to government, historical and other educational locations that are nearby.We have a diverse student body that allows students to develop an appreciation and understanding of other cultures. 

    We focus on the four core values of relationships, transparency, accountability and trust when educating and nurturing the whole child. In addition to our rigorous academic curriculum, our students participate in CLUE, Orff music, computer technology, physical education and art courses. Before and after-school care is provided by the YMCA. We hold monthly parent meetings to provide resources for parents to support their students.
