Announcing our new Principal

Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Gregory C. Hutchings, Jr. would like to share with you that he has selected Loren Brody, an experienced principal with D.C. Public Schools, as the next leader of Charles Barrett Elementary School.

Brody, who will start in the role on July 1, will join ACPS from the Takoma Education Campus PK3-8 in the District of Columbia where he has served as principal since 2015. He has also served as a resident principal and assistant principal in District of Columbia Public Schools.

Brody brings with him an understanding of the Kennedy Center Arts Integration Program, a highly-coveted arts program used by staff and students at Charles Barrett to foster a deeper understanding of complex concepts. He has also undertaken multiple Kennedy Center Arts Teaching and Learning training opportunities to support all students.

During his time with Takoma, Brody increased the district school rating from two stars to three stars by driving student growth across all students in English Language Arts and Math.

He holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree from Yale University and a Master of Science in Educational Administration from Trinity University in Washington, DC.

You will have the opportunity to meet Mr. Brody in July as soon as he comes on board with ACPS.
