Our school history is evident in our name. In 1972, Bruce-Monroe Elementary School was built on Georgia Avenue as an integrated school. The name reflected two separate Black elementary schools which were closed: James Monroe, named for our fifth president, and Bruce, named in honor of Blanche Kelso Bruce- who was born in slavery and became an educator and the first Black US senator to serve a full term.
Bruce-Monroe Elementary (BMPV) is a high-poverty, dual-language, public school in Washington, DC that serves a diverse student body. The Parents and Teachers United (PTU) of BMPV asks for your support. We educate the whole child through a strong arts and science curriculum.
