At Tyler we engage, educate and empower all learners.

Welcome to Tyler Elementary School on Capitol Hill. We offer an array of unique educational programs to meet the needs of our diverse community. Serving over 500 students ranging from Preschool through 5th grade, Tyler is a welcoming and caring environment that fosters a love of art, language and culture. As an Arts Integration school all students at Tyler learn in and through the arts, creating a rigorous and relevant learning environment.

Principal’s Message


One of the most brilliant leaders of our time once said that, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” Mr. Nelson Mandela also pointed out the fact that “there can be no keener revelation of a society’s soul than the way in which it treats its children.”

With a warm and welcoming atmosphere, dedicated teachers, and a rich tapestry of cultures representative of our community, I welcome you to John Tyler Elementary School! I welcome you to the place where all stakeholders know the value of an awesome education, and who have the highest expectations for our very own Tyler Tigers to go out and conquer the world! I welcome you to the place where all children are treated kindly, nurtured, taught, mentored, coached, and inspired to become their best selves!

I am honored to lead a school that is fully committed to academic excellence. At Tyler, we all thrive because our school is dedicated to educating the whole child in a comprehensive, well-rounded program that lays the foundation for all children to reach their potential as they develop independent habits of mind as well as a lifelong passion for learning. Together, with our families and the community, the staff and students of Tyler ES will continue to collaboratively work toward our mission to ENGAGE, EDUCATE and EMPOWER.

Again, welcome to Tyler ES, we look forward to you hearing our roar!
