Welcome to Katherine G. Johnson Elementary

  • Katherine G. Johnson is the first new elementary school in our district in 13 years, and the first completed school funded by our 2019 bond.

    The new school’s namesake, Katherine G. Johnson, was an American mathematician who calculated and analyzed the flight paths of spacecraft during her more than three decades with the U.S. space program. Among many other accomplishments, her groundbreaking work helped send astronauts to the moon as part of 1969’s Apollo 11 mission.

    “Katherine G. Johnson has inspired us to reach for the stars and that’s what we’re inspiring our kids to do. So, we talk about her, we’ve read about her, we’re learning about her. We’re using her as an inspiration for our kids to be future scientists and engineers, mathematicians, artists,” said Mary Waddell, a STEAM specialist at the school.
