a designed response to systems of inequity by creating an inclusive and equitable world

We are empowering and preparing young people to design those responses. 
We believe in love, learning, and liberation.  
We are the Social Justice School. 


The Social Justice School is a 5th - 8th grade school in Washington, D.C.. Our mission is to catalyze an integrated community of middle-school learners to be scholar-activists who are designers of a more just world. In order to design a more just world, our students require an education that embraces and lives out a set of core beliefs about what it means to be human.
