Welcome to Adaire Elementary!

Alexander Adaire Elementary is a public Pre-kindergarten to 8th grade school in the Fishtown neighborhood of Philadelphia. Our school was established in 1891 and is named after one of Fishtown’s famous residents and advocates for public education, Alexander Adaire. We are proud to continue his legacy by providing excellent public education to our students in the community!

Happy New Year! We have so many wonderful things to celebrate in this 2023-24 school year! Our new Pre-K program is off to a great start and our beautiful new mural has brightened up our school and neighborhood!
