Janney Elementary, built in 1925, was one of the first Colonial Revival-style "extensible" schools designed by Municipal Architect Albert Harris and constructed under the District's Five-Year Building Program. A response to population growth in Tenleytown and the greater District after World War I, the new school was designed to be easily expanded as necessary. The full building was completed in 1932.
