Mary M. Bethune Elementary School is one of the ten schools in the Achievement Zone. The Achievement Zone is a geographic area that makes up the Banneker High School attendance boundary. Launched in 2015, the Achievement Zone is designed to accelerate the school district's efforts to improve academic outcomes for the students who attend schools within the Zone.  To boost student achievement during the 2016-17 school year, the Achievement Zone is exploring changes to the school calendar
and school day.
