The most common elementary school names in the United States are Lincoln Elementary School, Washington Elementary School, Central Elementary School, Jefferson Elementary School and Roosevelt Elementary School. In general, the most common U.S. school names are based on geographic features or former presidents.
The Geographic Names Information System differentiates between schools with "elementary" in the name and schools that don't. Lincoln School, St. Mary's School, Washington School, Central School and School Number 1 are the most common school names in the United States, with some of them serving the elementary school-age population. Older presidents such as George Washington and Thomas Jefferson are more likely to have schools named after them than more recent presidents, such as Ronald Reagan or George Bush.
