DC Prep is participating in EdFEST 2017. The event, sponsored by My School DC, officially kicks off the 2018-19 school year enrollment cycle. On Saturday, December 9th, from 11AM-3PM at the DC Armory our Enrollment Team will distribute information about the application and enrollment processes in the upcoming academic year, and answer questions about DC Prep’s award-winning educational model across all five campuses in Edgewood (Ward 5), Benning (Ward 7), and Anacostia (Ward 8).
This year’s EdFEST will take place just days before the official citywide 2018-19 school year application launches on Monday, December 11th. Stop by the DC Prep table to learn more about enrolling your child at DC Prep – the highest-performing network of public charter schools citywide for the past six years!

Today, the DC Public Charter School Board (PCSB) released 2017 Performance Management Framework (PMF) results for charter schools. The reports offer a comprehensive overview of public charter schools in the city – measuring performance on a variety of indicators including test scores, attendance, and re-enrollment rates, among others – and serve as a resource for families. PMFs score each school between 0-100, placing the school in one of three performance tiers. Tier 1 are top-performing schools, Tier 2 are mid-performing, and Tier 3 are low-performing.
In the 2017 PMFs, DC Prep’s Edgewood Middle and Elementary Campuses, Benning Elementary Campus, and Anacostia Elementary Campus (AEC) were designated Tier 1. Of special note, AEC achieved Tier 1 status in its first year of being scored.* Benning Middle Campus (BMC) missed the Tier 1 cut-off by six points and was designated Tier 2 for 2017; BMC is doing excellent work and we remain confident that performance this year will result in 2018 Tier 1 status. Looking ahead, we have more to do, including accelerating academic growth for all of our students.

*PMFs are not calculated for Year 1 schools – 2017 is AEC’s inaugural year of PMF eligibility.
