As we celebrate 20 years, here's our progress. In school year 2016-17, 65 nonprofits operate 118 schools that educate students living in every ward in the city, up from three schools in 1996.

The DC public charter schools are public and tuition-free, open to all students, and they do not have selective entrance requirements. They offer District families a wide variety of quality educational choices.

School Equity Reports display a three-year trend of public school students, DCPS and public charter schools, consistently doing better overall. 

The annual EdFEST is this Saturday, December 10, 2016 at the DC Armory. (2001 East Capitol).
