high-quality academic experiences
across every ward and in every school

Again, DCPS leads the nation in student improvement on the 2015 National Assessment of Educational Progress, earning distinction as the fastest-improving urban school district in the nation for the second consecutive time.

With multi-million dollar investments from two private foundations, DCPS' Cornerstones curriculum initiative standardizes learning experiences and expectations across all grade levels and subject areas.

Together with Washington, DC Mayor Muriel Bowser, DCPS and DC Ed Fund launched the Empowering Males of Color initiative in January 2015, devoting significant resources and attention to accelerating African-American and Latino male student achievement.
