Back to School 2016


Vanessa Gonzalez

As summer winds to a close, DC’s students and teachers are heading back to school, and with the new year brings new learning opportunities across the city. While many students headed back on August 22nd, other students are already several weeks into the school year, thanks to a new DC Public Schools extended school year initiative, and similar extended year programming at charter schools such as KIPP DC and E.L. Haynes.

This year, five new schools are opening across the city, offering an array of programming, including an all-male high school in Ward 7, a Montessori program in Petworth, a Ward 8 elementary school that emphasizes family engagement, a Brookland high school that offers computer programming, and a downtown campus for adult learners. You can read more about the new schools by following the links below:

We are excited to wish all students, families, and teachers a great start to a productive and engaging school year!
