The District of Columbia Public Schools (DCPS) is a diverse, urban school district serving students in the nation's capital. Situated at the center of national government, our goal is to provide students a quality education that prepares them to become future leaders, productive citizens, and employers/employees who are engaged in the life of the community. Where better than this forum to engage the community in the education and mentoring of our youngest citizens?
The systemic reform that is underway in DCPS is designed to improve and advance student achievement. Rigorous academic standards, challenging programs that link classroom experience with career options, and organizational structures that effectively support learning are but a few hallmarks of a school system striving to bring success within reach of every student.
