From a press release:

“The Office of the Deputy Mayor for Education (DME) and the Department of General Services (DGS) awarded the Hamilton School at 1401 Brentwood Parkway NE to KIPP DC and the Charles E. Young Elementary School at 820 26th Street NE to Two Rivers Public Charter School. KIPP DC plans to move its existing high school to Hamilton, where it will have room to expand. Two Rivers will replicate its highly successful preschool-through-8th-grade program at Young. Both schools plan to open these new sites in time for the 2015-2016 school year.”

  • i think it’s great that old schools remain schools. the way this city is changing we are really going to need them. i know lots of parents that really want to stay in DC when their kids hit school age and can’t afford private (myself included).

    • +1. we do not need to be giving these assets to developers for condos while forcing chartered public schools to scramble for space in the commercial real estate market. great news for DC, for families, and for efforts to revitalize neighborhoods.

  • Excited! My little one will hopefully be at the new location. #Iwontbeinthepoorhouse
