“My organization, DC School Reform Now, has worked with parents all over DC over the last few years to help them gain more access to information about school options and quality. We launched the Virtual School Tours last year because while in-person school tours are always preferable, parents can’t always get to schools during school hours. They create great access to school information for parents across all Wards.
We have currently launched 10 Virtual School Tours that include, Two Rivers (which boasted the longest waitlist last year), Achievement Prep (an extremely high performing school in Ward 8) and E.L. Haynes—located in Petworth. We actually just launched the 11th this morning: Ingenuity Prep, a new charter school in Ward 8 with curriculum centered around civic leadership competencies.
The common deadline for submitting applications is March 3.”
