From our friends at Francis-Stevens PTA…Francis-Stevens is a PS-8 Education Campus located in Foggy Bottom/West-end of Dupont. One of the results of recent consolidation by DCPS is that Francis-Stevens will be merging with School Without Walls, an application-only public HS based near the campus of the George Washington University. Francis-Stevens PS-8 students will continue to occupy their current building and entry to Francis-Stevens will continue to be through DCPS’ PS/PK/OOB lottery. 70% of Francis-Stevens students come from OOB and the PTA hopes the school can continue to serve a citywide population.
See their brochure: SWW at FS Brochure Feb
Francis-Stevens is hosting the following Open Houses for prospective families (all grades):
*Saturday 2/16, 10am – Noon
Thursday 2/21, 8:30 – 10 am
*At this Saturday’s open house, School Without Walls (SWW) Principal Richard Trogisch – who will now administer FS as well as SWW – will outline his vision for the 2013/14 year and the future of Francis-Stevens. The Saturday session may be of particular interest to families looking at middle schools. Mr. Trogisch has mentioned plans to align Grades 5-8 curriculum with SWW and College Board standards.All sessions will take place at Francis-Stevens Educational Campus at 2425 N St. NW.
LOTTERY NOTE: DCPS now lists us as “School Without Walls at Francis-Stevens” on its on-line lottery form.Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( 1 so far )

It may still be the holidays, but our CHPSPO schools are busy planning for open houses, where they will showcase their programs. Open houses are a great way to check out your local or out of boundary schools.
DC Public Schools (DCPS) keeps a central list of upcoming open houses, but it’s a good idea to check in with the school, in case of inclement weather.
The DCPS pre-school/pre-K/out of boundary lottery for the 2012-13 school year is open January 30-February 27, 2012. Read more about this on the DCPS website.Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( None so far )
