For those bringing families to DC, it can be worthwhile to research local schools.
Find a School
Helpful resources include Greatschools.org, a database that rates schools on various criteria and assigns a numerical score. The school assignment tools allow you to see what school is assigned to a given address in DC, Maryland or Virginia.
To use these tools, search for “school assignment tool” and a town or county, select the site for that town/county, and then type an address. This will show the assigned school, which then can be checked against the Greatschools database.
