The eight Capitol Hill public schools represent a broad cross-section of DCPS schools. Some are among the highest performing schools, while others have a history of poor performance. Some are fully enrolled, while others struggle each year with declining enrollment. Together this group of schools is among the most racially and socio-economically diverse communities of schools in the DC public school system.
Right now, 50% of the 2,500 students enrolled in these schools are reading below grade level and 56% are economically disadvantaged.Neglected libraries symbolize to children, and the community, that education is not valued. Vibrant libraries send a powerful message to children that school is a special place and their learning is important to the adults in their community.
