Which school will

your child call

My School?

DC residents have many public school options. Finding the best fit for your child just got a lot easier.

For this coming school year (2014–15), DCPS and participating DC public charter schools will have a common application and a common lottery. Find everything you need right here to learn, apply, and enroll.

The Round 1 and Round 2 lotteries are complete. What happens next?

Round 1 and Round 2 of the lottery are complete. Students who were not matched in either lottery will stay on the waitlists of the schools they applied to.

All families can apply to additional schools through MySchoolDC.org beginning May 30. Applications will be sent directly to schools as they are received, and schools will process them in the order they are received. There will be no ranking or lottery. Schools will contact families directly to let them know if they were accepted or waitlisted. Families also can enroll their children at their right-to-attend schools for grades K–12 without submitting an application.

Please note that a student’s individual waitlist number is not updated on MySchoolDC.org. If your child is waitlisted, the waitlist number on your Family Account page will always be the waitlist number you were assigned during the lottery. To learn whether your spot on a waitlist has changed, please contact the school(s) at which you are waitlisted.
