• Garrison has been named a Bold Performance School for the past three years by EmpowerK12 for our PARCC growth, especially among our learners designated as "at-risk".
• We are among the most diverse schools in DC, a source of strength as we work to ensure that every child thrives.
• Our teachers serve as "lab site" hosts and coaches to leaders from across the district who study our structured literacy teaching practices, which have led to DCPS' highest K-1 literacy growth in recent years.
