Right-to-Attend Schools 

Bookmark and Share

A student’s right-to-attend school is a DCPS school where that student can enroll at any time. Students do not apply to their right-to-attend schools. There are two types of right-to-attend schools for K–12 students: in-boundary schools and feeder-pattern schools. Learn more about right-to-attend schools below.

In-Boundary (Neighborhood) Schools
A school assigned to a student based on his/her address. (Please note that students with special needs or limited-English may be assigned to a school other than their neighborhood school in order to better serve their needs).
