Find Your In-Boundary School

A student’s in-boundary school is based solely on the student’s home address. Every home address has an assigned elementary, middle, and high school. All students eligible for grades K-12 have a guaranteed right to enroll in their in-boundary school. To look up SY23-24 in-boundary schools, enter a student's current address in the address field below.

Many DCPS schools are part of a feeder pattern, meaning that when a student graduates from one school they have a right to enroll at the next school in the feeder pattern. A student’s feeder pattern is based on the school the child currently attends. DCPS students who will complete a transition grade (5th grade for elementary schools and 8th grade in education campuses and middle schools) in SY22-23 may have additional school rights for SY23-24 based on feeder patterns.

Note: On an ongoing basis, DCPS may update school boundaries and feeder patterns, grade configurations, school locations, and other details. For more information on school changes to be implemented in SY23-24, please see All changes that impact school boundary and feeder assignments for SY23-24 have been updated in the My School DC Lottery.
