About 2020-2021 Lottery Results

DC Public Schools continues to see high demand from families living in all eight wards, with a similar number of students applying through the lottery and matching as in 2019-2020. Lottery results by school and grade are available below.  These results reflect applications from students and families for pre-kindergarten programs (PK3 and PK4) and for K-12 seats in citywide, selective, out-of-boundary, and other schools beyond a student’s school of right. Students and families do not need to submit a lottery application in order to attend their in-boundary school (K-12), to re-enroll in their current school, or to enroll in a geographic or programmatic feeder school
