Lee Montessori earns Tier 1 status two years in a row

We are excited to share that for the second year in a row, Lee Montessori -- Brookland earned Tier 1 status from the DC Public Charter School Board. We are thrilled that our performance puts us in the highest rating for public charter schools in DC. See full results here.

The DC Public Charter School Board bases its School Quality Reports on student academic improvement and achievement, teacher support, student attendance, re-enrollment, and more. We were especially pleased to see outstanding student progress in English Language Arts, increased observations of emotional and instructional support by teachers, and improved attendance.

This report is not our only measurement of success. It is difficult to measure the joy we see in our students every day when they overcome a challenge by themselves, or the excitement at the Fall Festival when hundreds of members of our vibrant community join together (and in such fantastic costumes!). Still, it provides a helpful format for families and stakeholders and shows we are achieving strong outcomes from PreK3 through 6th grade.

Thank you to our staff, families, and supporters for your efforts to support our students’ educational success. Whether you are a parent who makes sure their children get to school every day and on time, or a staff member who devotes every day to helping each individual student succeed, your actions make a difference for the 311 children at Brookland and East End. It truly takes all of us working together to guide our children on their journeys to becoming independent, lifelong learners.
