Celebrated as a 2020-2021 Microsoft Showcase School, Garfield Preparatory ES is the first of three globally recognized schools in DC Public Schools. We are now in the Incubator path of the Showcase School program. We envision delivering a blended learning and inquiry-based instructional program which deliberately includes and values all students in order to meet their unique learning needs while developing their understanding and respect of difference.

What is a programmatic feeder pattern? Programmatic feeder pattern schools/programs are organized by a specialized program of study (such as Dual Language). A programmatic feeder pattern provides the right for a student enrolled in a specialized school/program to enroll in the next level school within the specialized course of study as they transition into middle school or high school.

FAQs may include the below and reach out to the DCPS Enrollment Team if you need help answering any FAQs:

1. What is my student’s destination school?

2. Do I have to apply to my student’s destination school?

3. I enrolled my student as in-boundary but have since moved out-of-boundary. What is my student’s destination school?
