25 Aug news 0 Uncategorized

On Thursday, August 24, 2017, at Stuart-Hobson Middle School, Mayor Bowser highlighted the District’s new investments in middle schools and celebrated the academic achievement of DC Public Schools. Going into the new school year, the Mayor’s increased investments will support additional extracurricular offerings, athletics, algebra, and other STEM courses in all DCPS middle schools. The Mayor was joined by Deputy Mayor for Education Jennifer Niles, and DCPS Chancellor Antwan Wilson.

“We are transforming the middle school experience in Washington, DC because every student deserves to have high-quality academic and extracurricular experiences,” said Mayor Bowser. “By making our schools places where students not only learn and grow academically, but also socially and emotionally, we are going to set more students up for success in school and in life. Our goal is for all students to think of school not just as a place they have to go, but a place they love to go.”
