From our friends at Francis-Stevens PTA…Francis-Stevens is a PS-8 Education Campus located in Foggy Bottom/West-end of Dupont. One of the results of recent consolidation by DCPS is that Francis-Stevens will be merging with School Without Walls, an application-only public HS based near the campus of the George Washington University. Francis-Stevens PS-8 students will continue to occupy their current building and entry to Francis-Stevens will continue to be through DCPS’ PS/PK/OOB lottery. 70% of Francis-Stevens students come from OOB and the PTA hopes the school can continue to serve a citywide population.
