Distance to School by Grade Band and Sector

Students attending their in-boundary DCPS school have the shortest walk distance between their home and school compared to other enrollment categories, regardless of grade level. Students in elementary grades travel practically the same median distances to DCPS out of boundary schools as to public charter schools (1.9 and 1.8 miles, respectively), while in the middle and high grades, students attending DCPS out of boundary schools had a longer median walk distance than public charter students.
