Public School Facility Programmatic Capacity

Programmatic capacity reflects the maximum number of students that can be housed in a school building. Total public school capacity largely mirrors the number of facilities located in the neighborhood cluster – more facilities usually equates to more seats. As of SY18-19, Congress Heights (Cluster 39), Columbia Heights and Mt. Pleasant (Cluster 2), Edgewood and Bloomingdale (Cluster 21), and Crestwood and Petworth (Cluster 18) had the most total seats. Friendship Heights (Cluster 11) also had a large number of DCPS seats.

- Capacity listed is for the entire facility, not only for the grade bands selected. See the downloadable dataset 
  for more information on which schools fall under each grade band.
- Capacities for DCPS schools that are swinging due to modernization are not reported.
