Public schools are meh esp considering how great the Nova schools are. Great private schools (Sidwell, GDS, WIS) but both nova and md have good private schools.

KPMG 1, not sure what ranking you’re talking about but TJ consistently wins multiple ISEF categories, has extracurricular collaborations with top 10 colleges, and offers college-level classes (Linalg, orgo, diffeq), on top of the fact that the students are all very competent and driven, which cannot be said about every student in a private school

Private schools are some of the best in the nation but public schools are below average which is so sad

The only regularly zoned public high school in DC worth considering is Wilson. All the rest are utter shit.

Most school rating websites, including Niche, have flaws that reward minimal diversity, including English as a second language learners, rather than education quality for students who are not disadvantaged.

Wilson is supposed to be pretty good.
