A local education agency (LEA) is an organization that operates publicly funded schools. In DC, our LEAs include DC Public Schools (DCPS) and more than 60 charter organizations.

Star Rating

The School Transparency and Reporting (STAR) Framework is DC's school accountability system. Each school receives a rating of 1 to 5 stars, with 5 being the highest, based on its performance across multiple metrics. Not Applicable means the school did not meet the minimum population size to generate a score or was not in operation during the previous school year.

Our vision is for Bancroft to be a diverse and vibrant community of learners preparing all students to be high-achieving, bilingual global citizens who lead in the 21st century. We are committed to ensuring all our students achieve at high levels through a rigorous dual language program which promotes biliteracy and bilingualism
