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.
