West Capital Improvement and Modernization

Efforts for West's modernization kicked off with a great meeting. Download the slide presentation in PDF format. Stay informed about project updates through our DCPS Modernization Website.

On October 11, 2017, the purchase of the Kingsbury site (across 14th Street from West) by Latin American Montessori Bilingual Public Charter School (LAMB) was discussed at the monthly ANC meeting at Petworth Library. Members of our Parent, Staff, Community Organization (PSCO) prepared a statement that was read into the record. View the statement here >>

Water Testing at West

Per District of Columbia law, all drinking water sources must test below 5 ppb (parts per billion), which is the standard to which the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates bottled water. DCPS is pleased to share that all of the drinking water sources sampled this year within West EC tested below 5 ppb.  View the sampling results here >>

2016-2017 Annual Report

Each school day is a new opportunity for our students to learn and grow. We all have a role to play in ensuring students get to school, ready to learn, and understand that #EveryDayCounts. Go to to learn more. Please note: We only are able to excuse absences from school for illness and bereavement; any other absence is considered unexcused. All parent notes to excuse illness must be submitted within seven days of the absence. Attendance notes (early dismissal or absence) may be sent by email to and or brought directly to the Main Office. If a scholar accumulates five unexcused absences, then we will schedule an attendance conference to review attendance policies and to see if we can support attendance challenges in any way. Also, all scholars should arrive at school between 8:30 AM and 8:45 AM (unless they are registered for Before Care.) Any scholar arriving at school after 8:45 AM will be required to sign in and receive a tardy slip before reporting to class. We look forward to greeting scholars at 8:30 AM every morning. Thank you for supporting regular school attendance. Every minute at school counts!
