District of Columbia International School
4 Best Public Middle Schools in District of Columbia
- Public School
- Washington, DC
Freshman: The immersion is great, and academics are more than satisfactory. The tier-one school makes college application an easier process by exposing the students to colleges and information early on, however, the actual work for underclass high school students is not hard enough to prepare for college. The 11th grade IB diploma program gets complex and time consuming without much preparation, which startles the students at first. After some time, it does get the students ready for a greater workload and professional environment with high expectations.

Alice Deal Middle School
9 Best Public Middle Schools in District of Columbia
- District of Columbia Public Schools, DC
Freshman: At Deal I was able to take part in many activities. I was able to take part in a club called Geo plunge and I was able to learn about the size, population, and state history . Then twice a year we go to a tournament and compete against other schools. I was also able to take part in a club called Girl Up. Girl Up is a organization that is apart of the UN. In the club we raised money to help girls around the world. This past year the UN used the money to buy bikes. The bikes are used to help girls get to their schools. While at Deal I took part in many sports. My coaches were experienced and were into and dedicated to helping every player develop into a better student and athlete. My teachers were strict and fun. They made sure everyone understood the material before moving on. Before we have standardized test they go back over lessons and reteach it, so that we don't forget.
