All families are invited to Brent’s Middle School Information Night, this Wednesday, 1/8 from 6-7:30pm. DCPS middle schools will include Eliot-Hine, Jefferson and Stuart-Hobson, alongside charter schools Washington Latin, BASIS and Two Rivers, and Capitol Hill Day School, an independent school.

The evening will consist of a moderated panel discussion and informal school presentations. The goal is to provide Brent families with as much relevant information as possible when making their middle school decisions.

I look forward to seeing everyone Wednesday evening.
