The DCPS annual lottery results were announced last week, and they show that the spike in interest of Georgetown families in Hyde continues. As discussed here, Georgetown children who are interested in attending Hyde for pre-K need to go through the lottery (for Kindergarten and above a spot if guaranteed for all neighborhood kids).
Last year, Hyde had 19 slots for pre-K (i.e. for the ’11-’12 school year). And 21 Georgetown kids applied for those slots. This year Hyde is again offering 19 slots for pre-K. And 33 kids applied for those slots. 33!
This is a huge testament to the great job Dana Nerenberg and her staff are doing for Hyde’s kids; the word is clearly out. This success may bring new challenges in terms of class size management but GM doesn’t doubt the school is up to the task.
