Thurgood Marshall Academy Public Charter High School

Thurgood Marshall Academy Public Charter High School is this year’s highest performing non-selective high school in Washington, D.C.

One hundred percent of the 2013 graduating class received scholarships and financial aid, and the school has a 100 percent college acceptance rate since 2005. Eighty-seven percent of the students who have graduated since 2012 are still in college.

These students are no stranger to prestigious scholarships either. Collectively, students  have amassed 221 Gates Millennium Scholars scholarships, four Stephen J. Trachtenberg scholarships to George Washington University, and four Posse Scholars scholarships.

In 2013, the academy’s students scored over 50 percentage points higher than neighboring schools in tests designed to measure academic proficiency.
