Thank you for your interest in Ross Elementary School. Before you begin the admissions process, please visit the Enrollment section of the District of Columbia Public Schools website to familiarize yourself with the process.

Is Ross your Neighborhood School?

You can verify whether or not Ross Elementary School is your Neighborhood School by typing in your address into the Boundary Information System.

How do I enroll at Ross?

If you are an in-boundary family and are enrolling a student in grades K-5, you do not need to enter the lottery. Complete the forms below and return to the Ross office.

If you are an out of boundary family, or enrolling in Pre-K 3 or Pre-K 4, you need to be admitted through the MySchool DC lottery. The lottery for the 2017-2018 school year has already closed.

If you are a returning Ross family, you need to complete the enrollment packet, including residency verification forms. Medical and dental forms can be turned in on the first day of school. Do not delay enrolling to wait for these forms. The expectation is for all returning students to be re-enrolled by June 1.

If you were admitted through the MySchool DC lottery, complete the forms below and return to the Ross office no later than May 1.
