Eastern Senior High School is pleased to enroll students in grades 9 through 12 into its rigorous, college preparatory program for the 2018 -2019 school year. Current 8th grade students living within Eastern’s boundary, or attending one of its feeder middle schools (Browne, Eliot-Hine, Jefferson, or Stuart-Hobson) are automatically guaranteed a seat in the 9th grade and must complete the annual DCPS enrollment packet. All students desiring membership in ACE, HMSA, or BUILD (read more about application programs below) must apply to their specific program of interest. There are a limited number of seats for out-of-boundary students at Eastern. Out-of-boundary students must gain admission to Eastern through the My School DC application. They are also encouraged to apply to one of our specialized programs so that they can take advantage of Eastern’s unique programming should they gain admission to Eastern through the My School DC lottery. We cannot offer out-of-boundary students a seat in any of our specialized programs until the results of the My School DC lottery have been released. In-boundary students must also apply in order to join any of our specialized programs.
