Thank you for your interest in Thomson!  We have a great school community and offer a challenging and rigorous academic program.  


Families interested in enrolling a child in PS/PK must meet the eligibility requirement for age and complete an on-line application at MySchoolDC.org.  PS/PK attendance is not compulsory in DC, and DCPS does not guarantee seats in schools for all students.  All students, in-bound or out-of-bound, must enter the lottery to obtain a seat at Thomson.  


For K-5th grade, families that are in-boundary may choose to send their child to Thomson at any time during the school year.  In-boundary students are guaranteed placement in K-5th grade.  A child must be 5 years old on or before September 30th to enter Kindergarten.


You can identify your in-boundary school at MySchoolDC by searching your home address on School Finder.

Open House

To enroll in Thomson, you must submit a common application through MySchoolDC.org.  The deadline for PK-5th applications for the 2019-2020 school year has passed. 


To learn more about our academic and program offerings and to meet our dedicated team of educators, Thomson is offering a number of open house dates -- please return to this site in November 2019 for a list of dates. 


We welcome you to our school community!
