Each year, we evaluate the academic performance of every public charter school in Washington, DC. These evaluations are compiled into School Quality Reports, which are used to rate schools into Tiers 1, 2 or 3, with 1 being the best. See this table for outcomes of schools rated Tier 3: data. See this table for a list of all school closures here.
