Anacostia High School serves students from the Ward 8 community. Our modernization was completed in 2014, providing the community with facilities to house academic programs focused on preparing students for college and career readiness. We incorporated the ASPIRE enrichment block into the schedule to provide students with academic interventions, character education, and an opportunity to participate in the performing arts. Our athletics department provides a wide range of offerings for scholars and is an integral part of the school community. The girls basketball and cheerleading programs remain among the city's best, both winning championships in the past two seasons. At Anacostia High School, we strongly encourage students to participate in athletics and after-school programs to bolster college applications.
