In 2005, a group of public school parents reached out to each other to achieve common goals.  With the idea that there is power in numbers, these parents agreed to work together to make improvements in their neighborhood schools.

At the first meeting of what is now known as the Ward 6 Public Schools Parent Organization (W6PSPO), it quickly became clear that there was much to learn from each other, as well as many shared issues and concerns.

Parents and principals have continued to meet monthly since 2005, and work together to strengthen the public schools on Capitol Hill.

Our Mission

To promote cooperation among the parent organizations of the public schools in Ward 6 in order to improve the education received by all children attending our schools.

Parent Involvement

The W6PSPO believes student achievement is enhanced when parents are involved.  Working with the principals, the W6PSPO is supporting efforts of its member schools to apply to the National PTA for certification as a Parent Involvement School of Excellence.  To date, the Capitol Hill Cluster School has received the certification.

About our Logo…

Our logo was designed by professional photographer, artist, entrepreneur and Capitol Hill DCPS parent Amanda McClean (www.amandamcclean.com).

The logo is based on Architectural drawing of 600 block of East Capitol street DC courtesy of HABS, Drawn by Jeff Berei, Lee LeFrancois, and Mary Ann Morris 1989.  Amanda discovered the drawing in a Capitol Hill Restoration Society (CHRS) (www.chrs.org) publication called “Building Styles in the Capitol Hill Historic District”.
