Who we are
Our vision for
4301 Harewood Street NE

Washington Latin Public Charter Schools and  Washington Yu Ying Public Charter School have partnered to purchase the site at 4301 Harewood Road NE in Ward 5, formerly the Kirov Academy of Ballet. We purchased the property in September 2022 and are working to reimagine the site as a public school campus that will provide a high-quality education from Pre-K through high school.

Washington Yu Ying @ Harewood

Washington Yu Ying PCS will operate our PK3 – K classes at the new site, expanding our enrollment capacity in these grades to serve more families, and continue to serve Grades 1-5 at our 200 Taylor St NE location just around the corner. 

Washington Latin @ Harewood

Washington Latin PCS will relocate our Anna Julia Cooper Campus from 711 Edgewood St NE to the new site and will serve Grades 5-12. We will also continue to serve Grades 5-12 at our 2nd Street location (5200 2nd St NW) in Ward 4.

Why Ward 5?

Choosing to grow in Ward 5 is intentional – we genuinely value our vibrant and diverse community. In addition to building a school campus, we are greatly invested in learning and hearing from our Ward 5 neighbors as to how the space can serve a role for the community.

Join a virtual Town Hall!

Our next Town Hall will be on Wednesday, February 21 at 7:00 pm. Join us to learn more and ask questions about the project. We will share key information with community stakeholders about the design and construction process.
