One of the biggest problems was quality of scale and getting people on board with a new system. We don't really have an answer for how to solve it yet, because we are still in the process of changing, but it's vital to have good administration and the support of both teachers and parents. Also, it's important to make sure that key players understand the benefit of the change and that they are backing you in your efforts.
John H. Ketcham Elementary School is located in Historic Anacostia. We are proud of our rich history and our strong group of dedicated community partners, staff, and parents, all of whom work with our scholars to enrich their lives. We strive to ensure that each scholar develops academically and socially and we seek to equip scholars with the skills needed to be successful in higher education and in a global society. Our motto at Ketcham Elementary School is 'Our Students. Our Future. Our Responsibility.'

In 2013-2014 Washington, D.C. used the District of Columbia Comprehensive Assessment System (DC-CAS) to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8 and 10, science in grades 5, 8, and 10, and composition in grades 4, 7, and 10. Currently GreatSchools is displaying results for reading and math only. The DC-CAS is a standards-based testing program, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the District of Columbia. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
