Fight For Children’s Quality Schools Initiative encourages replication of high quality programs that improve student achievement in public, charter, and independent schools in DC. School Night will celebrate Fight For Children’s 2009 Champions of Quality – Capital City Public Charter School, Bell Multicultural High School, and The Washington Middle School for Girls.
