Phelps Architecture, Construction, and Engineering High School
Teacher effectiveness: Somewhat effective

I encountered some very committed teachers at this school but also encountered those who lack compassion for students who may have trouble adjusting to the environment. In general, students who need extra support can forget it.

While the school certainly boasts a very strong curriculum for students who are interested in STEM related subjects, there is nothing being done to protect students from the violence in the area. The administration's response to violent attacks on students in and around the school building is to deflect responsibility rather than work to provide a safe environment for students, especially for those who participate in after school activities. If you are considering this school, you should also consider coordinating private transportation in the afternoons to ensure your child's safety.

So far this school ROCKS!!!! the Administration is very attentive & caring. Never judge a school by the neighborhood. I was hesitant considering the benning road area but based on presentation, professionalism, curriculum & overall demeanor of the students PHELPS far exceeds my expectations... Looking forward to a great experience!!!

Love it. My son transferred to this school from Orlando, FL. He was doing ok in Florida but not great. I was trying to figure out how I could get him into a private high school as I was terrified about what he may face in a DC Public School. My son is now flourishing under the total leadership at Phelps. Having some experience with private schools in the area, Phelps should be ranked among the best. Unless they change the leadership, my son will be back.
