I graduated in 1996 and grew up in the housing projects across the street. Cardozo had a lot of problems back then, but now the area is gentrified, and the school has been renovated. There is a new principal and new programs. I wish we had that. I am happy for the new students. It's such a beautiful school.
I graduated in 2009 from Cardozo I am a proud clerk, I am currently a graduate student. I would like to say that Cardozo has contributed a great deal to my education. My time there was filled with positive experiences some not so good things had happened but the good out weighed the bad. we had a great basketball team, the transtech program was awsome as well as the AP literature classes . The staff truly care about the students, I would strongly recommend this school.

I am a 1969 Graduate of Cardozo and I'm surprised that the reputation continues to be negative. Cardozo has had it's ups and downs and it has managed to survive. I always thought Cardozo was a great school and while there were some that would not represent the school well as a student or faculty, the spirit of the school is as strong as any. Your returns are balanced against your investments. I know many Alumni that have gone on to great achievements ( myself included) and I'm positive that the spirit of the schools faculty and students is a s strong as ever. We will continue to grow and we must continue weeding the garden.
I think Cardozo is and still is the perfect school. I rate this school 4 stars.
I think that many people in Washington DC they just have a bad images of Cardozo just becouse the past but they don't know that Cardozo is becoming a good school with a lot of opportunity for all the student with academies such as transtech, and construction.
As a former Cardozo student and graduate (6th in my class), Cardozo certainly fostered a sense of accomplishment both academically and personally. There is a definite correlation between ones effort and the end result. I invested %100 percent of my effort in my education and in return received scholarships, accolades and life long relationship with teachers and peers and am a graduate of the illustrious Howard University. As with anything in life, you get out of it what you've invested.
I believe Cardozo HS in D.C. is a very good school because despite the stereotypical negative image some may have of the school (which is not true), it has excellent teachers available for students who want to succeed. I graduated from Cardozo and was able to go to the University of Virginia, with the help of my great teachers. Overall, I think this school matches the students with teachers who truly care and encourage students to overcome any obstacles.
There are some great, dedicated teachers there, but some horrible ones that should be long gone. The new Principal is an improvement, but some other administrators are terrible. Standards are too low. Students get too many days off for teacher meetings and training. The building is falling apart. Extra cirriculars are there but are inconsistent, depending on who is leading them. Parent involvement is very low, but the Principal is now trying to form a PTA to her credit.
People really underestimate Cardozo. It is hyped up in all the bad news but a student's educational and life experience as a human being is well developed.
