Booker T. Washington Public Charter School was a 501c3 non-profit charter high school chartered by the District of Columbia Public Schools.It operated from 1999 to 2014

The Booker T. Washington Public Charter School opened for the 1999-2000 school year at 1346 Florida Avenue, NW. It was an academicall-oriented vocational school with a mission to educate students in grades 9-12 , as well as adults, for construction and building trades. When its 15 year charter was set to expire, it submitted an application for renewal, but in February 2014 the DC Public Charter School Board voted 5-0-1 to deny the renewal. " PCSB reviewed the school’s application and found that the school failed to meet its charter goals and academic achievement expectations." The charter expired June 30, 2014.[1]
