73% of Students in DC's 20008 Zip Code Attend Private School: Figure 1

A recent Trulia study analyzed where private school enrollment is highest and lowest in the U.S., and one DC zip code was near the top of the list.

20008, the zip code surrounding Connecticut Avenue that includes portions of Forest Hills, Van Ness, Cleveland Park, Woodley Park, and Kalorama, has a private school enrollment of 73 percent. That percentage puts it just outside the five areas with the highest private school enrollment in the country. See full list below.

As far as other DC zip codes where a high percentage of kids attend private school, the list is fairly predictable:

  • 20007 — Burleith, Glover Park, Foxhall, Georgetown — 68 percent
  • 20015 — Chevy Chase DC, Friendship Heights, Barnaby Woods — 56 percent
  • 20016 — Cathedral Heights, Palisades, AU Park, Spring Valley, Tenleytown — 50 percent

The post outlining the Trulia analysis is quite interesting, and includes tidbits such as the fact that home prices in top-rated school districts are 32 percent higher than the local average.
