Re: geographical proximity. It IS a big deal. There's no busing in DCPS elementary schools so you're going to be dropping off and picking up your kid every day.

I left it out, as I think it's going to be pretty well drilled into most parents by the time they hit DCPS. At this point, they've had 3-5 years of schlepping kids to nursery school, nanny share, or whatever their childcare arraignment was before that so school proximity will pretty high on their list already. Or they're like me; a stay at home parent. And I'm pretty sure no one needs to tell a stay at home parent much about the importance of physical proximity for kids!

Another thing to consider is not just the actual distance, but transportation in general. Can you drive to school and park on the street (i.e. in the same Ward)? Is there a metro stop or bus line nearby you use? Are there busy streets to cross? Is there a bikeshare nearby (not for the kid obviously, but I bikeshare while my kids ride their bikes)?
