waitlists will indicate demand to some extent, but it's a low hurdle to gain a waitlist spot (1 application, 6 choices), and the popular schools develop big ones, especially for early childhood space. You should also note that for DCPS, a long waitlist without an inbound address, or other priority like sibs or proximity, will have virtually zero chance of gaining space in Ward 3 schools. In researching schools, it's worth getting a realistic pulse of the space availability up front, which allows parents to prioritize choices. Talk to principal or parents at schools of interest, don't just read DCPS published results from last year's lottery.
