Girls Prep Lower East Side students and staff use the core values of sisterhood, merit, responsibility, and scholarship to guide their choices, education, and work at Girls Prep.
Students who exemplify the core values are selected by their classroom teachers and become "Stars of the Week." Stars of the Week show their achievement by wearing a ribbon, and they are acknowledged at bi-monthly Unity Meetings, where their exemplary demonstration of a particular core value is shared with the entire school.
Each Unity meeting is themed around a core value and is led by a class. Watch this video that the 2013 Zaha Hadid class put together on sisterhood for their Unity Meeting.
