Family Engagement

Girls Prep Lower East Side believes that parent satisfaction and engagement are critical to the success of our students. With this in mind, family satisfaction and engagement is one of the five points on our North Star of College Completion.

To encourage family engagement, our school prioritizes:

      1. Frequent family communication, including annual home visits for all scholars and access to staff outside of the school day;

      2. Designated family support staff at Girls Prep LES Elementary School, and;

      3. A myriad of opportunities for meaningful family participation, including family-organized events and bi-monthly Unity Meetings.

Girls Prep LES Elementary School parents who are interested in playing an active role in governance at the school are on the Community Council, which functions similarly to a Parent Teacher Association. To learn more, visit our Community Council page.

Our work with families is paying off, as satisfaction scores from Girls Prep LES Elementary School parents on the 2012-13 parent survey exceeded averages from parent surveys throughout NYC on all survey points.
