Where the most CREATIVE, PASSIONATE, and BRIGHTEST scholar is always a GIRL!
Our unique approach places equal emphasis on character development, college knowledge, and academic excellence through an integrated curriculum to ensure all of our students are on a path to our North Star to College Completion and beyond. Our schools establish a culture of joy weaved in with the expectation of learning and critical thinking. Scholars are recognized for academic achievement in equal measures to their representation of our core values.
Girls Prep is a very nurturing and organized environment where the scholars can really learn and thrive. -Janette, Girls Prep Bronx Parent
WELCOME FROM THE PRINCIPAL
Dear Girls Prep Bronx Elementary and PrePrep Community,
On August 31st, 2009 Girls Prep Bronx opened its doors for the first time. What started as a handful of classrooms has blossomed into a pre-K to 8th grade school with nearly 900 students (and thousands on a wait list). Parents and educators came together because they believed in an educational community that was loving, joyful, had rigorous academic standards and set high expectations. These adults came together because they believed every child was capable of extraordinary things and no geographical boundaries or zip codes should dictate one’s life outcomes.
As we open our doors to families for the 11th year we continue to carry this torch of excellence for our community. We have spent the past three weeks talking about our vision, learning about our community, engaging families, honoring all students (all the time), being an inclusive community and preparing ourselves as best as we can to continue the legacy of Girls Prep Bronx. We have set a high standard for ourselves and I am confident we are ready to meet it.
I am incredibly proud and honored to be part of this community with you. When you have a group of educators who share a common vision, are courageous, go above and beyond in preparation and ultimately love all children all the time, extraordinary things can happen. I am so excited to stand at your side and to make our vision come to life in 2019-2020.
Principal, Girls Prep Bronx Elementary
