About Public Prep
Public Prep is the nation’s first non-profit network that exclusively develops exceptional, tuition-free PreK and single-sex elementary and middle public schools. We pursue continuous excellence through our dedication to an inclusive community focused on scholar, family, and staff collaboration. Our scholars are resilient and empathetic, guided by our four core values of community (sisterhood/brotherhood), scholarship, responsibility, and merit. Our teaching model is designed to incorporate a culturally responsive approach that is informed by data to cultivate an environment that empowers scholars to become independent learners. At Public Prep we believe zip code should not define your destiny, systemic and institutional racism must be disrupted and that all scholars should be on a predictable path to and through college.
Our network comprises 6 schools across 5 campuses in the Lower East Side and Bronx, serving 2,100 scholars in grades PreK-8:
Girls Prep Bronx Elementary School (Grades Pre-K-5)
Girls Prep Bronx Elementary School II (Grades Pre-K-1)
Girls Prep Bronx Middle School (Grades 6-8)
Girls Prep Lower East Side Elementary School (Grades PreK-4)
Girls Prep Lower East Side Middle School (Grades 5-8)

What Sets Us Apart
In addition to the academic work, Public Prep emphasizes social-emotional learning as critical to supporting the whole child. Relationship-building is the lever that moves adults to move students and that moves families to invest time and energy in schools. Each school has a committed leadership team and staff that strives to work collaboratively to build a warm, joyful culture of rigor. Public Prep is committed to investing in our adult learning culture. As a team member at Public Prep you can anticipate a learning environment where growth mindset, humility and data informed decision making is evident through professional development that takes place within coaching cycles, observation and feedback, and targeted professional development opportunities within the network and from outside providers.
In 2020, all of our campuses were recognized by NYS as Recognition Schools for their high academic achievement and strong progress. Board of Regents Chancellor Betty Rosa described them as “exemplary public schools that demonstrate that all students can achieve at high levels with the right supports and resources.” This honor has been bestowed upon the top 15% of schools in New York State.
