Welcome to Public Prep!

Public Prep is a non-profit organization that develops and supports a tuition-free coed Pre-K pilot and single-sex elementary and middle public schools which pursue excellence through continuous learning and data-driven instruction. Our academic model is designed to empower each student to build strong character, demonstrate critical thinking, possess a core body of knowledge and be on a predictive path to a four-year university.

As of August 2014, we are comprised of three, tuition-free single-sex public charter schools and one tuition-free co-ed Pre-K that are open enrollment and can only be entered via a random lottery. Our schools include:

Girls Prep Lower East Side Elementary, the first all-girls charter school in New York City 
(Serving grades K-4)

Girls Prep Lower East Side Middle
(Serving grades 5-8)

Girls Prep Bronx Elementary
(Serving grades K-5)

Girls Prep Bronx Middle School
(Serving grade 6)
