What our Leaders are Saying

“One of my most memorable moments at DC Prep was talking with the mother of a Preppie and hearing that as his preschool teacher I had, ‘changed the trajectory of her son's life’. This quote sticks with me every day.”
Sheneil Christian, Founding Resident Principal (Upcoming Elementary Campus)
