DC Prep's incredibly talented and dedicated teachers have created a rigorous, stimulating, and joyful learning environment and it shows: Our students are thriving!
DC Prep is the highest-performing Charter Management Organization in Washington, based on the results of the 2012 DC CAS.* DC Preppies in 3rd through 8th grade are dramatically outperforming their peers in other DC public schools.
Our Edgewood Middle Campus (EMC) remains the highest performing public charter middle school on the DC CAS citywide. This year, EMC also has the highest scores on the DC CAS general assessment of any public charter school in the city. Likewise, our Edgewood Elementary Campus (EEC) made big gains and is now the highest-performing elementary school east of Rock Creek Park.
- Third grade students at Edgewood Elementary moved from 65% proficient last year to 76% proficient this year in Reading, and from 60% proficient to 72% proficient in Math.
- Our middle schoolers continue to uphold their tradition of excellence, with 72% proficient in Reading, and 89% proficient in Math.
- And among all the data, what is perhaps most exciting is the progress of students who have been with DC Prep since prekindergarten. 83% of these DC Preppies scored proficient in Reading and 87% achieved proficiency in Math. These scores rival those at many Ward 3 elementary schools, showing that DC Prep truly is bridging the educational divide in Washington and changing the trajectory of its students’ lives.
