DC Preppies are soaring academically, far outpacing their peers in other public schools, and putting us ever closer to bridging the educational divide in Washington.

DC Prep’s Results at a Glance

DC Prep's incredibly talented and dedicated team members have created a rigorous, stimulating, and joyful learning environment and it shows: Our students are thriving!

In August 2017, DC elected officials publicly released the citywide latest PARCC results and, comparatively speaking, we are excited to share that, for the sixth year running, DC Prep is the highest-performing network of public charter schools citywide! 

Network-wide, DC Prep as an LEA (or organization) has the highest combined ELA and Math proficiency (level 4+) for the economically disadvantaged subgroup citywide. In addition, Edgewood Middle Campus 8th grade has the highest proficiency rates on the ELA test and the Math grade 8 test in the city.

Our Preppies, their families, and our dedicated team members at each campus have done amazing work, and we have more hard work ahead to continue to ramp up the rigor in the years to come. Our goal remains to provide the very best education possible to students in Washington, DC.
