DC Prep Campuses Earn Tier 1 Rankings on 2018 School Quality Reports

October 31 2018 | School News

Today, the DC Public Charter School Board (PCSB) released their 2018 School Quality Reports, which offer a comprehensive overview of public charter schools in the city. DC Prep is thrilled to share that all five schools in our network earned Tier 1 rankings, the highest rating for all public charter schools in the city.

“We are proud of our Tier 1 rankings, as we believe they are a testament to the intelligence and hard work of our students, the support and dedication of our families, and the knowledge and effort of each of our teachers and staff,” said Laura Maestas, incoming CEO of DC Prep.

The PCSB measures a charter school’s performance on a variety of indicators including test scores, attendance, and re-enrollment rates, among others – and serve as a resource for families. School Quality Reports score each school between 0-100, placing the school in one of three performance tiers. Tier 1 are top-performing schools, Tier 2 are mid-performing, and Tier 3 are low-performing.

What our Leaders are Saying

“Growing up in Washington, I was outraged by the disparity in opportunities among children living 15 minutes away from each other. Founding DC Prep was the best thing I could think of doing to address this terrible inequity.”
