Our MissionOur Mission

People’s Prep prepares all of our students to graduate from the college of their choice as informed, involved and resilient citizens.

Our Vision

People’s Prep will break cycles of unequal education, inadequate opportunity and poverty.‚Äč

Our Approach

Because on average a majority of Newark’s incoming ninth grade students are not proficient in English Language Arts and Math, People’s Preparatory Charter School will provide an longer school day and year so that students have more time to learn. Longer hours will also help prepare students for college-level work. In total, People’s Preparatory Charter School will provide students with an average of 22 more school days a year than district counterparts.
