Our School: ParentsAt People’s Prep, we strongly believe that family involvement and support are key factors in student success. Therefore, we strive to cultivate positive and productive relationships with the families of all of our students. In turn, we encourage and expect parents and guardians to be active partners in their children’s education.

What does this family-school partnership look like? It includes:

  • Attending an August orientation session for students, families and teachers
  • Attending ​four​ report card conferences per year
  • Attending school-wide celebrations of learning, performances and events
  • Taking part in regular teacher-family phone calls
  • Participating in ​Parent Council
  • Attending parent training sessions hosted by The Office of College Placement.

It’s true – we expect families to go the extra mile. In return, familes receive the satisfaction of taking an active role in their students’ education, and becoming an integral part of the People’s Prep community.

Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act

Beginning with the September 2011-2012 school year, our school district/school has conscientiously implemented the requirements found in the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act. During the first two years of implementation of the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act, our school district/school has made progress in addressing and improving harassment, intimidation and bullying and the school climate and culture by utilizing the Self-Assessment to develop our district’s HIB prevention and intervention programs, and strengthen policies and practices.
