“They don’t take their foot off the gas ... No one expects kids from the inner city to go do great things. No one really believed in us until that one person did and gave us exactly what we needed.” We’re excited to share NJ.com’s six-week project highlighting our recent graduates and the approach of People’s Prep.
We are proud to serve diverse learners. Our students come from a wide range of educational backgrounds and live our core values to guide their actions and motivate their decisions. Our students are athletes, artists, and budding scholars.
Since 2011, our school has been working to ensure that a child's zip code does not have to dictate their future. Our mission is to prepare all of our students to graduate from the college of their choice as informed, involved, and resilient citizens.
Our students achieve at such high levels, in large part, because of their teachers, counselors, and advisors. We recruit, train, and retain the best-of-the-best because our students require and deserve the country's hardest working and highest achieving professionals.
Choosing your high school is a big step on your journey to college graduation. People’s Prep believes that all students should have the option of a college preparatory program.
