Democracy Prep Charter Middle School

Democracy Prep Charter School first opened its doors in August 2006 and currently educates scholars in Grades 6 through 8. On account of the tremendous growth scholars have demonstrated each year, Democracy Prep Charter School was ranked the number one public middle school and the number one charter school in the entire city on the 2010 Chancellor’s Progress Report. Upon completion of 8th Grade, scholars transition to Democracy Prep Charter High School where they continue on their paths to success in college and citizenship.
