Harlem Prep Middle School

To satisfy insistent demand for an excellent middle school in East Harlem, Democracy Prep sought permission to expand the Harlem Prep turnaround charter to include Grades 6 through 8. With the SUNY Charter Schools Institute having approved this request, Harlem Prep Charter Middle School opened its doors in Fall 2012 to ensure that Harlem Prep's scholars were able to continue progressing on the path to success in college and citizenship upon completion of Grade 5.  Harlem Prep 2013-2014 school year will have Grades 6 and 7 eventually expanding to Grade 8 for the 2014-2015 school year. Drawing on deep reserves of grit, scholars will grapple daily with Harlem Prep's rigorous college-prep curriculum and will continue to work hard so that they will go to college and change the world!

Rather than being
an up and out model
where scholars succeed
by going to college
but then leave their communities
and their neighborhoods,
we want success to resonate with
our scholars returning
to their communities
and making their world
a better place.

Chief Executive Officer
