You Belong Here

As someone who’s been in education for some time, civic education is not something that I have seen in the classroom, especially as early as elementary school. It is incredibly important for scholars to receive that exposure to civics at such a young age because it shows them that their voice matters in a very deep way.

Bryan Stroud, Principal

I am grateful for the ability to teach generations of families and watch as sibling after sibling enters my classroom and leaves with a new found understanding of self and community.

Kristan Justice, Director of Special Education Instructional Systems

I am incredibly grateful for the alumni that continue to return to Democracy Prep as teachers, Ops members, college counselors, teaching residents, and other positions. I can think of no greater statement of our impact than those folks who choose to give back to their community in this specific way.
