All students deserve great schools. Since 2011, People’s Prep has successfully provided a high-performing, college-preparatory high school for Newark students and their families. Our students demonstrate a marked improvement in standardized testing, school attendance, and a broad range of academic and non-academic measures. Our school is committed to facing every challenge along this path and to working alongside our students and families to meet them.
We never give up. We do whatever it takes. We find another way.
We understand and serve the needs and feelings of others. We listen first and welcome differences of opinion. We support our teammates.
We set ambitious goals. We focus on results. We make each other better.
We are eager to learn. We explore new things. We ask questions that deepen our understanding.
We embrace our mistakes because we always have room to grow.We relentlessly seek feedback. We are grateful for our opportunities and our advantages.
We choose to stay positive. We invigorate others. We go all in, all the time.
"Often times, we let our bad decisions define our next move...Our students’ response is 'I’m not there yet.'" - Keith Robinson, Principal and Co-Director
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.
