Girls Prep in Manhattan is the Greatest! My Daughter is learning to be a self assured, seeker of knowledge. She comes home with all that she has learned and uses those skills with our family. I am thankful for the focus on the person as well as the learning.
What can i say about girls prep I dont look at as a school I look at it as a community besides being a play that I feel safe leaving my child in the morning knowing that she is going to get the best education that she recieve she is exposed to the arts and or course her yoga class the the new all girls basketball team. But what about being ranked number 2 in the city for the ELA the up and coming events with the pta like picture day harvest feast and of course our thanksgiving feast I sure do have alot to be thankful for cause if it wasnt for girls prep I would be paying about 7,000 for my daughters education. Money that I dont have being a single parent. Girls Prep really is a excellent school and I love our community
This school helps and inspires girls be the best they can be. Each class is named after a famous successful woman that the girls could look up to.
I could not ask for a better learning environment for my dauaghter than at girls prep. My daughter shocks me everyday with the different things she has learned thus far. I only have one thing to say keep up the good work girls prep, as my daughter would say you rock!
Because its an all Girls Schools and I love their education and their core values, Sisterhood, Responsibility, Merit and Scholarship
The teachers at Girls Prep are dedicated and driven, they care about my daughter's education as much as I do. A wonderful learning environment for girls.
The administrators are competent and efficient; the teachers and other extracurricular instructors very qualified; and the teaching approach is geared toward the long haul--with the goal of seeing your daughter not only through Girls Prep but also preparing her for a Bachelor's degree--at least. A very happy parent.
Because it's only girls and they get very concentrate in their studies.They have excellent teachers in all subjects and yoga twice a week. They have math groups and reading groups to keep the students in the same level, which is great too! I'm very happy with Girls Prep Charter School!
My daughter has been attending GP since Kindergarten and we're hoping that the opening of our middle school leads to a high school as well. Girls Prep is a united community shared by parents, staff, and students alike along with a rigorous curriculum to satisfy the emotional, mental, and physical well being of every student. Students are taught traditional, conceptual and practical day to day concepts to help them develop a thorough understanding of the material presented. It's a very well rounded school and I have and will continue to recommend it to anyone. We are more than satisfied partaking in the GP community.
Girls Prep is a comunity I love. What I love about this school is that the girls have a sisterhood and the curriculum keeps them in a strive to keep doing their very best and it shows. I am glad I am part of the Girls Prep family and would not change it for the world.
I like Girls Prep because of its diversity, all girls no boys, my daughter has a chance to learn Spanish and understand the true meaning of the four core values: Merit, Sisterhood, Responsibility, Scholarship. In order to get an Orange which is the top color out of the other three colors, red: which means your not doing your best, yellow:keep on moving up, green: your doing your hardest, orange: just jump at the sun. The way to earn stars is to get on orange. This is what shows that your children are on the right track. Girls Prep is very strict about the girls diet, they make sure they eat only healthy foods/snacks. If a student has a snack that is not 100% it will not be allowed, and will be given a warning or maybe put in the trash if you were warned before. There is an opportunity for the girls to learn different cultures as well as their classes named after famous productive people like Mae Jemison, Zora Neal Hurston, Oprah Winfrey, Delores Huerta. That is one way to inspire the young girls to believe in themselves.
I have personally seen how the school works both inside and out. I am not a parent of this school but I highly recommend sending your daughter here! Only thing I wished is that the administration was more organized and well as verbal on what is going on in the school with all students/staff and parents alike. other than that they are GREAT! The teachers have a great heart and the programs they offer and just wonderful.
My daughter will be going into her 3rd yr fall 08 at girls prep. She loves it and so do I. The teachers are very ethusiastic about teaching and knowing the girls and their families. The girls are all being taught well above average they are diciplined and being shown the benefits of siterhood, merit and respect. Main con is overcrowded class.
This school is wonderful. My daughters are 2nd and 3rd grades there and they love it. Y 3rd grader is taking spanish and she loves it . Aside from gym the girls are also taking up yoga. When they started they had a hard time reading but now they just loves book and are both very good readers.
