"Look at the test scores" please bare in mind that Common Core testing was put in effect in 2013 which made the test much more harder, and lower percentages of passing is to be expected however Girls Prep still beat out most of New York STATE. Just keep that in mind please :)
I love this school and feel the people who say bad things about it don't know anything about the school at all I do my child goes here and what she learn.Is amazon What she learn and how to work with other is amazon All I have to say is before you say anything bad about this School you need to learn about it first before you say anything!!!
A place where our daughters are not only taught academically but they are also taught the core values of scholarship, merit, community, and responsibility. Not only are they taught these values they are enforced daily and our daughters carry them with them every day and where where.
Love this school ... My daughter has been attending GP since k and I have nothing but good things to say about not just academically the teachers and staff are also great so involved and attentive during and after the school year...
My daughter has been at Girls Prep since kindergarten and she will now being entering 5th grade Girls Prep Middle School. This school has help to get and keep my daughter where she needs to be academically.
Great school that offers great opportunities for young ladies to strive. My daughter is entering 8th grade this year and I am confident with the help of girls prep I'm sure my daughter will excel in high school and beyond.
My daughter is going to 7th graded and has been in GP since Kindergarten. GP is a great school with teachers who care and want the best for the girls. Besides academics the girls are instilled with the knowledge that they can be anything they want to be and being a girl/women should not hinder their aspirations.
Girls Preparatory Charter School of New York (elementary) is an excellent school. My daughter is entering her fourth year and the education she has received thus far is second to none. The language she uses far exceeds her years, her test scores are excellent and the pride she exudes from being a young "woman" in this day and age and part of this community is fantastic. The teachers and administration are young and excited to teach which makes going to school fun and learning easy for the students. Students are assessed CONSTANTLY and the support they receive, whether to help them advance beyond their grade level or help in keeping up, is awesome. Parent involvement is greatly encouraged. From monthly parent leadership meetings, Unity meetings (pep rally's where students receive ribbons and certificates) and invitations to come into the classrooms and either witness what our daughter is learning or invitations to come and speak with the students about our families traditions, favorite books, careers and much more. This school was an excellent choice for our family. I couldn't be happier.
Girls Prep strives for our young ladies to be college bound ready and be the best they can be in the future.
Girls Preparatory charter school is a Great school for young ladies to become inspiring woman of the future. I also like that they encourage the girls to be smart, powerful and successful.
Scholarship . Merit . Responsibility and Sisterhood Thats what girls prep elemantry is all about! We love this school!
This is my daughter's first year at Girls Prep. I have read some really discouraging comments but I am extremely happy at the results I have seen. Girls Prep opened their doors to my daughter's learning disorder and jumped right in to offer all support necessary. The teaches, the staff everyone has been great. She is now reading and writing and enjoying school. Girls Prep has made the difference.
girls prep is a great, safe environment to learn and challenge yourself everyday through academics while having fun.
I am a student here and I have been going here since the beginning. I think the people who talk bad and disrespect this school are completely mistaken, this school is a great one. I have been accommodated for all of my needs, whether it be advanced classes, extra help, or time off, and all of the staff here are always ready to help. I always ask my teachers "What made you pick up teaching" and they always answer "I love it, I wouldn't have it any other way" in their eyes is so much sincerity that it makes me happy. I am going to Phillips Exeter in the fall and that just goes to show how much of a push this school has been for me. Most girls got into their first choice for the applications process, and I am a girl that got into her first independent boarding school choice, on a full scholarship plus money for electronics, transportation, and other necessities. Don't even think about giving this school a bad grade, take it from someone who has been through it and came out swinging. Although I have had a supplement program, TEAK, help me through the process, Girls Prep gives rigorous education and puts your daughter in an environment where her teachers are charismatic, fun, and ready!
This is school is great. The teachers in the school will help you, when you need help in the help. The school keeps upgrades like your grades, and other things. When your in this school, you feel like this could be your home. Teachers and counselors in this school are always here, whenever you need them.
I am honored to say that I am a 8th grade student at Girls Prep. Girls Prep was a great help when it came to the high school administration process. Any questions I had was always answered. This school helped me get into my second choice of high school which I am very happy with. Thank you so much Girls Prep.
Girls prep gives scholars a rigorous education and the tools they need to succeed. I have been accepted to one of the top catholic in the city, as well as the Midwood humanities program in Brooklyn. Without Girls preps teachers and staff I would have gotten nowhere. TThey are sincere and they are at Girls Prep because they want to be not because they have to. Girls Prep is my second family I am sad to go.
This has helped me EXTREMELY! From when I first came to this school which was in 2005 to now 2013. I would not be the person I am today if it wasn't for Girls prep. They have exposed me to so many great oppurtunities that have really help me become a better person. Although I have had my highs and lows, it will never compare to the great experince and sisterhood I have gotten from my teachers and my classmates here. Girls prep made it easy for me to get into the high school I wanted and I am very appreciative of that. This school is a true place for a girl living in New York City. It has so much to offer it is sometimes overwhelming, from the amount of support from the teachers and the counselor, to the hundreds of girls willing to lend a helping hand to each other. I am grateful for so many things that has come from girls prep and I am a little upset because I have been coming here for 8 years and honestly I think that I will really won't get the same experince I got for Girls prep. It has been an amazing 8 years and I am proud to call myself a Girls prep scholar.
"I-I work hard" and "Girl, look at that brain." That's what my youngest is singing around the house lately. Not only do they work hard, but they have fun. That's what it's all about. Thank you to the teachers and staff at GP.
I really like the fact that at Girls Preparatory Charter school, when you as a parent have an issue then help I mean really,really help. Thank you GPMS! You Rock!
