I am continuously inspired by my colleagues to improve my instruction. DC Prep shares my belief that character education is key to academic success.

Some things I love about working here: - Continued professional development and feedback for teachers, no matter how long you've been in the classroom. - Staff members who are all incredibly dedicated and hardworking, and who like working together. - Families who are involved in what is going on in their child's education. Our Parent Action Team is an amazing resource for our school, and they do so much to support the work of our teachers.

DC Prep is an excellent school. The teachers are extremely dedicated and hard-working and are passionate about their students. The curriculum is rigorous and requires students to work very hard. Students who enjoy being challenged academically will thrive at DC Prep. The school has a very proactive school culture with high expectations for students. There are a lot of incentives for students who are on time, focused in class, completing homework and working hard. It is a terrific school all around!

DC Prep is committed to building the educational divide in Washington, DC and I am honored to be a part of such an amazing school with dedicated educators and students with an immeasurable desire to learn. Outsiders may see us as having unrealistic expectations for our preppies, but we don't want to create a world of mediocrity, but greatness. And to those people, i say, raise your expectations! Our preppies are students who will one day become presidents, doctors, educators, and leaders! I hope to one day send my own children to DC Prep. Thank you DC Prep for providing Washington, DC with a Decade of Raising the Bar!

My daughter is in the fourth grade at DC Prep EMC. She is the highest scoring student in her grade, as she was last year and the year before at DC Prep EEC. She loved EEC. She HATES EMC. It is not the curriculum or homework, which are great, or the dedication of the staff, which is considerable. It is the intense disciplinary environment. There are assigned seats at lunch. Talking is prohibited almost anywhere, including lunch at times. There are routine detentions for minor infractions, which would not even be infractions at any other school,and for things which the student has no control over, such as being tardy, as a way to punish the parents. This kind of pointless, unfair discipline does nothing but make her angry, as it would anyone. She thinks the teachers are picking on her and trying to find anything to punish her for because she is so well behaved. I tend to agree, especially since the Principal said at the beginning of the year that everyone would get consequences, so that they would learn to accept them and move on. The only moving on we will be doing is to another school. ASAP

DC Prep is doing really well with my neighbors kid. I think that schools such as DC Prep should have more campus.

My son has graduated from DC Prep and now attends McKinley Technology. The DC Prep teachers and their determination to reveal the excellence in each student is the reason I would recommend this school to anyone....

DC Prep is committed to academic excellence. Teachers care unconditionally about student success and leadership works hard to support and create lifelong teachers and learners. The school focuses on collaboration among teachers and works hard to create rigorous, engaging material and lessons that meet the needs of all students. It is an honor to work at such a school where parents, staff, and students care so deeply and are all invested in meeting the same goals.

DC Prep has one goal, to have its students succeed at the best area high schools and successfuly complete college. The teachers at the school pursue this goal relentlessly, most working 60 hours or more per week crafting the curriculum to ensure this is possible for every student. The result of this pursuit is an outstanding curriculum and results for students. In math, students achieve high test scores, but more importantly delve deeply into the process of math understanding. In reading and writing, students explore literature using supports that allow them to first meet and then exceed grade level expectations. In both reading and math, Prep Session classes allow students to work up to grade level or accelerate depending on their needs. In social studies, science, and specials, students receive hands-on instruction that allow students to really experience these subjects. This instruction, supported by an intense character education model allows all students to be ready for great high schools. DC Prep's only shortcoming is its singular focus on great high school success. Strict dedication to academic success is their focus. There is room for little else.

My school is unapologetically focused on improving the odds for DC Public School students. The teachers are determined to partner with families and motivate and influence students to develop strong academics and character. DC Prep provides a structured, loving environment that sets the stage for students to engage in high level learning. DC Prep has small group instruction so that students who are behind can catch up, and students who are ahead can increase their lead. As a teacher, I like that I am treated as a professional and pushed to constantly improve my instruction and the results of my students. My school could improve by continuing to share best practices so that more schools in the city can improve the future of their students.

DC PREP EMC is one of the best all around schools in this region. They have great leadership, very strong academics (as proven by the test scores), great staff and a group of students who are always eager to learn. DC PREP is a very challenging school. However, this is the type of school that can offer your child greater opportunities when the time comes to apply to high school. Also, by being encouraged to always Do The Right Thing, they build on very key social elements,such as character, integrity, values, respect for others as well as self. Love it! Love it! Love it!!!!

I love this school and the teachers and the students & everything about the school. My daughter loves going to school. It is her goal to be on time, in proper uniform and to get as many "responsible marks" as her paper can hold. DC Prep EMC & EEC are top notch. Not only do the students work hard, but they also play hard. Great field trips and incentives that make anyone want to do their best!

I am a former teacher, and I found the leadership strong, the teachers smart and committed, and the organization in the school supportive and student centered.

About the tests


The DC school classification system includes multiple measures to evaluate performance and student growth. The possible classifications, from highest to lowest, are Reward, Rising, Developing, Focus and Priority. These measures include the DC CAS, annual growth, graduation rates, attendance rates and participation rates. Under the system, required under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), each school is given a School Index Score based on the performance of its students. Schools receive different levels of support, resources, flexibility and monitoring based on their classification.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
