SAVE GIRLS PREP! Girls Prep is requesting additional space for our high performing middle school in District 1. Girls Prep is the only school in District 1 that has effectively closed the achievement gap for African-American and Latina students. At Girls Prep, where 97% of our students are African-American or Latina, 100% of all students passed NY State Math exam and 96% passed the English Language Arts exam in 2009. In 2009, only 63% of African-American and Latino students in District 1 passed the ELA exam, and only 82% passed the Math Exam. Please show your support for Girls Prep Middle School by signing the petition. Please forward the petition to everyone you know and ask them to support the Girls Prep community and other charter schools in public school space to ensure equal access to a quality education for their children. If charter school opponents win this fight, they won’t stop there! The education of thousands of charter school students in NYC is in jeopardy. Thank you for your support.


Friends of Girls Prep are parents and supporters who believe every child must have equal access to a quality education. Girls Prep is the number two (2) ranked charter school in NYC. Girls Prep outperformed ALL the District One schools and is the ONLY SCHOOL IN DISTRICT ONE TO CLOSE THE ACHIEVEMENT GAP. Friends of Girls Prep believe all children in District One should have access to a high performing school such as Girls Prep. Charter Schools are Public Schools and have every right under NYS Law to share space in a public school building.
