Annual Report 2015-2016


YALE UNIVERSITY. As I reflect on the results of the 2015-16 school year and now embark on the seventh year of my tenure as CEO of Public Prep, I continue to ask the single-most important question to assess the longitudinal impact of our Girls Prep and Boys Prep schools: “Are we graduating 8th grade scholars who are accepted into and excelling in high-quality, ‘right-fit’ high schools that will keep them on a path to college completion?” Girls Prep was founded in 2005 as the first and only all-girls public charter school in New York City. Back then, as we do now for every incoming class, we made an enduring promise to the parents of the scholars starting in Kindergarten and 1st grade: We are determined to achieve our goal to graduate 8th grade students who are on a predictive path to be accepted into high-performing public, private or parochial high schools, and ultimately graduate from a four-year university. I am pleased to report that in 2016, for the fourth consecutive year, Girls Prep graduated 100% of its 8th graders into college-prep parochial, private or public high schools, including our 2016 valedictorian Ashley King who now attends Millennium High School. Indeed, Girls Prep now has 196 alumnae in grades 9 through 12. This fall, the first cohort of Girls Prep scholars that graduated in 2013 will be applying to college. Thus, I have added an essential question we must now also ask ourselves each year: "Are Girls Prep alumnae being accepted into and excelling in high-quality, ‘right-fit’ colleges that will keep them on a path to college completion?" We won't know until the spring where all of our alumnae have landed, but I am thrilled to share that Kesi - one of the scholars who started with Girls Prep as a first grader in that 2005 founding class - was just accepted Early Decision to Yale University! It is fitting that Yale's mascot is a Bulldog, because it represents the tenacity and resiliency

that Kesi and all of our Girls Prep alumnae demonstrate in living out our core values of sisterhood, responsibility, merit and scholarship. The pipeline is also strong. The 2016-17 school year will be the first time in which both Girls Prep Lower East Side and Girls Prep Bronx graduate 8th grade scholars. And Girls Prep continues to be the premier provider of scholars to leadership development programs that place middle schools students in top independent high schools. This includes TEAK, Prep for Prep, A Better Chance, Breakthrough NY, Bridge to Enter Advanced Mathematics, and the STEM program at the High School for Math, Science and Engineering at CCNY. While Girls Prep continues to be a beacon of hope for our female scholars, Boys Prep Bronx is not to be outdone! In March 2016, after an ongoing battle, Boys Prep Bronx won a landmark legal decision to receive permanent public funding for private facilities. With this commitment, Boys Prep Bronx has signed a 50 year lease to create its permanent home to serve at least three generations of young men. We are renovating what will become a state-of-the-art, 80,000 sq ft facility in the heart of the South Bronx. The future of our Girls Prep and Boys Prep schools is bright. Thank you for joining us on this journey of educational excellence for our scholars. With gratitude,

Ian Rowe CEO, Public Prep Network

AN EXCERPT FROM ASHLEY KING’S VALEDICTORIAN SPEECH FROM THE 2016 EIGHTH GRADE GRADUATION. ASHLEY IS ATTENDING MILLENNIUM HIGH SCHOOL IN THE 2016-17 SCHOOL YEAR. Dear Sisters, No matter your family background, or level of support, who we are has brought us to this place and we are all capable of being leaders in this society, examples for others, and a light in the darkness. High school should be the NEXT place where we will continue to DEFY the stereotypes society would like to place on us, stretch ourselves beyond our comfort zones and strive for more than we ever thought possible.

to 8th grade, I have learned so much about myself and life as a result of my teachers, all who have empowered me in different ways. I am filled with gratitude for the people I have met over the last nine years and hold true to my heart that they are some of the greatest people I will ever know

As I had time to reflect in the last couple weeks of school I realized there was no better place for me to develop into the young woman I am than here at Girls Prep, surrounded by my sisters. Over the past four years, I attended a prestigious STEM program, visited the White House and a women’s college, researched marine biology and had the most entertaining math classes imaginable. I also discovered the rich feeling of accomplishment. From Kindergarten

Girls Prep is the name of our school but it also stands for what every young girl should yearn to be. I believe the equipment we have been armed with by our families and education, will make us the next generation of leaders this society needs.

Public Prep Academic Team Leadership Public Prep has built a robust team at both the network and school levels to ensure the network has the leadership to be an enduring institution that propels generations of scholars on a path to college completion. On May 1, JANELLE BRADSHAW joined Public Prep as the Founding Superintendent of Schools. Janelle is a native New Yorker, who grew up between the Bronx and Mount Vernon, and is a proud graduate of a single-sex education at Smith College. She is an extraordinary educator with sixteen years of experience in the field of urban education as a successful Teacher, Assistant Principal, Principal, District Administrator serving as the Director of Instructional Equity, and most recently as a Leadership Coach to network leaders and three of our Public Prep Principals.

JOSIE CARBONE, Founding Principal of Girls Prep Bronx Elementary, has taken on the networkwide role as Chief Learning Officer. In this role, she provides coaching to principals and school based leadership teams, as well as oversees network-wide professional development and curriculum support to ensure high-quality instruction in an inclusive learning environment across our schools.

ANDREW MARTIN, an experienced classroom teacher and data scientist with extensive expertise architecting, implementing, and using data to improve school performance, is the new Public Prep Chief Data and Technology Officer. In Andrew’s nine-year tenure at KIPP New Jersey, he helped that network grow from three to ten schools and developed considerable experience leading school evaluation teams, designing performance metrics, and communicating school performance data to diverse audiences. Andrew also has five years of classroom teaching experience, both in elementary school in the Bronx as a Teach For America corps member and as a founding ninth grade teacher at KIPP’s high school in New Jersey.

BRONX DEMAND AND GROWTH

OCTOBER 2016: Public Prep signs a 50 year lease to move Boys Prep into its permanent home in 2017-18 at 192 East 151 st Street in the South Bronx. Through this transformative opportunity, we can develop the next generation of men who will be leaders of strong character and inspirations for the young men following in their footsteps. Against the backdrop of seemingly daily stories of tragic violence befalling young men of color, Boys Prep Bronx presents a compelling alternative that can help break barriers for aspiring boys and empower them to realize their full potential.
