Democracy Prep (DPCS) is a public charter school in Central Harlem with some of the most impressive academic results in the city of New York. In our first 2 years, DPCS ranked in the top 1% of all New York City Schools. DPCS will grow to serve 635 students in grades 6-12 preparing each and every citizen-scholar for success in the college of their choice and a life of active citizenship.
Our Core Values are represented by the acronym DREAM (Discipline, Respect, Enthusiasm, Accountability, and Maturity). DREAM embodies everything we expect DPCS scholars to strive towards. Likewise, our DREAM Team of amazing teachers and administrators accept no excuses and ensure a safe, structured, and supportive school environment for our scholars and families.
All subject area teachers will use self-designed curricula aligned to state and national standards to ensure students master basic skills. In addition, students will develop the critical thinking skills necessary for success in each class as well as a passion for life-long learning. Teachers are given autonomy in exchange for clearly articulated accountability for the performance and growth of all students using frequent assessment data, and constant professional development and coaching from the co-directors.
Teachers at Democracy Prep are provided with an extremely generous salary, that starts at least 10% above the Department of Education, as well as significant performance bonuses, a comprehensive benefits package (health, dental, vision, 403(b) plan, life insurance, disability, etc.) and a working environment which includes all the necessary technology and resources to succeed in the classroom and beyond.
Most of all, teachers at Democracy Prep join a DREAM Team of like-minded educators who work to achieve the same mission while ensuring that our students work hard, go to college, and change the world!
