Dear Newark Parents and Guardians:

Welcome to the 2015–2016 academic year!

This school year at Newark Prep promises to be exciting for many reasons…

This, our fourth year in operation, Newark Prep finally has a complete compliment of high school classes—grades 9 through 12!

As in years past, you’ll find improvements and new additions to our facility—particularly new classrooms added, and new computers and furniture, too. Not to mention all the new teachers and support staff on board to serve the students of our grade expansion.

This is also our charter renewal year! This important time in the life of a charter school affords us a unique opportunity to reflect on the successes of Newark Prep while addressing our weaknesses—and planning for the future of the school. Any parent or guardian interested in participating in the charter renewal process should contact Ms. Damaris Valazquez, our school secretary.

Newark Prep will begin a new Career Technical Education (CTE) program this year, that offers many opportunities for our upperclassmen to directly shape their own future with learning experiences rooted in the careers they are interested in.   

And finally, this school year provides us with Newark Prep’s first graduating class of seniors: the Class of 2016! The entire Newark Prep community is excited for these young people as they complete their secondary education with us, and we assist them as they move on to college, careers and their place in the community.

As always, we are very grateful you have chosen to enroll your child at Newark Prep, and pledge to do our best to provide every student a world-class education!
