Welcome to Newark Prep!
Welcome to the 2014–2015 School Year!
Dear Parents and Guardians:
On behalf of the Newark Prep Charter School Board of Trustees, I take great pleasure in announcing to you our new Head of School, Ms. Tora Townsend.
A Doctoral candidate in Educational Leadership, Ms. Townsend comes to Newark Prep with a an Educational Specialist Degree (Ed.S) in School Administration (Superintendent), Master of Arts Degree in Educational Leadership, a Master of Arts Degree in Teaching, and a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English and Political Science.
Ms. Townsend holds a Superintendent’s license, a Principal’s license and a Teaching certificate.
A former teacher, Ms. Townsend has extensive experience in teacher training and development, having worked for both KIPP Schools and K12 in these areas.
Most importantly, however, for a school model like Newark Prep, Ms. Townsend brings with her the significant experience of leadership of blended-learning and virtual high schools. Ms. Townsend successfully led the High School division of Hoosier Academy, a school chartered by Ball State University (Indiana). Her tenure there as school leader saw significant student test score gains, and the high school attaining a state grading of an “A”!
We are very excited to have this dynamic and accomplished leader as our Head of School! We invite you to meet and welcome Ms. Townsend formally at an Open-House at Newark Prep on Sunday afternoon, September 7th from 2-4pm.
We wish a warm welcome to our freshmen families, and a warm welcome back to the sophomores and juniors. We look forward to an exciting school year! We look forward to seeing you on September 7th.
