The DPHE New Family Dragon Newsletter 

Welcome Speech!

Democracy Prep Public Schools NYC is comprised of 12 high-performing college preparatory K-12 schools across East Harlem, Central Harlem, and the Bronx. We offer specialized programming and are committed to educating our highest need scholars who have IEP/ 504 plans and/or identify as English Language Learners. At Democracy Prep Harlem Elementary (DPHE) we are not a school, but a family, and we make it a priority to build genuine and authentic relationships with all of our scholars and their families. We know every child’s name, every member of their immediate family, and even their extended families. Apart from our genuine relationships, DPHE offers other attributes that you won’t be able to find anywhere else. Currently, we provide ALL school supplies to our students, we have an encompassing learning schedule that is built on the model of High Expectations, High Resources, and we believe that ALL scholars can learn and make it a priority to do just that. We are so excited to officially welcome you to our expanding Democracy Prep family! We are thrilled that you decided that Democracy Prep Harlem Elementary was the school for your scholar and your family.
