Staff at Democracy Prep Public Schools often speak to their scholars about thinking beyond what’s in front of them. The same goes for the teachers—they’re all invested in coming up with innovative teaching methods to best serve their scholars. Teachers often brainstorm new approaches together, observe each other’s classrooms, and give each other valuable feedback.
Founded in 2005, Democracy Prep is on a mission to educate responsible citizen-scholars for a life of active citizenship. Built on a “no excuses” model, Democracy Prep’s network of schools serves over 5,000 scholars who prove year after year that demographics do not determine destiny, and that low-income students can be successful in the college of their choice.
“Across all of the Democracy Prep network, we ingrain the idea of a growth mindset, helping students understand that it’s not just about getting to an end goal, but about how you got there and the lessons you learned along the way.”
“I think our Talent and HR Teams are great at moving people when they see a skill set and an available opening that matches. They’re great at making sure Democracy Prep is respecting everyone’s personal career goals.”
