With a focus on academic achievement and leadership development, Nevada Preparatory Charter School (Nevada Prep) educates every third- through eighth-grade student for success in high school, college and life. In Nevada, more than 80% of our students earn a high school diploma. Yet, only 12% of our students are academically ready for college, and far too few students leave school ready to enter the workforce.
Every child deserves an excellent education, but a wide Opportunity Gap persists in our community. Student outcomes are consistently and drastically correlated with race, ethnicity, and household income.
Most Nevada students (at least 63%) aspire to earn at least one college degree. In order to help students realize this dream, we must prepare them to excel in high school, first.
Nevada Preparatory Charter School (Nevada Prep) is a third- through eighth-grade public charter school launched in August 2018. Nevada Prep was designed based on an in-depth study of top-performing public schools across the nation and with feedback from hundreds of Las Vegas families. We do not know what the future will look like for our students, but we know that preparing our students to think critically, communicate powerfully, and serve as leaders will serve students well, no matter what.
