Perry Street Prep High School’s academic program is designed to challenge, engage, develop and support lifelong learners.
- In each classroom, students are challenged to go after their personal best by peers and teachers.
- Teachers set high expectations for our students and facilitate learning through a thoroughly-mapped curriculum that is aligned to the DC Public Schools standards of learning and the DC Comprehensive Assessment System (CAS).
