Take a tour of Democracy Prep Public Schools and the amazing things our citizen-scholars are doing as they journey along the path to college and a lifetime of active citizenship. At Democracy Prep we are not only providing an outstanding educational opportunity for the students of Central Harlem, but we are also challenging them to fulfill our motto: Work Hard. Go to College. Change the World! At Democracy Prep we know there is no challenge too great for our outstanding teachers and citizen-scholars to overcome, and we have proven it by being one of the highest-ranked schools in New York City since opening our doors five years ago.
