Overview: About Public Prep


The Public Prep Network (PPN) is a nonprofit organization that develops single-sex elementary and middle public schools that pursue excellence through continuous learning and data-driven instruction. Our model is designed to empower each student to build strong character, demonstrate critical thinking, possess a core body of knowledge and be on a predictive path to earn a degree from a four-year university.


Our network is currently comprised of three tuition-free single-sex public charter schools across five campuses and one tuition-free single-sex Pre-K. Our campuses are: Girls Prep Lower East Side Elementary, Girls Prep Lower East Side Middle School, Girls Prep Bronx Elementary School, Girls Prep Bronx Middle School, and Boys Prep Elementary School. The Pre-K program, PrePrep: the Joan Ganz Cooney Early Learning Center is housed inside of Girls Prep Bronx Elementary School.


Public Preparatory Network/Public Preparatory Academies is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer.


Why teach at the Public Preparatory Network


At Public Prep we believe that joy, warmth, and high levels of student engagement are the foundation of a school culture where students achieve academically and develop character strengths. In the words of one community member, “Every student, every family and every Girls Prep staff member plays an important part of our amazing school, a school filled with energy, personality, hardworking people and a great deal of commitment.”


We believe in order to do that, schools not only need to deliver meaningful academics through an engaging and rigorous way, but we understand the importance of incorporating arts, the sciences, community and strong core values into our program. Our goal each day is not to only stimulate the mind, but also to reach the whole child in providing a safe consistent environment to learn and grown in. Our staff believe children learn best when they gain self-confidence and purpose when a caring community of educators not only care about their academic achievements but are truly invested in them socially and emotionally. 


Primary Function & Position Overview:

Public Prep Physical Education Teachers must consistently plan for and monitor the progress of each of their students in classes of 25 students. Physical Education Teachers meet regularly with grade level teachers, school leaders, and other specials teachers in order to build on the existing Girls Prep physical education curriculum, which is inclusive of New York State standards. Physical Education Teachers are responsible for creating robust and interdisciplinary units for students through this collaboration. Physical Education Teachers also work closely with School Aides, who provide non-academic support.

Duties & Responsibilities:

  • Clearly defined processes and structures for planning, teaching, assessing and reflecting that include designing curriculum and assessments that balance a pre- designed, codified set of content-based standards with students’ individual needs and learning styles.
  • Coaching tools and strategies that maximize their own performance and that of their students.
  • Acceptance of continuous feedback and evaluation for themselves and students based on the development of individualized goals for performance that are specific, measurable, action-oriented, realistic and time-bound.
  • Systems that enable good stewardship of resources, i.e. collaborative processes that leverage the strength of all team members, maintaining records of students’ progress towards individualized goals, for communicating with families and building community with them through annual home visits and other school events, and for attending IEP meeting and ensuring appropriate accommodations are given to students during assessments as needed.
  • Other responsibilities as assigned by Principal, which may include drop off and pick up, lunch duty, and other coverage as needed.
