Perry Street Prep Public Charter
Our school was founded as Hyde Leadership Public Charter School by Joseph W. Gauld of Hyde Schools in 1999. We were one of the first charter schools to open in the District and have grown to be one of the largest. Our Board decided to end our affiliation with the Hyde Foundation in April 2011. The DC Public Charter School Board approved our new name, amended charter and new mission on June 27, 2011. Effective July 1, 2011, we became Perry Street Preparatory Public Charter School.Mission: Perry Street Prep is a community of diverse learners that builds relationships with families and empowers students to be college-ready and to thrive in a global society. Our philosophy is centered on the belief that every child deserves the right to a high quality education that prepares them for unlimited global opportunities.
Location: 1800 Perry St. NE, Washington, DC 20018. Our newly-renovated, state-of-the-art building offers high-tech classrooms, a spacious media center and other amenities that support a 21st century college preparatory education.
