Principal: Charles Anderson

MissionAt the Preparatory Academy for Writers, we are focused on helping our students to both set and exceed high academic, social, and emotional expectations while providing an environment that promotes cultural awareness and community excellence. It is our expectation that all middle school students take high school level courses and our high school students take college level coursework. It is our goal that every child graduate from Writers prepared for the pursuit of higher education. Students are challenged in every class to apply their knowledge of content as they hone their foundational skills in reading, writing, and discussion. Simultaneously, our instructional model develops and nurtures well-rounded students. This model is student-centered, collaborative, and encourages students to think critically while developing leadership skills in school and the community. We seek to prepare students for life’s opportunities, responsibilities, and challenges, so that they may continue to flourish long after they’ve moved on. We believe in the collaborative approach to education. We all have unique strengths and points of view, and together we are greater than the sum of our parts. By working together, our dedicated teachers, staff, and community raise the performance level of each individual by supporting every child both emotionally and educationally. Excellence is a process, not a destination. We are always innovating, improving ourselves as we strive to be the best school in New York City.
