ABOUT MIDDLE VILLAGE PREP
Middle Village Prep is a small, independent, public charter school which will serve students in grades 6-8. In our first year of operation (2013-2014) we will serve 120 sixth graders and grow by one grade each year until the school reaches its maximum capacity of 360 students. It is located on the Christ the King Campus. Admission is via lottery with District 24 as a priority.
The mission of the Middle Village Preparatory Charter School (MVP) is to prepare students for success at a selective college prep high school of their choice. The MVP curriculum is a rigorous curriculum designed to meet and surpass the New York State Education Department requirements. Central to the instructional model is a longer school day and increased classroom instructional time that is devoted to curriculum subjects. Students will master skills and attain subject proficiency by the end of the 8th grade. The curriculum of MVP includes a requirement that all students study Latin for three years, a key language for building a strong vocabulary and understanding of romance languages such as Spanish and Italian. Mathematics and English Language Arts are prioritized by allocating twice the amount of instructional time that is customarily devoted to these critical instructional areas. Science, Social Studies, the Arts, Physical education and Health, along with time allocated for enrichment and extracurricular activities round off the typical daily schedule. It requires that all students take available Regent-level courses, such as Integrated Algebra and Earth Science or Living Environment in grade 8.
The Founding Board of the Middle Village Preparatory Charter School (MVP) was formed by parents, residents and educators who live in Community School District 24 and have seen the overcrowding of our communities’ public schools. They are aware of the importance of middle school shaping a child’s future and as a result, created MVP, serving grades 6 through 8 as an alternative option to families in the school district.
