2015 First-Year Fellow: Savannah Moss '18

Article Type 

DC Prep, where I worked as a First-Year Fellow this summer, is a network of charter schools committed to closing the educational divide in Washington DC. DC Prep achieves this goal by lengthening the school day, implementing standards-based instruction, employing targeted intervention, and assessing continuously. These tools have proven successful, as DC Prep has received the highest test scores for a public charter school in the DC area.

The most rewarding part of my fellowship was meeting the DC Prep team. Everyone working at the school was dedicated to the DC Prep mission. Their passion for education made me excited to come to work every morning and made me look forward to a career in education policy.
