The mission of Memphis Delta Preparatory (MDP) Charter School is to support and grow productive and well-rounded citizens who will succeed in college and beyond. We will work tirelessly to ensure that all of our students are prepared to reach, attend, and graduate from highly selective colleges and universities. A completed course of study at a top-tier college will allow our students to build and support healthy and happy families, empower and improve their Memphis neighborhoods, and enjoy a rich intellectual life. Memphis Delta Prep opened with 250 students in grades K-4 in 2016. At full capacity, MDP will serve 480 students in grades K-5 in the South Memphis community.
THE MDP DIFFERENCE FOR EDUCATORS
The word “Delta” in “Memphis Delta Prep” refers not only to Memphis’s historic gateway location but also to the Greek letter used to denote change. We believe that to change outcomes for students and families, we must change our practice as educators — and fast! Our goal is to accelerate the learning of our students by accelerating the skill growth of our teachers. To do this, we spend significantly more time than other schools on developing, supporting and coaching our teachers. To make this possible:
We ensure our teachers feel supported by our operations program, celebrated for their excellence, happy to be engaged in the fun work of teaching alongside great colleagues, and excited about the incredible opportunity to learn and improve in each moment.
