DC Preppies Celebrate National Poetry Month

April 28 2017 | School News

 
DC Prep has a longstanding tradition of celebrating poetry through student Poet Laureates at each of our graduation ceremonies. This year, we’re doing something extra. In honor of April’s National Poetry Month, we challenged a group of Edgewood Middle Campus Preppies to amplify their voice by writing and performing poems based on a “rethink” or “impact” theme.

Not only did our poet Preppies rise to the challenge, they soared beyond it! Poems dig deep on the twin themes, covering everything from rethinking stereotypes to making an impact on the wider world.

As this year’s National Poetry Month comes to a close, click here to enjoy our students’ poetic reflections!

What our Students are Saying

“What I like about DC Prep is that they push me to achieve high, not just ‘reachable’, goals. DC Prep is strict, but I am grateful because the teachers want better things for me. In other words, I like my school because they make me work hard for what I want in life.”
Alexis, DC Prep Class of 2016
