We are incredibly proud of the start of the school year – we recognize that this year has continued to present us with unprecedented experiences and challenges. Heading into this year, Distinctive Schools set Mental Health and Wellness as one of our three key priorities. In honoring our commitment to mental health and wellness, Distinctive Schools has determined that providing additional time for rest is essential to support our teams, our students, and our work together moving forward.
On Friday, October 29, 2021, we will shift our calendar to a 1:00pm dismissal day and schedule. Following our already scheduled day off on November 2, 2021, we will also implement a 1:00pm dismissal on Friday, November 19, 2021. Check your email for additional information! Thank you for your continued support.
Distinctive College Prep: Harper Woods
Distinctive College Prep (DCP) - Harper Woods is a public charter school. DCP is managed by Distinctive Schools, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting each child in becoming an engaged and curious learner, a confident self-advocate, and a creative problem-solver by setting high expectations and nurturing a positive culture that honors diversity, collaboration, and optimism.
Why choose DCP?
We are a culture of innovators, and boldly believe that families, students and staff have the ideas that will change the world of our students. We are excited to be working with the community, family and students of the Harper Woods area.
Together, we hope to positively positively impact students in and outside of the classroom. All teaching learning and operations at Distinctive Schools is rooted in a safe, joyful and kind culture for everyone. We truly believe and live that if you "do what you love, you love what you do." We never stop working together at all levels of our organization to ensure that people, relationships and empathy are at the core of our work and the most powerful force in the future of our students.
