The most important factor in operating a school is to demonstrate effectiveness. Our main goal is to make sure each student that encounters our program will progress in all areas of development. We must instill discipline in all our teachers to ensure that they are effectively planning their instruction and observing students to make sure we conquer all our goals. They must understand the importance of our commitment to each family that enters DMI Prep and promise to release each student ready to become active well-rounded citizens who will be able to accomplish any goal they set forth.
DMI Prep has been a part of the community of Bensonhurst for over 10 years and has learned the importance of organizational capacity as our corporation continues to grow. Our company has roles and responsibilities that are formalized, clear and balance each other. The responsibilities are in place for every team member to address the needs of our students and families. We can diagnose capacity assets and challenges and create capacity building goals. The school receives a trimonthly assessment report. The trimonthly assessment is a tool we use four times a year to assess the school’s performance. Every team member will take the assessment to conduct a successful evaluation.

Our focus at the school is to strive for the best, to enable the growth of our students so they are beyond ready for kindergarten, and support parents while they are attending and after. The school curriculum focuses on four developmental areas and common core standards to help our students grow and increase their abilities. We are certain that our procedure of maintaining data that our students will acquire the skills necessary to enter a kindergarten setting. Being part of a school like DMI Prep not only gets the student ready academically, but socially, emotionally, and physically ready. They will develop a positive attitude toward school and become eager to socialize with new and old friends. They are receptive to learning and participating in new activities. The combination of these qualities and skills will contribute to our students being ready for academic success in beyond preschool.
