El Tiempo Latino interviewed Briya staff and students to hear about all the opportunities our Child Development Associate Program provides. Staff discussed the benefits of being a charter school and how they believe education can change society, and students shared their experiences at Briya and their goals for the future.
The DC PCSB oversees all public charter schools in the District and evaluates them annually based on common standards. Schools are then ranked in tiers according to their performance.
This is the third consecutive year Briya has been ranked Tier 1 in adult education, ever since the rankings for adult education schools first began. This is the first year that early education charter schools in DC received tiered rankings.
Briya was honored alongside other Tier 1 schools at a ceremony, during which Jennie Niles, DC’s Deputy Mayor for Education, addressed the group.
“As education leaders, our job is to ensure that all students, in all schools, across all neighborhoods, have access to a high-quality education,” Niles said. “I’m proud that the number of top-performing charter schools in the District continues to grow, from early childhood to adult education, and that our schools continue to work together to give every student the opportunity to reach their full potential.”
