Democracy Prep public charter school is a part of a 111,000 SF mixed use building on Westchester Avenue at the Simpson Speer Station in the Bronx, accommodating grades PK-5 and serving 540 students. The school program, occupying approximately 91,150 SF, is divided into two distinct PK-5 facilities sharing common areas such as the student dining, play roofs, multipurpose room, administrative, support areas, and play-roofs. The ground floor encompasses both school lobbies, the shared main office, and the retail space fronting on Westchester Avenue. There are 2 play-roofs: the main play-roof on the 2nd floor with a variety of activities for early and elementary childhood. Democracy Prep’s color, branding and graphics were used to distinguishing the 2 schools and use them as a wayfinding tool for the students.
