DRW College Prep

Welcome to DRW!

At DRW, we live our G.R.I.T. values of Growth, Reflection, Integrity, and Teamwork as we prepare our scholars for success in college and beyond. DRW scholars engage in a rigorous academic program, spend more time in class than typical high school students, and act with honor and respect as they pursue the dream of college success.

Sports Fee: We are proud to be able to offer an athletic program to our Cheetahs at DRW. As the winter season approaches, we want all of our families to know that there is a $35 fee per sport at DRW. This fee must be paid to participate in any sport at DRW this school year. The fee helps with some of our costs like equipment, uniforms, supplies, and game fees. Questions, see Mr. Ford, our Athletic Director. To pay, see Mr. Aviles, our Office Manager today!
