About Us


    It is our pleasure to welcome to you Ralph Bunche Preparatory Academy. We feel very fortunate to be a part of such an incredible school district as Detroit Public Schools Community District.

    Our school is built on the spirit of our network vision “Students Rise. We All Rise” We strive to be place where all staff build relationships with students first; by teaching and living our R.R.I.S.E. (Respect Responsibility Integrity Service and Enthusiasm) values to engage every student and to encourage the social and academic success that we know that each of them can attain. It is through these values, high expectations and our rigorous curriculum that students can grapple with concepts about which they are curious and that students gain the stamina and courage to take risks and become the best of themselves.

    We plan to accomplish these things through what we call “joyous rigor.” That means that we provide an environment that is fun and safe for our students physically, allows them to take risks socially and academically be the best person that they can be on their journey. In this environment our students know that their job is to learn and that learning is fun!

    Our high expectations extend to parents, teachers, support staff, and administration as we work together to monitor our student’s active learning and expand opportunities for them to acquire the skills to not only to be magnificent scholars, but great people who contribute to their communities and to the greater society in a positive and productive way.

    We are building a great school community here at Bunche and look forward to your being a part of our journey. Please visit our site often for updates about upcoming activities and goings on at our school.
