My school is a rare gem in the Baltimore City school system. The combination of rigor and whole child education in a diverse school setting is a special combination. I love that the kids get not only weekly art, music, gym and Spanish- they also go on field trips to supplement their learning. The middle school program is small and robust, and the kids get to go to Spain to practice their Spanish.
Our school is a great school because "We Are Family" ! I say this in the truest sense because we involve our family (children) in the process of learning. When you can actually bring your children to work and trust their education is in good hands not because you work there but because of the multi-levels of talented individuals that you call colleagues, it is a blessing. Thank you family for all the hard work you do!
Our school has a hard working team of parent volunteers, exceptional teachers and caring and professional administrative staff. The diversity of the school and culture of high academic expectation is preparing our children for a promising future. The school evolves and improves on itself every year. We are proud to be part of this PPPCS family 4 years strong!
PPPCS is a wonderful community-centered school with fantastic students and involved families. Students and family members have opportunities to learn and grow above and beyond the reach of a traditional school. Teachers are hard-working and dedicated to their students.
My school is great and our staff is awesome! We teach to the whole child and know that we need to come prepared every single day. Our school is community based and we make sure that our presence is noticed by participating in service learning days that aid our community.
PPPCS is a community-centered learning environment that focuses on developing the whole child. Students learn by engaging in real-world problems through experiences developed by our staff and in conjunction with our community partners. Students thrive in an environment that uses interdisciplinary, thematic, hands-on instruction. I like that this school engages more than just the academic side of children (and their families). With extracurricular activities abound, students are engaged, students are curious, students are happy. There are many opportunities for children to succeed in this school both during the school day and after hours.
PPPCS is an integral part of my child's academic and social development. Excellent resource to the community
I love PPPCS because we've got it all - amazing students, supportive parents, strong administration, helpful community partners, and terrific teachers who all work together!
I love Patterson Park Public Charter School because of the amazing students, staff, and parents. It's definitely the best school around!!!
I love our school because our students are so dedicated and our teachers do 'whatever it takes'!
Fantastic students, wonderful staff, and engaged parents...this school is the best in Baltimore City!
It has great diversity, superb sp. ed support, high quality instruction and strong emotional as well as academic support for the students and their families. Thwe school policy also includes seeking support from other agencies for students and their families. It is every thing a realy fine inner-city school should be !
Fabulous environment, fabulous kids, a shining island in the middle of utter urban despair.
This will be our family's fourth year at PPPCS and we love it! The curriculum has been refined even further this year into an exciting Thematic/Experiential learning approach. In my personal conversations with teachers, they feel very supported by the administration and are very excited to be a part of the growth at PPPCS. Many of the children seem to have a wonderful sense of ownership in their school and as I have heard a few times from different kids, 'Smart kids are not teased at our school. They are looked up to by the other kids.' PPPCS is providing our family with one of the best reasons to stay and raise our child in Baltimore City.
Patterson Park Public has made tremendous strides in the past year! New leadership, a rejuvenated parent group, and a renewed focus on the charter, student achievement and climate are making our school a great one.
I have found PPPCS to be the best fit for my daughter, the teachers are very creative, they use Project Based Learning, they also have an open door policy, so you always feel welcome to come in and and be part of the school, not just your childs classroom, I can come in and visit my daughter's classroom anytime. There is great sence of community, and as I parent I feel like my opinions are always taken into consideration.
