Patterson Park Public Charter School is a community-founded school driven to academic excellence and devoted to a whole child philosophy in a diverse setting. We believe in…
Challenging every child academically using interdisciplinary, thematic, hands-on instruction that fosters creativity, critical thinking and a life-long love of learning.
Developing character in our young people by cultivating civility, perseverance, resilience and shared responsibility.
Partnering with our broader community to support student success, healthy families and strong neighborhoods.
Charter schools are independent public schools that are allowed to be more innovative and are held accountable for improved student achievement. The Maryland General Assembly passed the Charter School Act of 2003 “…to establish an alternative means within the existing public school system in order to provide innovative learning opportunities and creative educational approaches to improve the education of students.”
