Powerful Partnerships Supporting Baltimore City Students

Cross Country Elementary/Middle School & Bryn Mawr

What Makes This Middle Grades Partnership

Each Middle Grades Partnership program is wholly designed by teachers from a Baltimore City public school and its partner private school. Because students differ from site to site, programs do too. However, all Middle Grades Partnership programs—designed to stimulate, not remediate—embody these principles:

  • Creative, exciting and experienced teachers from public and private schools leading each classroom
  • Rigorous and rewarding academic and enrichment activities during 150 hours of summer programming, with a strong focus on building skills in algebra, writing and reading
  • Projects during the school year that bring students from both schools together to better understand themselves and their city, and to make a difference in their communities.
What Makes This Partnership Unique

Directors from both schools will be inspired to create well-rounded programming that brings students beyond their school communities to collaborate on projects that will help them better understand themselves and their city.

“I enjoyed working every single day. This has been the best job that I’ve ever had. Middle Grades Partnership’s freedom as a director and teacher allows for meaningful moments in the classroom each day and teaching things that students see value in.”
