Powerful Partnerships Supporting Baltimore City Students

Mount Royal Elementary/Middle School & McDonogh School

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.

“MGP is an awesome program. My oldest daughter has been in it since she was a rising 6th grader. This year she was a rising 8th grader and was sad that it was her last year. My youngest daughter was a rising 6th grader this year and was able to experience MGP. Of course, she loved it as well. The staff is great, the trips are great, and so is the curriculum. I love that they are able to learn, and build relationships, all while having fun. We love MGP!!” — 2019 Parent
