“I really hope I can come back year after year after year and year to come, and maybe when I’m old enough, I can work as a staff member that helps out the students here for the summer. I really like it here.”
Middle Grades Partnership increases opportunities for academically promising Baltimore City public middle school students through public and private school partnerships.
