Francis Scott Key/The St. Paul’s Schools
What Makes This Middle Grades Partnership
Summer 2023 launches the newest partnership between south Baltimore City’s Francis Scott Key’s (FSK) and North Baltimore’s St. Paul’s Schools.
FSK is a public Pre-K through 8th grade school in Locust Point, focused on developing the whole child. The St. Paul’s Schools is a preschool through 12th grade independent school located on a 120 acre campus in Baltimore County. St. Paul’s prides itself on a small-school environment with the opportunities that a large campus can provide.
Each Middle Grades Partnership program is wholly designed by teachers from a Baltimore City public school and its partner private school. All Middle Grades Partnership programs 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.
