Our Goals

The goals set by Middle Grades Partnership for its students are multifaceted. We charge each of our partnerships with the following: at the end of three summers in Middle Grades Partnership, Baltimore City students should be able to write a clear and concise five-paragraph essay, read for pleasure, cite text, be prepared to take Algebra 1 and gain acceptance to a city-wide highly selective academic entrance criteria. We have added the component of preparing our students in critical non-cognitive areas as well including executive function, perseverance and leadership. We support each partnership with devising a program to meet the above criteria, building on the strengths of both schools.
Our goals are to aid our students to:
  • Halt and reverse summer learning loss
  • Possess broad and deep algebraic reasoning skills and be prepared for high-level high school mathematics
  • View themselves as writers, able to write clear and convincing descriptive and expository paragraphs within five-paragraph essays
  • Have reading comprehension skills at or above grade level, easily cite text to support interpretation, view themselves as readers and read willingly for pleasure
  • Develop non-cognitive skills and high-level executive functioning
  • Be accepted into academically rigorous public high schools with college preparatory curricula
