Patterson Park Public Charter School

The Patterson Park Public Charter School Project involved the refinancing and rehabilitation of the school’s existing facilities for grades one through six, and new construction to create for six classrooms and science lab for the middle school. This project was financed using 501c(3) tax exempt bonds issued by the Maryland Health and Higher Educational Facilities Authority. This was the first Charter School in Maryland to be financed using these bonds.

The school has been in existence for four years and has a strong educational track record. Its leadership and staff are very committed to this effort. The school has a waiting list for its classes. There is a very strong partnership between the School and the Baltimore City Public School System. The project sponsor is Patterson Park Public School, Inc. 501 c(3) nonprofit corporation.
