Vision Statement

Our goal is to be renamed the Pimlico Math and Science Academy. Pimlico Elementary/Middle School will become a data driven academic institute of learning that will promote and foster math, science, and technology that meets or exceeds all standards for academic achievement and attendance. We aspire to become an academy that will promote the development of knowledge, attitude, and skills essential for life-long learning.

Mission Statement

Pimlico Elementary/Middle School administrators, staff, students, parents, community, and business partners, work together to create an academic, physical, emotional, social, and safe environment where everyone can learn and respect one another. We seek to create a challenging learning environment that encourages high expectations for success through development-appropriate instruction that allows for individual differences and learning styles. Our school promotes a safe, orderly, caring, and supportive environment. A climate of expectation and success is encouraged, and all pupils are helped to set realistic targets and then each pupil is given every assistance in achieving them. Providing an environment conducive to success is a key part in our pursuit of the highest standards.

HIPPY

Participating Schools

Arlington Elementary/Middle School

Program Description

Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters (HIPPY) is a an evidenced-based program that works with families in the home to support parents in their critical role as their child’s first and most important teacher.

HIPPY strengthens communities and families by empowering parents to actively prepare their children for success in school. Parents are provided with a set of carefully developed curriculum, books and materials designed to strengthen their children’s cognitive skills, early literacy skills, social/emotional and physical development.

HIPPY programs serve families from diverse ethnic and geographic groups across the nation, particularly those most at risk because of poverty, parents’ limited education and social isolation. As a result, HIPPY is closing the achievement gap by serving more than 15,000 families in almost 140 communities across the country.

SABES

Participating Schools

  • Arlington Elementary/Middle School
  • Pimlico Elementary/Middle School

Program Description

The Johns Hopkins University, in partnership with Baltimore City Public Schools, has received a $7.4 million grant over five years to fund STEM Achievement in Baltimore Elementary Schools (SABES).

The National Science Foundation award aims to leverage the skills and resources of the schools, community, and businesses in three high-minority, low-resource city neighborhoods. The goal is to integrate science into a child’s world as opposed to bringing a student into the world of scientists.

The project focuses on 40 elementary school teachers and 1,620 students in grades 3-5 at nine elementary schools in three neighborhoods. It will involve JHU students and professors, teachers, caregivers, community-based organizations, after-school program providers, area businesses and local museums.

At Johns Hopkins, the award will bring together researchers from the Whiting School of Engineering, the Krieger School of Arts & Sciences, and the School of Education. Michael Falk (shown at right), associate professor of materials science and engineering, mechanical engineering as well as physics and astronomy, will serve as the principal investigator of the project.

Project LIFTT

Participating Schools

  • Arlington Elementary/Middle School
  • Pimlico Elementary/Middle School

Program Description

Learning Ignited by Families and Teachers Together

Working with community based organizations that have a history with partner schools, we are developing a sustainable, productive parent-teacher engagement system. Parents will work with teachers directly in their classrooms, improving communication, advocacy, educational activities, and insight not only for the 6 parents and 6 teachers, but for the fellow parents and fellow teachers with whom they share their experiences. Together, they will undertake an annual School Development Campaign that mobilizes the rest of the school around a challenge of critical importance.
