Commodore John Rodgers Elementary/Middle School

  • Commodore John Rodgers Elementary/Middle School Before

“Commodore to college.” That phrase is heard every day at Commodore John Rodgers Elementary/Middle School, whose vision is to “move 100 percent of students to college, so they’ll have the opportunity to do what they choose in life.” Staff members are committed to equipping students with the skills, experiences, and mindsets needed for success.

In addition to rigorous academics, Commodore provides activities and supports to nurture the whole child. A certified “green school,” Commodore is proud of its commitment to the environment and sustainability. Partnerships with the Living Classrooms Foundation and Elev8 Baltimore support students in and out of school and make the school a resource for the entire community.

Our library renovation energized our students’ interest in coming to the library. While students are always excited to check out books, they also love the library space. [They] can find a cozy nook to read a book quietly or work in larger areas in a group.
