This school was chosen in partnership with Baltimore City Public Schools which, every year, renovates a set number of libraries through its own process considering academic and facility needs.
Francis Scott Key Elementary/Middle School in Locust Point serves students in pre-kindergarten to 8th grade. The school’s mission is to build inspired, engaged, and well-rounded students who are prepared for competitive high schools and colleges, meaningful careers, and deeply understand the world around them. To fulfill its mission, Francis Scott Key provides outstanding programs and has committed teachers, students, families, staff, and local and national community partners.
One of my favorite memories was watching elementary students receiving brand new jackets from Operation Warm. The joy on their faces and the fact that they would be warm through the winter months was priceless.
