Baltimore City Public Schools provides excellence in education for every child at every level by focusing on quality instruction, managing systems efficiently, and sustaining a culture of excellence. Led by Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Sonja Brookins Santelises, City Schools is among the country's largest urban school districts with nearly 84,000 students and 180 schools and programs.
City Schools' portfolio includes schools with distinct academic focuses, all-boys and all-girls schools, charter schools - a range of options to meet the needs of every student and the professional interests of every teacher.
Every day, students walk through the doors of Baltimore’s schools filled with talent, dreams, and enormous potential. Our responsibility is to provide the world-class education that will empower them to hone their gifts and develop the skills they need to pursue the future that calls them.
Based on research and conversations with hundreds of stakeholders, City Schools has developed a five-year strategic plan that we call Blueprint for Success, turning our focus to three key areas to help our students reach their goals: Student Wholeness, Literacy, and Staff Leadership.
