Make the most of your child’s potential.

Pre-K through 5th grade are the most formative years for your child. At Govans, we’re early childhood and elementary education experts in creating the best foundation for learning and life.  

We’re the only school in the surrounding communities focused solely on Pre-K through 5th grade. Everything we do from our curriculum and facilities to our robust after school opportunities and highly experienced staff focuses on exactly what your child needs: 

  • To gain confidence 
  • To be known and loved 
  • To learn to love learning 
  • To ignite curiosity and dreams

Our school community is welcoming, nurturing, safe, and fun—just what an elementary school should be.

We’ve been the heart of the Govans community since 1931. We’re proud to be a neighborhood charter school operated by the Baltimore Curriculum Project, Maryland’s largest operator of neighborhood charter schools, since 2015.   

We’re a different type of charter school. Other charter schools are lottery only. We serve our neighborhood zone first, then we go to a lottery.
