When it comes to choosing a school for your child, we know parents are faced with a myriad of choices: public, private or charter. At Paul Public Charter School, we feel that we provide students with a unique opportunity to excel both in and outside the classroom. Here are 5 reasons why you should consider Paul Charter School.

1. Legacy

Paul Public Charter School is the legacy of Cecile Middleton, an educational pioneer who saw in its walls, a school where students grow in both knowledge and character and are prepared to lead lives of purpose, service, and leadership. Her passion forged a home for young minds to focus on modern, diversified academics, serving the community.

2. Opportunity

Located on a vibrant campus in the heart of the nation’s capital, Paul PCS provides students with abundant opportunities for intellectual exploration within a diverse and supportive learning community. As a trailblazer in education for decades in the Washington D.C. area, our dedicated teachers and staff go the extra mile to make sure that our students are given an opportunity to excel beyond expectations and dream big.

3. M.E.R.I.T. Scholar Program

Each year, with a new generation of M.E.R.I.T scholars—motivated, education, responsible, independent thinkers – leave Paul PCS well-rounded and positioned for success. From Honors and AP courses, field trips, performances, STEM-based learning opportunities, sports, cheer and dance – we want our scholars to experience it all!

4. International Travel

For Paul International High School (PIHS), the world becomes their classroom as Paul PCS Scholars travel to explore history through culture, nature, environment, language, and community development. Over 60 scholars have gone to ten or more countries, to include Japan, Paraguay, Cuba, Panama, Jamaica, Italy, England, and Zambia. Paul Scholars travel abroad based on the safety, security and global health conditions of the world abroad.

5. Arts & Athletics

We provide our students with a variety of academic, social, cultural and after-school activities and clubs to ensure a well-rounded experience for all of our scholars. From partnerships with Alvin Ailey and the Kennedy Center, the excitement of Paul Pirates athletic programs and cross-cultural initiatives, when you enter Paul PCS, you begin a journey that will set you on a path towards creating a legacy that will exceed beyond your expectations.
