Our mission at PMS is to provide a positive school environment where quality teaching and successful learning are prized and supported. The Patapsco staff takes pride in knowing each student as a learner, and instilling in all children a love and respect for learning. Our diversity is our strength and we continually work to provide a culturally inclusive environment for all of our students and their families. The Patapsco Middle School community will share the responsibility for fostering optimum achievement and a positive learning environment for all.
We retain the qualities of a small community, where everyone knows your child's name. Our caring, committed, highly effective and qualified staff is skilled in providing high leverage teaching strategies and we maintain a positive learning environment in our school. Students practice "The Knight way is the Right way" and are rewarded for their effort with positive phone calls to parents, in class incentives, activity days, and recognition at our quarterly awards assemblies. Our PTA provides us with many resources, including parent volunteers, cultural arts performances and family activities that enhance the learning opportunities we provide to students. Visitors are always welcome at Patapsco. Please call the school to arrange an appointment if you would like to visit or have questions about our school.
