Violetville Elementary/Middle School (Baltimore City Schools #226) enjoys a long history of community-based learning. The location and buildings have changed through the years, from a simple 1893 in-residence schoolroom to our beautifully renovated complex at 1207 Pine Heights. In 2010, we proudly celebrated the opening of our newly-constructed building with Governor Martin O'Malley and many local political supporters and neighborhood friends. Our PTA was critical in advocating for the funds necessary for these capital improvements, which speaks to the incredible commitment of Violetville families to our school.
Today, Violetville Elementary/Middle School stands as a center of educational excellent where high-quality instruction is the cornerstone. Violetville School offers students and families a wide range of programs, both academic and extracurricular. This year, students reached the National Academic League playoffs, middle school interscholastic basketball has drawn enthusiastic crowds, and Readers & Writers club brings together students and teachers with texts worth talking about. Student support comes from teachers during and after school, as well as from the wider school community (including all-school implementation of both the Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports [PBIS] and PATHS to PAX programs). The school’s emphasis on home-school-community cooperation and teamwork strongly supports the school’s motto, “Super Violetville, Where Striving For Excellence Makes A Difference!”
Our school vision encapsulates all of our teachers', students', and families' goals:
We will, as a Violetville School Community, implement rigorous academic programs so all students are prepared to meet or exceed exit standards, without remediation, when they move to the next stage in their continuing education.
