Dear Govans Elementary Community Members,
Welcome to the Govans Elementary. We are very proud of the accomplishments of the children of Govans Elementary School, whose academic achievements place them among the top-performing students in Maryland!
Govans Elementary offers a variety of opportunities for our students to excel in academic areas as well as enjoy a rich array of experiences that include the visual and performing arts, physical strength and endurance activities, and opportunities to grow as responsible citizens.
If you are new to our community, you may wonder whether Govans is a charter school or a neighborhood school?
It’s both! Meaning: We have all the benefits of a charter, but we enroll students from the zone first. Unlike other charters, families zoned for Govans don’t have to enter a lottery or stress about being put on a waitlist. Their address gives them the right to enroll. Families from outside the zone may also apply to Govans. However, their spots are not guaranteed.
Govans’ charter operator is Baltimore Curriculum Project, BCP for short. BCP also operates Hampstead Hill Academy (in Canton), Wolfe Street Academy (in Upper Fells Point) and City Springs Elementary/Middle School (in historic Jonestown).
If you would like to learn more about Govans Elementary or schedule a school tour, please contact me at 410-396-6396.
