Welcome to the 2023 school year! This year, all PGCPS schools will focus on three significant imperatives: school climate and culture through safety, accelerating achievement in mathematics, and social-emotional learning/mental health. This year’s complimentary theme at EXCEL is “Reimagine, Reset, and Restore.” Here in the “Eagle’s Nest,” we will be:
- Reimagining how to “do” school,
- Resetting expectations, systems, and structures; and
- Recharging our minds and hearts to do the work we were called to do.
As we prepare for double authorization (charter renewal and IB) and a facility move, we hope you are ready and willing to be re-engaged with the school community – we cannot be successful without your support. This means reviving your activity with the PTSO, volunteering for school activities and field trips, and sharing your time and talents for the learning of all scholars. We are certainly excited about these new beginnings.
*Only schools authorized by the International Baccalaureate can offer any of its four academic programmes: The Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme, or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.
