Mission:

The Benjamin Banneker Charter Public School is an urban K - 6 Science and Technology School, committed to excellence in Education. We believe all students can excel as learners and citizens when provided a rich, supportive, and stimulating educational environment. The BBCPS is the inspiration of concerned community leaders, parents, and educators, with the common vision and purpose of providing all Cambridge and local youth, regardless of race, culture, language or socioeconomic status with a high quality education.

 

Vision:

The Benjamin Banneker Charter Public School will be known as a school that is changing the face of public education. It will be an example of educational excellence and dignity. Banneker students will be well prepared, both academically and socially, for high school and beyond. They will excel in all academic and non-academic areas. They will be respectful of themselves, their classmates, their school, their community, and of education. All members of the Banneker community will support each other in pursuit of these common goals. We will exhibit commitment, compassion, patience, and perseverance. We will strive to meet the needs of each student and we will challenge all students - expecting achievement and celebrating success when our students soar. Educational Philosophy: We believe that every student is a unique and talented individual who can and will learn given a rich curriculum and environment, quality teachers, and a culture of high expectations and encouragement. We believe that by working together as a community, we will successfully educate the whole child. We celebrate individual growth and community success.
