The Benjamin Banneker Charter Public School a K1 through grade 6 Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) school serving all students. The school is founded on the belief that all students are able to develop academic mastery, regardless of race, socioeconomic status, culture, native language, gender or sexual orientation. The staff of caring, dedicated, and highly qualified professionals integrate language and fine arts into the standard-based STEM curricula and uses authentic data to monitor every student’s growth and achievement.



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 excel in all academic and non-academic areas, and be well prepared for high school and beyond. They will respect themselves, their classmates, school, community, and the value 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.
