Who We Are: Our Community and School Culture

  • Each of our schools’ leadership teams analyzed the factors that impact their students’ ability to engage deeply and achieve academic success. They shared stories of their students and families, some of whom are facing serious challenges associated with physical wellness, social-emotional stability, unique learning needs, family security, mental health, violence, and food/housing uncertainties. They discussed the obstacles that their students face daily when preparing to come to school on time, ready to learn.

    Questions such as the following drove discussions around Anne Arundel County: 

    • What are the challenges and obstacles that negatively affect our students’ engagement and achievement most significantly and why?
    • Are we analyzing our data and listening closely to learn about all of our students when we seek to understand our learners’ social-emotional and academic struggles?
    • How do cultural differences, language challenges, transportation difficulties, health problems, and frequent family relocation (mobility) serve as obstacles to school success for our students?
    • What resources and supports are available within AACPS and across our county to support students and families in need?  How do we help our families receive the supports they need?

Our School Culture

  • Below is the school’s story as seen through the eyes of school leaders. They discuss the culture of their school and the community.

    We at Brooklyn Park Elementary School – faculty, staff, and volunteers -  are committed to providing essential supports for our students and their families daily. Much of what we do reaches far beyond the classroom walls so that our children are prepared, first to attend school, and then to demonstrate academic growth. We have established a cadre of community partners who provide our students and their families with basic necessities like bread and meals for students to take to their homes and feed their families while away from school.

    Park invites families to the school for Superhero Math Night and similar events highlighting student achievement; all enjoy dinner together as one large family before viewing the students in action. In addition, community organizations such as the Chesapeake Arts Center in Brooklyn Park and Anne Arundel County Recreation and Parks provide opportunities for students and adults to engage in a variety of events, classes, and teams in the areas of fine arts, environmental education, and athletics. While our students and our school community benefit from strong partnerships with businesses and organizations in our area, our students still face significant social challenges that may prevent them from being ready to learn, either physically or emotionally.

CHALLENGES TO STUDENT SUCCESS

  • The leadership team in each AACPS school reviewed all of the factors that may influence their students’ engagement and achievement in school; these challenges include academic data elements, community history, and socio-economic aspects of each community. The school’s leadership team identified the following elements as impactful for their students.
