THE WORK OF OUR STRATEGIC PLAN 2018-2023

Brooklyn Park Elementary School

  • When each school began to plan their important work based on AACPS’s 2018-2023 Strategic Plan during the spring of 2018, school teams reflected on their school culture, their community, and the key factors contributing to student achievement.  Each school was then asked to consider which Strategic Plan Indicators would have the greatest positive impact for their students. School leadership teams selected indicators and developed plans to focus and guide their efforts.  Please come with us on our journey as we describe why, what, and how we do our work to serve our students and families of our school.

Brooklyn Park Elementary's School Story

  • Brooklyn Park Elementary School (BPES) is a community school located in Brooklyn Park, MD.  We are proud to serve over 440 students in our diverse community. Students attending Brooklyn Park live in four unique neighborhoods with historical significance. Some of our students are currently the third generation in their family to attend our school, and we pride ourselves on being such an important part of our community’s tradition since 1971. 

    Our school is focused on providing a rigorous and enriching education with an emphasis on building positive relationships. Additionally, our school partners with local businesses and agencies to not just support our students, but to also support the families we serve. Through these partnerships and focus on community, our school enriches the lives of the whole community and surrounding area.

    Students look forward to engaging in rigorous and interactive lessons taught by supportive staff who are focused on instruction and preparing our students to become global citizens and contributors. The hallways and classrooms are filled with examples of student learning, questioning, growth, and evidence of their expanded perspectives.

We know that learning through the arts engages students at high levels which correlates greatly with increases in achievement across the disciplines.  Moreover, arts integration is aligned to increased student achievement, higher self-esteem and parent participation.
