The children of Union Square
Congratulations to
Southwest Baltimore Charter School!

Where academics, family and community come together.
Southwest Baltimore Charter School was granted a charter by the Baltimore City Public School System.

Selected to open a school in September 2005, Southwest Baltimore Charter School is poised to make a major impact on the Union Square neighborhood. With an innovative curriculum and commitment to the Southwest Baltimore community, the school will be the perfect option for parents who want their children to get an excellent education within the free public school system. And, for residents of Southwest Baltimore, it will be close to home!

Southwest Baltimore Charter School first opened in the fall of 2005 with two classes each of Pre-K, K, and First Grade. Today, the school has classes through the Eighth Grade.

Southwest Baltimore Charter School is dedicated to developing eager learners and critical thinkers who are committed to personal success and the success of their communities. With a focus on developing social, human and financial capital in our classrooms and in our broader neighborhood, Southwest Baltimore Charter School will prepare students to compete, succeed and contribute.
