Message from MAPCS and SFF Regarding the Middle School Closing

On Wednesday, May 1, 2013, we hosted a meeting for parents to share very important news about the future of the Maya Angelou Middle School campus – informing them that the Maya Angelou Public Charter School Board has voted to close the Middle School campus following the 2013-2014 school year.

What this news means is the following:

  • Effective fall semester 2013, we will only serve 7th and 8th grade classes for one more academic year, concluding all classes in spring 2014.
  • There will be not be a 6th grade class beginning fall 2013.
  • The Maya Angelou Middle School will close in spring 2014.

This decision was a very difficult one for our board of directors to make. But on a positive note, as we look toward the future, students will be able to attend the MAPCS Middle School campus next year. Again, the school will be open for both 7th and 8th graders-only, but will have all of the program offerings that are currently available for our students.

We remain very committed to the Maya Angelou Middle School students we have served over the past five years and will continue to advocate for outstanding options that serve them into the future.

We are also excited to continue focusing on both our high school and Young Adult Learning Center (YALC), both of which have been core to our mission since the inception of MAPCS/YALC.

As we move forward, anyone with questions is encouraged to contact Eileen Bramlet at 571.228.1906 or via email:
