The Maya Angelou Public Charter School Focus

At the Maya Angelou Public Charter School (MAPCS), we strive to create a learning community grounded in an engaging school culture; a meaningful, rigorous and personalized academic program; and a robust collection of wraparound services that ensure all of our students are well-prepared for life beyond the diploma.     

Many of our students face challenges in their home life and experience trauma or upheaval that requires a different approach from traditional schools.  In turn, our staff takes an individualized approach to working closely with each of our students and families not only for academic success today, but for success in the future as positive contributors to society and life-long learners.     


Our Results 

Our school has earned three stars on OSSE’s School Report Card (2018-2019), making us the highest-ranking school for opportunity youth in the District, and the second-highest performing high school in Ward 7.

Happy #WomenCrushWednesday and #WomensHistoryMonth! This month, we are highlighting our wonderful leaders and all they do for Maya Angelou Schools! We also want to share this quote from Ms. Tuesday: “I try my best to Live and Breathe "The Maya Way" providing our students with a plethora of resources and opportunities. We work hard to ensure our students have a growth mindset, are heading in the right direction, graduate, and are prepared for the REAL world after leaving MAPCS. Lastly, I personally embrace and uplift as many students as I can as those encouraging relationships are sometimes all a student needs to See Forever!” Thanks for all you do! #MayaSchools #MayaThriving #DCCharterProud #DCEducation #Ward7DC #FemaleLeaders #WCW ...
