Meridian PCS (District)


Meridian Public Charter School is a co-educational elementary and middle school combined. We enroll students starting at the Early Childhood level (3 years old) to the 8th grade level. We are located in the U Street Corridor of Washington, DC. Welcome to the place “where the love of learning lives”. Meridian was established in 1999 by a group of community members who believed that a community-based public charter school could improve the lives of students in the District of Columbia. With a strong desire to improve the community, Meridian quickly grew from a school of only 87 students, from Pre-Kindergarten to Third Grade, to a thriving educational institution with over 500 students, from Pre-Kindergarten to Eighth Grade. The mission of Meridian is to instill within our students a passion for learning and to build self-confidence and self-respect through academic achievement. We aim to do this by creating a secure and positive learning environment in which children are encouraged to develop their full potential, intellectually, physically, socially, and emotionally. We prepare children to become contributing members of society. Curriculum integration is paramount to academic achievement. Through a thematic approach, concepts in science, social studies, language arts, and mathematics are explored. Our goal is to create critical thinkers who are excited about the learning process. Meridian was named a “Top School” in the District of Columbia by Johns Hopkins University and honored by FOCUS for “Closing the Achievement Gap”. Meridian continues to advance itself in its core mission, and prepares students for elite charter, private, and public high schools.
