How Have We Impacted Our Scholars?





What Makes Us

Stand Out?



We Invest in Quality Student Experiences

We believe in nurturing the whole child, by cultivating partnerships and special programming. We offer a wide array of opportunities, including dual enrollment college-credit courses, athletics, a variety of after school clubs and activities, and special events.

We Provide a Great Start

We offer a quality early elementary program beginning at age three. We create positive learning experiences for all of our students.  Our free, full-day PreK-3, PreK-4, and Kindergarten programs infuse learning with fun and establish a strong education foundation.

We Cater to Diverse Learners

We provide Honors and AP classes for high-achieving students and enrichment programs for students in need of support. 

We Have a Diverse Staff

Our school leaders and staff are a reflection of the students we serve. Research has shown when students of color work with teachers of color their academic performance increases. 

We Care

Our students come first, parents' voices matter, and our staff is committed to teaching, engaging, and empowering students.


How Have We Impacted Our Families?

“I wanted a safe environment for my girls to learn and grow. Marion P. became that place for us. Now all of my children are a part of the village!”-PAC Academy Parent

“As a parent doing research, I found that Marion P. Thomas had a reputation for great academic excellence and values. After sending my daughter to your school, she now has a strong educational foundation!”-STEAM Academy Parent

“Marion P. is more like a family school! Families have grown to become friends. The administration and staff do everything possible to make sure my child is getting the education we as parents desire!"-MPTCHS Parent
