Principal's Corner

  • Welcome to Patrick Henry Principal's Corner

    Dr. Rogers

    Welcome to Patrick Henry Downtown Academy!

    At Patrick Henry, we are determined to meet the needs of every child who walks through our doors. We have a dedicated staff that returns year after year to pursue our mission and vision. We have an invested family community that chooses St. Louis Public Schools and Patrick Henry every day, partnering with us in our mission and vision for their children. We also have a strong community of neighbors, businesses, and nonprofits that work together to provide for our students academically, socially, and emotionally. In short, we have an incredible village that comes together to serve our students daily.

    The 2021-2022 school year will bring all of our students back to school in-person. We are excited to see all of our students again at Patrick Henry! We are also aware that Covid-19 is still in effect. We will have strict Covid protocols in place that are in step with our local and national authorities like the Health Department and the CDC. Because of our strict protocols during the 2020-2021 school year, we had ZERO student Covid cases. In order to have another healthy and successful year, we must partner with our families, our neighbors, and our community organizations. Please join us in our mission to equip all students with the academic skills, scholarly habits, and character traits necessary to be successful in college or the career of their choice. 

    Thank you for choosing St. Louis Public Schools, and welcome to Patrick Henry Downtown Academy!

    Dr. Deborah Rogers
