Dr. Deborah Rogers

Welcome to Patrick Henry Downtown Academy! 

The 2019-2020 school year ended in one of the most unusual set of circumstances we have ever experienced. A global pandemic changed the way we function as a school, introducing distance learning into our daily practice and forcing us to rethink how to reach each of our students academically, socially, and emotionally. It was amazing to watch our educational community pull together to get resources into the hands of our students. I know this was an incredibly stressful time for our families, our students, our community partners, and our staff, but it was also an incredible moment in our history to see everyone rise to the challenge and care for our kids. Thank you to each and every one of you who made virtual learning possible. 

I am thrilled to start my eleventh year with St. Louis Public Schools in August, 2020, and I cannot wait to see each of you again, even if it is over a virtual meeting! I will be updating our school community regularly through phone, email, and website communications. Take a look at the principal's blog, The Patrick Henry Post, where we will be sharing the accomplishments of students and staff. Our first edition is a brief introduction to me, but I encourage you to take a look at all of the posts from the past school year to see what we are all about at Patrick Henry! Please email me or call the school to set up an appointment if you'd like to meet me in person or virtually: deborah.rogers@slps.org, 314.231.7284.

Thank you for choosing St. Louis Public Schools and Patrick Henry Downtown Academy for your child's education. Our mission is 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. We promise to pursue this mission for every child who comes through our doors every day. Thank you for partnering with us!
