Welcome to Patrick Henry Principal's Corner
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.
Though the 2020-2021 and 2021-2022 school years brought so many challenges with COVID, we remain a strong community of family, educators, and partners all dedicated to our students' mental, physical, and academic well being. 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!
