Our Community

We Are Pimlico Proud

Our school has served the Park Heights community since 1910, when the school opened as Pimlico #223. We are very proud of this community tradition. Generations of students have attended Pimlico, and we have been a community anchor for two centuries.

Today, we continue this legacy as a charter school operated by the Baltimore Curriculum Project (BCP), Maryland’s largest charter school program. BCP began running charter schools in 2005 and manages five charter schools within the Baltimore City Public Schools.

The Pimlico Way extends to our location approximately 1.0 mile from Pimlico Race Track, home of the Preakness. Our mascot, a thoroughbred, honors the Preakness, the second of the three “Triple Crown” events for thoroughbred horse racing.

We have a rich legacy of community programs to support our students and their families. Our school is the lead partner with Park Heights Renaissance, which rehabilitates and revitalizes our community. Park Heights Renaissance provides career development, educational opportunities in entrepreneurship, finance, fundraising, health awareness, and more.
