Message from Our Administration
Welcome and thank you for visiting our website!
Patrick Henry School of Science and Arts (PHSSA), Virginia’s first charter elementary school, is beginning its eleventh year of operation. PHSSA is a Richmond Public School serving approximately 350 Richmond students. Our mission is to cultivate students’ maximum growth and develop stewardship through a premier environmental and arts education.
PHSSA's PTA is looking for some family members to serve on our Executive Board and on our committees! We'd love to help you find the volunteer opportunity that is right for you. If you're interested in learning more about these opportunities, please complete this form.
We are absolutely thrilled to share that PHSSA has been named a 2022 U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon School! The work to achieve this designation began over 15 years ago when a committed group of community members dreamed of a school with a focus on environmental education. We are very appreciative of every member of our community who has contributed time, energy, materials and funds to PHSSA over the years to help us grow and thrive.
