Patrick Henry School of Science and Arts (PHSSA) is a kindergarten through fifth grade (K-5) school based on meaningful parent, educator, and community involvement. The school provides the children of our diverse community with an academically rigorous science- and arts-based curriculum that emphasizes environmental awareness and social responsibility.
Welcome and thank you for visiting our new website!
Patrick Henry School of Science and Arts is beginning its sixth year of operation. We are Virginia’s first charter elementary school. We currently serve approximately 300 Richmond students from kindergarten through 5th grade. Our mission is to cultivate students’ maximum growth and develop stewardship through a premier environmental and arts education.
Why PHSSA students love their school
We are looking for used and new cans of paint in all colors. Primary colors and paint with satin finish are a plus! We are in need of additional materials to proceed with this exciting project to brighten up our walls:
--Paint rollers + brushes
--Gift cards to Lowe’s or Home Depot or monetary donations
Drop off donations at PHSSA office.
