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 website!
Patrick Henry School of Science and Arts, Virginia’s first charter elementary school, is beginning its seventh year of operation. Patrick Henry School of Science and Arts is a Richmond Public School serving approximately 330 Richmond students. Our mission is to cultivate students’ maximum growth and develop stewardship through a premier environmental and arts education.
Our 1st annual Run for the Arts! This fundraiser is scheduled to happen in Forest Hill Park on Friday, May 5 from 10 am -1 pm. Classes will walk down to the lake in Forest Hill Park and begin our run for the arts. Each time a student passes a station on the lake, he or she will be given a stamp on a card. Each stamp equals one donation per lap. Students will run/walk for 30 minutes. After the run we will have a PHSSA picnic at the park.
We will need as many volunteers as possible to make this event run smoothly. It is our goal to have parents line the lake to ensure students are safe at all times.
If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. McGrath (firstname.lastname@example.org).
