Monday, September 14, 2015

The highly anticipated St. Charles High School opened in the Fall of 2014 in the heart of St. Charles, MD. In September 2015, Washington Post writer Michele Lerner wrote a feature article for the paper’s Real Estate section, focusing on the impact of good schools on the communities around them. Her research extended throughout the Washington, DC region, examining the impact and attraction of strong schools and school systems in Fairfax and Montgomery Counties as well as in Washington, DC, and featured a family in St. Charles as well as St. Charles High School.

The article explores the importance of good schools, such as St. Charles High School, on one’s decision to buy a home as well as the effect of good schools on home values and pricing. The article can be viewed at Washington Post School Impact Article.

St. Charles High School includes programs on environmental and natural resource management, technology, and current issues related to these fields of study. Additionally, St. Charles High School students have cutting edge learning experiences such as a digital classroom, Science on a Sphere and Telepresence technology. Science on a Sphere was co-developed by NASA and provides students with visual instruction about science, the Earth and the environment.

St. Charles High School has been a key reason for St. Charles’ growing popularity. St. Charles, now the best-selling new home community in Southern Maryland, is committed to quality neighborhood schools, which are the foundation of a thriving planned community. That's why the St. Charles Companies donated land for ten neighborhood schools in St. Charles, including seven elementary schools, one middle school and two high schools, and will continue to provide school sites as we plan future communities. Whether your student is starting pre-school or starting college, St. Charles is committed to helping them achieve a quality education.
