Atlas Public Schools is a new place-based, diverse by design elementary school in St. Louis City’s Central Corridor opening in the fall of 2021. Atlas will open with grades K-1, and grow an additional grade each year. Atlas will ultimately grow to a K-5 elementary school in 2025 and work in partnership with the St. Louis community to fulfill our mission.
The mission of Atlas Public Schools is to educate the whole child by combining a rigorous academic program with real-world, place-based learning experiences so all students will thrive in middle school, high school, and beyond.
At Atlas, we envision a time when all students in St. Louis have the skills and habits needed to be successful in the 21st century, and where St. Louis is a model of a flourishing, diverse, and empowered community. We believe that high quality public schools will be the catalyst for community transformation that will result in a thriving city.
