Welcome to Pleasant Plains Elementary

Our school is made up of the most caring and professional staff that you can possibly find in the state of Maryland. Each of the teachers that work at Pleasant Plains Elementary School (PPES) are highly qualified teachers, and often have additional certifications in other areas related to Education. Each member of the PPES staff is dedicated to both children and the community that surrounds Pleasant Plains. Programs such as the school play, “Annie”, the “Kick, Punt, Pass Competition”, Reading and STEM Fair Nights, or the student- ran broadcast studio are just a few of the many events that help bring the students, parents, staff and community together for one great cause - student achievement!!

About Our School

Founded in 1958, Pleasant Plains Elementary School has been serving the surrounding community, feeding from Oakleigh Road on the east, Aigburth Road on the west, north from Deanwood Road and south of Joppa Road. The population is economically diverse with families residing in individual homes, townhomes, and apartments. Our mission is to provide a multicultural environment that nurtures academic development, promotes life-long learning, creativity, and social responsibility, in which all students will excel. Students work hard to follow the Panther Promise, which is to be respectful, responsible, safe, and prepared. Our school has many opportunities for after school clubs and Talent Centers. Each year, over 100 students participate in the school musical, the annual “Kick, Punt, Pass Competition”, Reading, Math, and STEM Fair Nights, and a Broadcast Studio that utilizes students on and off camera to run the daily broadcast. These are just a few of the many events that help bring students, parents, staff, and the community together for one great cause - student achievement!
