Thanks to Vernal Coleman and Style Weekly for keeping the Patrick Henry School for Science and Arts story alive. We are being kept under the thumb of the Richmond Public Schools, and financial struggles will take us down if media support and political support don't persist for these children. As in most cases, sadly money comes down to it in public education, and this charter is yes (and I really don't like the word) "fledgling."

Joy Simpson, President
Patrick Henry PTA
