For five years, Playworks has partnered with MPS elementary schools to transform school climate for more than 15,000 students. Their research on programming helps to make our elementary school playgrounds safe and inclusive, decreasing conflict and transition times from the playground to the classroom.

Over 95% of principals who have had Playworks programming want to continue it, saying that both students and staff are happier and students are more engaged in the classroom. We are excited about and support, Playworks’ aim to empower all MPS elementary schools with the philosophy and systems to improve school climate in order to enhance learning for our student.
