Welcome to Padonia International Elementary School

Volunteer Training

Padonia International School is nestled in a diverse multicultural neighborhood in Cockeysville, Maryland. Students at Padonia come from over 30 foreign countries. The many cultural experiences that our students and their families bring to school every day enrich our learning environment. Almost twenty five per cent of our student population participates in ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) services at some point during the school day.

Our school follows the same curriculum as other Baltimore County elementary schools, but our name has been changed to reflect the unique cultural atmosphere we enjoy at Padonia. The Padonia International Elementary School professional learning community is dedicated to providing a quality, comprehensive educational program designed to address the needs of a diverse student population. We commit ourselves to promoting understanding, appreciation, and respect for cultural diversity and learning.
