Patterson High Patterson High School is a neighborhood high school with approximately 1,540 students, grades nine through twelve. Each academy has an academy principal (assistant principal), a counselor, and dedicated teachers. These academies operate as small schools within one building. All first time ninth graders are housed in the Success Academy. The students are scheduled with block scheduling to assist with the transition from middle to high school. During the spring of their ninth grade year, students select the academy they will attend for the remainder of their high school career. There are four career academies that service ninth grade repeaters, tenth, eleventh, and twelfth graders. Each academy has Career Technology Education Programs (CTE) and Career Pathways (CP). In addition to taking courses in their chosen career study, students must take courses that meet Maryland State Graduation and University of Maryland Systems requirements.

In 1993, Patterson, along with all the other Baltimore City public schools, left the Maryland Scholastic Association (MSA) to join the Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association (MPSSAA). The move meant that Baltimore City Public Schools would be able to compete with the rest of the state's public schools in a variety of sports arenas. Since the move, the Clippers have been to the state semi-finals in 1994, 1999, 2004 and to the quarter-finals in 1993, 1995, 1996, 1998 and 2001. In Basketball Patterson has joined other East Baltimore Giants Lake Clifton and Dunbar as they won the State 3A Championship in 2012.(http://www.baltimoresun.com/sports/high-school/bal-boys-basketball-aquille-carr-leads-patterson-to-its-first-state-championship-20120310,0,1942441.story) They used to have who many say is the most exciting player in the country Aquille Carr.
