The REACH! Partnership School is a public charter high school located in the northeast area known as Clifton Park of Baltimore, Maryland. REACH! is operated by Civic Works, a Baltimore nonprofit affiliated with the AmeriCorps program.[2]

The school shared the campus of the former Lake Clifton Eastern High School campus with Heritage High School from 2010 until the latter's closure after the 2014–2015 school year.[3]

For the 2019–2020 school year, as part of Baltimore City's 21st Century Schools initiative, REACH! was scheduled to relocate to the nearby Fairmount-Harford building, at 2555 Harford Road, previously occupied by the defunct Harbor City High School.[4] The school's new location was originally built to serve as Clifton Park Junior High in 1924.[5]

The school offers vocational education through its CTE Pathways in either "Construction & Development" (carpentry or HVAC) or "Health & Biosciences" (Nursing assistant or Pharmacy technician). It also offers two Advanced Placement courses in English and History & social sciences. In addition, the school hosts an Army JROTC program.[1]
