To fully understand a complex time in history, third graders learn the points of view of colonial settlers, Native Americans, and enslaved Africans through extensive research — including building shelters modeled after those of Eastern Woodland Indians.
Whether a student has a passion for science or the arts; whether they tend to dip their toes or jump in head first, Park's curriculum and entire environment is designed to build on each student's strengths and help them become their best authentic selves.
Park's motto, A Sound Mind in a Sound Body, manifests itself throughout the Middle School curriculum. The eighth grade physical education program is elective-based — allowing students to explore their varied interests, including canoeing on Park's pond.
In 9th and 10th Grade, students have the opportunity to put science in the context of real life through authentic inquiry and central, culminating experiences, including studying the digital analysis of motion on Challenge Course initiatives.
At Park, the arts are an essential part of our daily lives. They frame our experience of the world, serve as vehicles for personal expression, and enhance our exploration of all of the academic disciplines.
Park's Mock Trial team has won four State Championships. Excelling in this head-to-head competition requires understanding of the law; excellent listening, speaking, reading, and reasoning skills; communication and cooperation; and focused determination.

Founded in 1912, The Park School of Baltimore is an independent, coeducational, non-sectarian, progressive Pre-K through 12 school located on a 100-acre campus minutes from the city. Park students are inquisitive, comfortable in their own skin, show and earn respect, and are mature beyond their years. They are bright, motivated, curious, and love to explore — always asking "What if?" and "How and why?" and "Why not?" By immersing students in a challenging curriculum and surrounding them with a dedicated, impassioned faculty, we create an environment that enables them to become their best authentic selves. Having experienced diverse perspectives and positive expectations, Park students venture into the world with the knowledge, the confidence, and the skills they need to become successful adults.Learn More about Our Values
