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
