The reading experience begins when young children find themselves immersed in a literary world. In the Lower School, we teach our students to use multiple reading strategies so that they become strong, joyful, independent readers.
Upper School student tutors staff and run the Michael Cardin ’85 Writing Center, working with Lower, Middle, and Upper School writers in a variety of settings. Here, a student tutor works with a fourth grader on developing her writing.
Through varsity, JV, and freshman/sophomore teams in the Upper School, Park emphasizes a balanced approach valuing teamwork, sportsmanship, competitive spirit — and passion. (Photo: Girls' Soccer caps undefeated season with conference championship!)
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 students raise questions, engage in research, and collaborate with scientists and policy-makers from around the world. Follow the link below to learn more about our students' ongoing permafrost and toxicology studies in the Arctic.

Founded in 1912, The Park School of Baltimore is an independent, gender-inclusive, 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
