The Park School of Baltimore is an independent, coeducational, non-sectarian, progressive school where students age four through grade twelve learn to think.
Since our founding in 1912, a passion for critical inquiry, a commitment to innovation, and the spirit and practice of inclusivity have guided our teaching and fostered a community of life-long learners.
It is our belief that for children to prepare for lives of achievement, of generosity, and of joy, their development must be supported in all realms — the intellectual, social, emotional, ethical, and physical.

School Reviews

One of a kind education. Unbelievable.
- Posted by Student/Alumni, 07/24/15
We have been in Park?''s Lower School for several years and have been very happy. Park''s progressive approach to education fosters kids who are interested in learning. They learn the basics I would expect on core subjects, and this is supplemented with deeper instruction in areas where they are interested. My kids are very different from each other (with different strengths and interests, one very artistic, the other more traditional science/math interests) and they both thrive. Both my kids want to go to school every day, and are disappointed when it is closed. Park School students learn how to take tests and have excellent outcomes. Last year, they had 22 National Merit semifinalists, which I understood to be among the highest of any coed independent school in MD. The list of colleges they attend is impressive. In addition, graduates seem to handle themselves with a maturity that bodes well for preparedness for life after college. Overall, we have been pleased wtih Park, the community, the teachers, and the learning environment.
