Maryvale not only introduced me to some of my best friends for life, but also prepared me for college like no other school could. The teachers are understanding and do a great job of catering to your academic abilities. I was also offered many opportunities to take trips to different workplaces, and observe different jobs, to better learn what I'd like to do in the future. There are tons of highly ranked sports teams to become apart from, and numerous after-school clubs and activities. Maryvale also offers many service opportunities, allowing each girl to grow her views on the world. Each grade of girls at Maryvale has the same qualities, kind, respectful, smart, and strong. Whether it's leadership, opportunities, academics, extracurriculars, or college-readiness, Maryvale has it all.

Maryvale has an incredible history and has always offered excellence in its educational programs. Students have individual options as well as a strong base of required subjects. It genuinely prepares alumnae to become successful life-long learners. Maryvale is, by far, the best private school option in the Baltimore area!
