Our Second Year Kindergarteners continually gather concrete information about their world. They're given ample space and time to manipulate objects and materials, and use all of their senses to explore, test, and experiment.
Students' investigations of their world take them out of Park's buildings and into the natural environment. The campus, a 100-acre hands-on classroom, features gardens, a pond, a thriving tributary, and woodland ecosystems.
To fully understand a complex time in history, third graders learn the points of view of Colonial Settlers, Native Americans, and Early Africans through extensive research — including building shelters modeled after those of Eastern Woodland Indians.
Park's motto, A Sound Mind in a Sound Body, manifests itself throughout the Middle School curriculum. The eighth grade physical education program is an elective-based curriculum that allows students to explore their varied interests – including canoeing.
Emphasis on choice and responsibility for one's own learning is in full evidence throughout students' final year. Senior Studio, pictured here, allows for advanced refinement of technique and integration of skills developed in earlier arts classes.

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.
