Partnerships across grade levels — including Fourth Grade/Kindergarten Reading Partners — create bonds among students that can last throughout their time at Park and beyond.
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.
Whether a student has a passion for science or the arts; whether they tend to dip their toes or jump in head first, Park's curriculum and entire environment is designed to build on each student's strengths and help them become their best authentic selves.
Park's motto, A Sound Mind in a Sound Body, manifests itself throughout the Middle School curriculum. The eighth grade physical education program is elective-based — allowing students to explore their varied interests, including canoeing on Park's pond.
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
