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.
The school's core values, rooted in the progressive educational philosophy of John Dewey, sustain an unshakable belief in children's capacity to enjoy learning, to act rationally, and to grow when inspired by highly qualified, caring teachers.

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
