Grades 1-8 have a full complement of subject classes, including Spanish, Handwork, Eurythmy, Music, Art, and Games and PE classes. Our beautiful, hillside campus in northern Baltimore City includes woodlands, fields, and garden activity areas. We are adjacent to Cylburn Arboretum.

Baltimore is vibrant and culturally-rich, offering world-class music, art and restaurants; yet it still has a small town feel. New York, Washington and Philadelphia are a day trip away. Surrounded by the richness of the Chesapeake Bay, it is easily accessible to mountains and ocean beaches.
