Committed to the pursuit of excellence, we are a citywide college preparatory institution with selective admissions and an emphasis on the liberal arts and sciences. As the IB world school for Baltimore City Public Schools, we provide academic programs that incorporate communication, intercultural awareness, and inquiry-based learning. By offering every student rigorous studies and high caliber extracurricular and co-curricular activities, we aspire for our students to demonstrate excellence and to succeed in the best colleges. We strive for our students to become committed and responsible citizens active in their local and global communities.

Our school attracts a diverse student body of approximately 1,200 talented, ambitious students and their families from all over the city. As parents, we are committed to ensuring that our children receive a rich,high-quality education in a positive learning environment.
