Although the school has gone through leadership changes over the years, it remains true to its mission of providing an arts based, experiential learning environment for students who are bright, but a traditional classroom setting gets in the way of their learning. The results truly speak for themselves. Not only have students moved on to some top High Schools in the area (including Calvert Hall, Seton, and Carver Performing Arts), graduates are doing well in college and life. Grads are attending a variety of colleges, including McDaniel, Goucher, St. Mary's, and UMBC locally. For my child, Baltimore Lab was the perfect place to understand strengths, weaknesses, and develop a strategy with the confidence to execute it and achieve success. Students for whom Baltimore Lab is the right place don't fit neatly in any box, neither does the school. The Academic Club process delivers amazing results that serve students from their elementary years into college. Creativity, Creative Problem Solving, Self-Awareness, and Self-Advocacy are welcomed, developed, and enhanced at every grade level. You have to visit the school and/or talk with alumni to truly understand the gem it is.
