Baltimore Lab School (BLS) is an innovative learning community fostering scholarship and creativity in students with a variety of learning disabilities and ADHD. In an environment of inquiry and hands-on exploration, BLS students learn to advocate for themselves as they become engaged and compassionate members of a global society.

All BLS employees are dedicated to the education and growth of students with learning differences. Our staff are collaborative, caring professionals who provide the best education possible to our students. They achieve this through implementing an arts infused, project based curriculum that adheres to Common Core standards. All first year teachers at BLS are supported through a structured mentoring program. All full time employees receive medical, dental, and life insurance benefits. 

BLS strives to hire a diverse staff in order to prepare students to be global citizens by exposing them to people from different cultures and social groups, along with the opportunity to affirm students' cultural identities and enhance the learning environment. This can also provide employees with an opportunity to work, learn, and grow with a diverse group of people.
