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.

“The energy here at BLS is infectious. Students are eager to learn and show genuine interest in the skills they are learning. They are not afraid to make mistakes, laugh about them, and correct them.”  — Mr. Allen, High School Math Teacher 

All BLS employees are dedicated to the education and growth of students with learning differences. Our staff is a group of collaborative, caring professionals who provide the best education possible for 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 are eligible to receive medical, dental, and life insurance benefits.

“My favorite part of BLS is definitely the students. they are so kind and excited to learn. They make my job meaningful and enjoyable.” — Ms. Fabian, Middle School English Language Arts Teacher

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.
