Mission & Beliefs
Baltimore Lab School is an innovative learning community fostering scholarship and creativity in students with unique strengths and diverse learning needs. In an environment of inquiry, hands-on exploration, and the arts, Baltimore Lab School students learn to advocate for themselves as they become engaged and compassionate members of a global society.
All children possess unique strengths, can learn, and must develop the ability to self-advocate.
Enthusiastic and creative staff must be supported to grow professionally by seeking out non-traditional, evidence-based teaching methods that best meet the needs of diverse learners.
The arts can be a vehicle for organizing the learning process, combining multi-sensory instruction, and experiential learning for students with learning disabilities.
Student success requires a safe and structured environment, founded on kindness, compassion, and the celebration of differences.
A GRADUATE OF BALTIMORE LAB WILL BE:
1. A critical thinker, problem solver, and communicator prepared to face the challenges of college life or workplace.
2. A responsible self-advocate who knows and employs individual strategies for success in college and/or career.
3. An engaged and compassionate global citizen who appreciates and respects the differences in others.
4. A lifelong learner who continues to seek new opportunities to grow.
