Lifelong Friendships Are Built Here

Baltimore Lab School believes that a happy, balanced social life is integral to every child’s emotional well-being and an instrumental building block for long term success. From the earliest grades, we help foster the communication, collaboration, and celebrations that are the basis for healthy friendships. Our school calendar is brimming with opportunities for children and teens to take a break from the classroom and explore new interests with their peers. While some of these activities have a learning or performance component, others simply encourage our students to relax, engage, and simply HAVE FUN!
