Park School Master Plan

Baltimore, MD

Park School, a non-sectarian progressive co-ed day school, selected BGA to evaluate the current state of their 57-year old campus located on a meandering and steep wooded site. Working collaboratively with the school, BGA developed a Statement of Needs which analyzed how well the facilities support the school’s mission and identified potential new facilities. A main priority of the Master Plan will be a new middle school with larger classrooms that provide a flexible environment, enabling project-based learning. A new cafeteria, café, and school store will allow engagement with the outdoors and views to the pond—a signature element of the site. The creation of a highly visible designated main entrance needed for campus security and visitor wayfinding is also planned. The lower and upper schools will expand into the vacated Middle School space, renovated to gain additional science and robotics labs, more common space, and quiet study areas.
