Gilman School

5407 Roland Ave, Baltimore, MD 21210

Founded as The Country School for Boys of Baltimore City by Anne Galbraith Carey, a mother seeking a strong school for her sons, Gilman was established as the nation's first country day school. In addition to enrolling students from all parts of the city, the school accepts boys of varying religious, cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds. Gilman provides a solid preparatory curriculum supplemented by many electives. During the lower school years (grades K-5), the program combines a focus on the fundamental skills of reading, writing and math with projects in such areas as science, music, art and woodworking. The middle school (grades 6-8) supplements content learning with instruction in study skills and organization, note taking, problem solving and communication. Boys in the upper school (grades 9-12) have increased scheduling flexibility to pursue interests and determine academic strengths. The school extends its reach to the broader Baltimore community through community service programs and coordinate classes with two nearby girls' schools, Bryn Mawr School and Roland Park Country School. Lower school children engage in mandatory community service projects, while middle schoolers complete 20 hours of service and upper school students devote at least 50 hours of successive involvement to one project. Athletic participation is compulsory at the upper school level.
