About The Mount Washington School

The Mount Washington School is proud to be a 2011 U.S. Department of Education Blue Ribbon School! Teachers prepare children to succeed in their local and global communities with three governing principles: Academic Excellence, Building Community, and Citizenship. Since 2011, the school has been divided into two buildings, an upper school and a lower school, allowing the expansion to K-8. Unlike other Baltimore City Middle Schools, Mount Washington does not participate in school choice - meaning only children living within the school zone are served. Middle School at Mount Washington includes a rigorous all-honors curriculum, as well as the only certified International Baccalaureate Middle Years World School Programme in Baltimore City. With a highly engaged PTO, School Family Council, and numerous community partners, students at Mount Washington enjoy a wide variety of after-school clubs and extracurricular options.
