We feel so fortunate to have our daughter at Wilkes. She gets to explore interesting subjects with different teachers and also gets to explore the city in a way no other school in Baltimore allows.

We fell in love with the school when we saw the art room and the chalkboards.  We stayed in love when our kids learned to write in cursive, to plan out their annual summer reading and math homework, to read sheet music, and to build a hydraulic pump.

Our daughter knows every teacher and every student at Wilkes. The small class sizes and subject-specific teachers create a really warm and intellectually rich environment. She is becoming such an interesting and confident person thanks to this supportive, smart and creative culture.

I think that the most important thing a school can do is to help children love learning and feel confident in themselves as learners and as people, and this is perhaps the biggest strength of the school.
