Community, Inclusion, and Equity

Gilman School is committed to our students

Gilman School's commitment to diversity is founded on the belief that our community is strengthened by the vibrant exchange that occurs when individuals with different backgrounds, abilities and heritages share their various perspectives with one another.

Gilman is a community school

Being a community school means that we seek to understand the needs of the city and local areas, not least so that we can understand where we might be able to add expertise and resources to solve city problems.

Gilman is currently doing this in several ways. We support B.E.S.T., Baltimore Educational Scholarship Trust, an organization that looks to work with talented students in order to place them in one of the many fine independent schools in the city and county. We sponsor our own summer Learning Camp and are a site location for Bridges, an innovative leadership program for Baltimore City youth. We participate with the Middle Grades Partnership. Our goal is to find ways to build relationships with colleagues, bring teachers together and to partner our students with peers from different schools.
