INDEPENDENT SCHOOLS GUIDE 2010 3 RICH DENNISONThe athletic complex at Roland Park Country School in Baltimore features a 14,000-square-foot roof whose plants absorb radiant energy so it doesn’t enter the building.

4 INDEPENDENT SCHOOLS GUIDE 2010 When About our schools guide children lead The following pages list independent primary and secondary schools across the state of Maryland. They include the way schools both secular and religious that are not part of the state’s public school systems. The list is based on infor- mation provided by the Web site of the Maryland State Department of Edu- cation (MSDE) and by the schools themselves. In many cases we talked to school representatives; in some cases we relied on school Web sites. Our list does not include independent schools that offer only nursery school or kindergarten classes. However, those schools are listed by county on the MSDE Web site, www.maryland- publicschools.org. The phone number at the department is (410) 767-0100. Tuition figures are the latest available. Many schools had not set fees for 2010-2011 when we gathered this in- formation, and schools often charge extra fees that they do not consider part of tuition. We recommend that readers contact schools directly to check on tuition and to ask about ad- ditional fees, enrollment policies and waiting lists.
