School Open Houses Winter 2018

A school is like a family, each one has its own feel and environment. Will your child and family feel comfortable there? Learning is much easier when everyone feels at home. Visiting a school is the best way to decide if that school meets the needs of your child. Take advantage of the following open house dates at Maryland schools. Don't see a school you want to visit, or the open house is over? Don't let that stop you, give admissions a call and they will take you on a tour and answer all of your questions.
