Lower School

Calvert School | Baltimore, MD

The Lower School, which contains pre-K through fourth grade, is home to an assembly hall, two gymnasiums, the Luetkemeyer Planetarium, a 14,000–item library, and the primary wing. The Lower School expansion center focused on accommodating an increase in classrooms and academic support space to help the school achieve its mission of not only teaching the “3Rs” but also helping students develop creative problem solving skills.
