Independent schools in Maryland are committed to providing students with a high quality education, a variety of extracurricular activities, and skills to promote character building.
Gilman has a history of being a community school, and character and the desire to lead develop best through action.
At Gilman, boys at all ages participate in community service projects, collecting non-perishable food items for the Donald Bentley Food Pantry and toys and clothing to benefit Echo House, making peanut butter sandwiches for the homeless, shooting basket in Hoops for Heart, reading books to raise money for tsunami victims, supporting the annual American Red Cross Blood Drive, or participating myriad other activities throughout the school year.
You know about the fierce spirit of competition that drives the Gilman-McDonogh football rivalry. But do you also know about the noble spirit of cooperation that unites these two historic schools?
Since 2009, Boys’ Latin has held an all day, all school service event — Service Learning Day. The whole day is set aside for all students, grades K-12, to work together on service projects with a single theme.
Each May, Boys’ Latin 8th graders embark on “Go Learn!,” a day in which they visit local businesses and institutions for a hands-on view of entrepreneurship, teamwork, character, communication, and academic-based skills needed and cultivated at work on a daily basis.
To really know boys is to know how they think – that they respond best to experiential, hands-on learning that appeals to the different senses, involving action and movement.
