Gardenville Elementary School is a community school. As part of our school culture, we welcome parents, guardians, and all community stakeholders to support our students. We believe in providing students with rigorous instruction in an encouraging and supportive atmosphere. Gardenville Elementary partners with the Family League of Baltimore and the Boy and Girl Scouts of America to provide resources for our students and their families. With the collaboration and collective efforts of staff, parents, and community, our goal is to support each student’s academic and creative success and to develop responsible and productive citizens.
