Maryland School services pre-kindergarten through eighth grade students. Located in the heart of central Phoenix,
Maryland was constructed in 1954 during the post-WW II housing boom. While renovations and remodels have ensured students benefit from the technological innovations of the 21st century, the school maintains its historic charm. Classrooms are large to accommodate varied groupings and activities, and nearly every classroom enjoys the benefits of large windows and natural sunlight, which research has shown increases achievement. All classrooms use SMART Board technology and students have access to 1:1 technology use for their learning.
Maryland boasts a long-standing relationship with the community, and several staff members were former Maryland students themselves!
