Registration for 2017-2018

We are currently recruiting families to join Roots & Branches School for the upcoming school year. As we plan for next year and beyond, we need to make sure we enroll students whose families support our mission. We will continue to accept applications for new students for all grades. We expect to enroll sixty kindergarten students and twenty first graders. We anticipate some limited availability for transfer students in other grades. We currently have a waiting list for grades two through five. We will accept names from the waiting list if parents of accepted students decide to enroll somewhere else or if current families move away.

We encourage our families to spread the word about our school to friends and families who embrace our progressive approach to education. Interested families are invited to call and schedule a personal tour and to participate in upcoming family events.

If you have made other plans for next year, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can effectively plan classes and staff.

Baltimore Sun features Roots and Branches School

The Baltimore Sun highlighted the science work our Oaks Grove has been doing with Mr. Keith Young of Ecotek. Our students have been focusing on a different area of science each week, culminating in an informational display of units and measures, biology, chemistry, and many areas of science.
