The Community School of Maryland campus extends over 9 acres in a park-like setting with ample opportunity for exploration and learning. In addition to classrooms, the sprawling campus has an occupational therapy center, a speech and language center, and a full-sized gymnasium. Specially outfitted areas have been designed to provide specialized academic experiences, employment training and transition training. The campus has structured areas for play and learning tailored to the needs of younger students and learning areas devoted to transition-related educational experiences for older students. The school’s proximity to suburbs and cities allows for community involvement and the opportunity to apply the functional skills that are developed in the classroom.
