Graceland Park/O’Donnell Heights EMS Opened Last Year
This Baltimore City Public school is one of two (2) new duplicate 92,000 sf Net Zero buildings. The two facilities were completed during the COVID-19 pandemic and are located within two miles of each other. Each school is distinct with individual exterior palettes, however both facilities have identical footprints.
The schools are equipped with student gardens, outdoor classrooms, rooftop solar labs, and vegetative roofs. The below quote is from a current student at Graceland.
“I’m really excited to come back. I love being at school. I’m kind of a nerd. I love school, and I love how welcome they make me feel in here, I don’t get distracted and I’m learning. They help me build my skills and everything.”
Rachel Arana, Eighth-Grader at Graceland Park, per CBS Baltimore
