Greenspring Montessori School  Lutherville, MD

Greenspring Montessori School has served the greater Baltimore area since 1962 and has embarked on a facilities-driven Capital Project and Campaign to strengthen and enhance its educational environment through major improvements to its historic seven-acre campus. 

Greenspring presently serves 250 students, toddler through grade 9. Under KSC's complete guidance and support in all areas of the project, the school's compelling obligation to update and improve upon its beloved but aging facilities is underway. Ultimately, the outcome will give rise to a safe, healthy, eco-friendly, cost effective, master planned campus that is wholly responsive in size, scale, order, and flow to the needs of Greenspring’s children, teachers, staff, and parents.
