Survey of Midtown Families

Thank you for taking a few minutes to complete our survey. We are a small (yet growing) and energetic group of parents looking to reignite the partnership between Mt. Royal Elementary/Middle School and the surrounding neighborhoods. We are looking for a vibrant alternative to paying private school tuition and relying on our number coming up in a charter school lottery. Whether you have school age kids or not, we hope you will consider joining us in this endeavor to make Mt. Royal the best school in Baltimore. This short survey will help us gather information about the families in the surrounding area and gauge the level of interest. To learn more and contact us, visit us at

Mt. Royal Elementary/Middle School is a hidden gem in the City of Baltimore and it is right in our backyard. Did you know that Mt. Royal has an Arts Integration Program, is one of a few city-wide Ingenuity Programs for middle schools, and is part of the Middle School Partnership Program with McDonogh School? Mt. Royal has a wide variety of extra-curricular activities and many opportunities for the community to get more involved. Be on the look out for increased marketing about activities going on at Mt. Royal. Learn more about Mt. Royal at
