What’s after Govans?

Middle and high schools are not zoned by home address like elementary schools in Baltimore City, therefore students will go through the Middle School Choice process in January of their 5th grade year. Middle school options that are still in the 21212 zip code include Roland Park Elementary/Middle, Leith Walk Elementary/Middle, and Walter P Carter Elementary/Middle. The school choice liaison at Govans will help guide families in this process.
