Baltimore District and Curriculum
As of 2012, the Baltimore County Public Schools have adopted the Common Core Standard curriculum which is a progressive educational program that starts at the elementary level and develops skills in Language Arts, Science, Social Studies, and Math as students move through the grades.
In Math, elementary school students learn the foundation of math skills including addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, decimals, and whole numbers. Middle school students will move on learning Algebra, Geometry and the theories of probability and statistics building on the skills they learned in elementary school. The application of math skills is what is emphasized at the high school level and students develop abilities in areas such as mathematical modeling as it is applied in real world pursuits.

The area that contains Fort McHenry has been administered by the National Park Service since 1933, and is the only area of the National Park System designated as a National Monument and a Historic Shrine.
