Shadow Days

Please contact Ms. Pugh (mpugh3@bcps.org) to schedule a shadow day for your child. This is a great way for students to get a true feel for the environment of the academy and Lansdowne High School.

A shadow day is when your child is paired up with one of our students and follows that student during their classes for one half of a school day. Lansdowne High School shadow days are by appointment only, from November 12-16.

A parent/legal guardian must come to the front office with the student and present a driver’s license to the front office secretary. You will tell us who is picking up your child at that time, so that we know who to release your child to. That person must also present a driver's license when picking up your child. We will not release your child without verification.

If your child is a BCPS student, then please have them bring their BCPS One card ID to wear during the shadow day. Non BCPS students will receive a guest sticker ID badge.

AM shadow students should arrive at 7:40 AM and should be picked up at 10:40 AM.

PM shadow students should arrive at 10:45 AM or 11:15 AM depending on the shadow schedule and should be picked up at 1:40 PM.

Some PM shadow sessions will include a half hour lunch period. These PM shadow students may bring a lunch or cash for lunch (middle school lunch ID numbers will not work here). AM shadows will not attend lunch during the visit.

Please email mpugh3@bcps.org or call 443-809-1415 to reach our front office for more information.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who can apply?

Those Baltimore county resident students currently grade 8 or 9 who are NOT zoned for Lansdowne High School may apply to any of the four academies. LHS zoned students will elect to be in one of the three academies when they enroll at LHS. See which high school you are zoned for by visiting http://www.bcps.org/apps/Boundaries.

Will transportation to and from Lansdowne High School be provided?

Students accepted into a Lansdowne High School magnet program and are zoned for a Western Baltimore county public high school (Milford, Pikesville, Randallstown, New town, Owings Mills, Franklin, Woodlawn, and Catonsville) can take a magnet school bus from their zoned high school to Lansdowne High School and back each day. Transportation to and from their zoned high school is not provided. Students zoned for the other Baltimore county public high schools must provide their own transportation to and from Lansdowne High school.
