Welcome to the Ingenuity Project

Our middle school program is a full-time citywide program offered to academically gifted city students at Roland Park Middle School #233, Mount Royal Middle School #66, and Hamilton Middle School #236. Ingenuity offers advanced mathematics and science classes during the school day.

Our high school program is a full-time citywide program offered to academically gifted students at the Baltimore Polytechnic Institute. Ingenuity high school students take advanced placement courses, work with scientist mentors to develop independent research projects, and submit their work to national competitions.
