No. 1: McDonogh School Inc.( Doug Kapustin, Special to the Baltimore Sun / December 1, 2012 )
A coeducational private school for kindergarten through grade 12, McDonogh -- which snagged the No. 1 spot in the mid-size category for Baltimore's Top Workplaces-- is located on nearly 800 lush acres near Owings Mills. It was founded in 1873 as a farm school for poor boys. Its founder, John McDonogh, focused on character, and the school's modern-day mission statement follows suit: "Embracing diversity of background, culture, and thought, the school builds upon its founder's original mission to provide life-altering opportunities and to develop in students the will `to do the greatest amount of good.'
