The National Academy Foundation School of Baltimore, also known as NAF, is a middle/high school located on the historic Dunbar campus in East Baltimore. We serve Baltimore City public school students in grades 6 – 12. We occupy two buildings on the campus; one building, the historic Thomas G. Hayes building, houses our middle school students. We refer to this building/school as NAF Middle School.Our other building, the historic Dunbar Middle School building, houses our high school students. We refer to this building/school as NAF High School. Both buildings occupy a large city block. Having two buildings makes us unique as many other middle/high schools in Baltimore are confined to one space. Having two beautiful buildings doubles our resources – we have two auditoriums, two gyms, two cafeterias, and a great deal of space to provide our students with a quality education.
While we have two separate buildings, we are one school, one vision – achievement! We seek to simultaneously prepare students for college as well as careers beyond their secondary experience.
A college and career, academy-based, public school dedicated to students’ achievement in academics, citizenship, and athleticism in a transformative learning environment.
We strive to be a community of learners – a community of outstanding individuals. We believe all of students can learn and achieve at high levels. We expect that each of our students will succeed. Our goal is that 100% of our students obtain an industry certification and are accepted into college.“One School • One Vision •Achievement”National Academy Foundation
