Baltimore International Academy West opened in the 2019-20 school year, serving students in pre-k, kindergarten, and 6th grade. For the 2020-21 school year, it will also serve 7th grade and will ultimately serve students from pre-k to 8th grade, offering full immersion in the elementary grades and partial immersion in the middle grades. Like Baltimore International Academy, the new school will offer Spanish, Chinese, Arabic, Russian, and French language tracks.

The Baltimore City School of Board Commissioners is considering recommendations as part of the review of the operator of this school. The process by which operator schools are reviewed is called operator renewal and is part of the district’s Annual Review of Schools. Operator contracts can be renewed for three, five or eight-year terms or could be recommended for non-renewal and possible closure. Based on this review the school operator is being recommended to continue its contract for a three-year team. To learn about these recommendations or for recommendations for other schools as well as how to provide feedback to inform the Board’s decision-making process, please visit the City Schools Annual Review of Schools page.
