This school prepares teachers for the elementary public schools
of Baltimore City. Since it was established in 1900, it has prepared
more than 400 teachers for the Baltimore School System.

The course of study is two years in length and is based upon an
approved four year high school course.

The required subjects include psychology, history of education,
theory of teaching, hygiene, manual training, physical training, draw-
ing, music and the special methods of teaching history, geography,
nature study, language, grammar and composition, reading and lit-

One-fourth of the course, one-half year, is devoted to practice
teaching under criticism. During this time the pupil teacher receives
compensation a.t the rate of one dollar per day.

The Board of Public School Commissioners awards a diploma to
those students who complete the course in a satisfactory manner.

Graduates of this school are exempt from the academic examina-
tion prescribed by the Department of Education for untrained can-
didates. All candidates for positions in the elementary schools of
Baltimore must pass a medical examination, and must also pass a pro-
fessional examination in all the subjects named above except manual
training, music, physical training, hygiene and drawing. In this exam-
ination a general average of at least 75% with no mark below 50%
is the requirement.

Candidates who meet the above requirements and who show that
they can teach and discipline are made Substitutes of Class I for one
year, the salary for this period being $600.00. If the work of the candi-
date for this probationary year is found satisfactory, he is elected at a
salary of $700.00 for the first year, and receives annual increases as
prescribed by the rules of the Board of Education.

Tuition is free to residents of Baltimore. Other students are re-
quired to pay an annual tuition fee of about $42.00. No charge is
made for books or other material required in the course.
