Page Mission This page is a place for Friends School of Baltimore Alumni to learn about alumni news and events, as well as maintain a connection with the School. We encourage those who visit and contribute to this page will adhere to the School's Statement of Respect which is: "At Friends School of Baltimore, our Quaker values and commitment to being an inclusive and constructive learning environment compel us to uphold the dignity of all individuals at all times. We practice George Fox’s belief that there is “that of God in everyone,” and hold ourselves accountable for the intention and impact of our behavior and speech. Friends School opposes and actively addresses hurtful language and behavior, especially that which demeans or discriminates based on race, ethnicity, ability, sex, gender, sexual orientation, religion, age or any attributes of identity. We believe that such acts are harmful to individuals, divisive within our community and corrosive to society. Friends School engages in open dialogue, embraces diverse perspectives, and celebrates difference. We also insist that all discourse, however controversial or well-intended, must always be respectful in tone, in content and, ultimately, must support the Quaker value of inclusivity." Thank you.

Lake Clifton Eastern High School , was a public high school located in the northeast area known as Clifton Park of Baltimore, Maryland. Originally called Lake Clifton High School , although it was commonly known as Lake High School or Lake Clifton, it is currently and officially named the Lake Clifton Campus .Along with Walbrook and Southwestern High Schools, LCHS was constructed in the early 1970s, and opened in September 1971, named after the Lake Clifton Reservoir and the Clifton Park neighborhood where it was located. Designed during the post-World War II "Baby Boom" years of the 1960s to relieve overcrowding in the city's public high schools, particularly nearby Baltimore City College , the third oldest public high school in America , and Eastern High School . Both had about 4,000 students each, twice their maximum capacity.In 1985, with the closure of EHS, the two schools merged, and LCHS was officially renamed Lake Clifton Eastern High School, however after the 2002-03 school year, LCEHS was also closed. Two smaller secondary schools, Heritage High School and the REACH! Partnership School occupy the campus.HistoryEarly yearsA reservoir (also known as an artificial lake or impoundment), named "Lake Clifton Reservoir", occupied the site and was in use until the late 1960s. The reservoir was drained and became the site for the high school's construction in 1970-71. Originally known as "Lake Clifton High School". At the time it was constructed, the school's property area of 441.11 acres (178.51 ha) made it the largest physical plant high school on the East Coast of the United States. In Lake Clifton's 2002 yearbook, it states that LCEHS "was, and perhaps remains, the largest physical plant high school in the nation." The cost of constructing and equipping LCHS was approximately $17 million in 1970, which adjusting for inflation, would be approximately $99,258,764.27 in 2010. The school was designed to hold 4,800 students.
