This is the turret of the original school building of the Glenelg Country School, located in Howard County, Maryland. The title “Dragon’s Lair” comes from the school’s mascot, the dragon. Of course now Glenelg boasts beautiful modern facilities, but somehow all the structures have been done in keeping with the atmosphere of the glorious old home you see here which housed the first classrooms over half a century ago. A wonderful, nurturing but tough academic climate, small classroom sizes, outstanding faculty and staff. And the campus itself, as you can see, is a thing of beauty!!
