The transportation system at McLean School was established to aid the forward movement of the school. As we continue to add new families at all levels, it is necessary for everyone to understand the reasons behind our system and participate in making it work positively and productively. Our ability to add the Upper School by expanding the building to increase enrollment in 2001 depended on a new condition in our lease with our landlord, the Board of Education of Montgomery County. The school agreed to a school-wide transportation plan that would eliminate carpool lines and reduce vehicular traffic coming into the neighborhood. We are obligated to require all students to be transported to and from school by bus.

Departure and arrival times are approximate due to the uncertainty of traffic patterns, and can vary by up to 10 minutes. Please be at least 10 minutes early.
