BALTIMORE — Two private high schools in Baltimore say their students appeared in a racially offensive photo on social media.

The Baltimore Sun reports Gilman School and Roland Park Country School identified their students in a photo that shows the teens in orange jumpsuits with a racial slur in the caption.

A third school, Mount Saint Joseph High School, said the photo was taken and captioned by one of its students.

Gilman and Roland Park administrators said in a statement that the people who took the pictures, wrote captions on them and shared them online are not the students in the photos.

Gilman Headmaster Henry Smyth wrote in a letter to school families that the incident has disappointed him.
