Not quite an official city, but rather a "census-designated place," Severna Park ranks as one of the country's top spots to find quality public schools. A diminutive community bordering the Chesapeake Bay, Severna Park is just an hour's drive from downtown Baltimore and its many big city amenities, including the preeminent Johns Hopkins University.
This coastal hamlet's school district, Anne Arundel County Public Schools, has 10 Blue Ribbon schools, and 80 percent of its graduates attend a two or four-year college or university. District schools maintain an admirably low student-to-teacher ratio: Classes in six through eighth grade average 20 students; for high school classes, there are no more than 23 students.
Severna Park's elementary schools consistently rank amongst the state's highest on the Maryland School Assessments. Severna Park High Schoolis known for its rigorous academics, but it doesn't rest on its scholarly laurels. The high school has won 83 state athletic championships, and hosts its popular annual musical revue, "Rock N' Roll Revival." High school students can further round out their education by joining after school clubs that include everything from calculus to fly fishing to Amnesty International.
