This school is mediocre, the teachers put forth minimal effort in educating the students.The teachers seem to be more focused on discipline rather than education. Some of the teachers are clearly there to collect a pay check, they have poor attitudes and they're verbally abusive to their students. One of the Staff members even agreed that some of the teachers do have nasty Attitudes.

A gem in Prince George's County. This very multicultural school is full of teachers who genuinely care about the students. The ESOL and Special Education programs are without peer. The Administration is involved and strict but fair. Students are safe to learn in this orderly environment.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Maryland used the Maryland School Assessment (MSA) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The MSA is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Maryland. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
