I think that this school is great. I love my son's teacher she keeps me informed and up to date with my sons progress and all the programs they have planned. Anytime my son can not wait to go school the next day is a good enough sign for me that the teacher and the school are doing something right. I love this school!

School's mission statement should read 'We only care about standardized testing'! Do not have programs in place to challenge those students that are above the average student. Average student is being driven to achieve mediocrity, because if everyone scores 70 on the 'Standardized Testing' then the educators have far surpassed expectation that have been pre-set.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 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.
