My son attended Annapolis Elementary for 2 years and I was greatly dissapointed. After searching for a good school and reading the positive reviews on this website, I was surprised to have such an opposing opinion. The school lacked a community atmosphere. The teachers send home packets of worksheets that have been completed during class as "busy work." The students spend a lot of time learning through whole group instruction, rather than small groups. The teachers also lacked formal assessment data and documentation to identify how my son was performing. We have now moved and are sending our son to another school. We are much happier with the atmosphere and the staff at his new school.

AES is an OUTSTANDING school, My oldest son attended K-3 and my younger son Pre-K, I wish they could continue but we are moving out of state. The ENTIRE staff is so friendly and caring. The Principal is Excellent, the teachers are excellent, even the office staff is excellent. We have loved every year at AES!!!

I have been very impressed with the administration of Annapolis elementary. The teachers are caring and well educated. The Arts program and the parent interaction is fabulous! My child has enjoyed her first year in this school. Even though the school is diverse, everyone is treated the same and is encouraged to do their best! Thanks Annapolis Elementary for making me and my child feel comfortable and successful!

This school comes up average for how it functions under the current challenges of public schools under this administration. It has a nice mixture of socioeconomic student backgrounds but not enough program size to make the best of this culturally and socially diverse setting. Discipline is somewhat outdated and emotionally crippling for sensitive children. Creativity is only falsely fostered. Children's voices are not encouraged and not given feedback. Some attempt at gifted programs exist in the guise of balancing the resources given to the underpriveledged percentage at the school.

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.
