The school does very little to encourage outside reading. Reading skills are sub par. This was relected in the most recent publication of the MSA English scores on Level 5.

I think that this is an excellent elementary school and i will definitely continue to send my daughter there. The principal and staff are very good at what they do. Kudos to them. I am especially impressed with the intreractions that i see amongst the staff.

My child has been attending Charles Carroll Barrister for 3 years now. I have always liked my child's teacher, but this year I am especially impressed! The teachers are always friendly and work with me to best help my child!

My son has gone to this school for 2 years. Pre-K and Kindergarten. My son is very smart for his age and is above grade average in every class, yet his homeroom teacher refused to give him the good grades he deserved. I was informed that the teachers are told to give lower grades then they deserve so that the school can continue to receive grants from the government. The school didn't know what to do with my son this year so they bounced him around from grade to grade trying to find out where he belonged and wound up making him hate going to school and 'burning him out', according to the principal. If I had any way to get my son out of this school and into a different one I would. I am very disappointed with the way this school handled my son's situation.

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.
