Collington Square is an amazing school, I am actually a graduate from that school. I graduated last year June, 2013... I have been going to Collington Square since Pre-K. I really enjoyed my years over at this school, I find nothing wrong with this school. Half of my family attended this school or still is attending this school. We have got complaints and there won't been none from us. I WOULD recommend this school to any and every body

This school is terrible. I have two children going here, one for six years, every year all I hear is what a pleasant well mannered child I have and that he is a pleasure to teach,and yet his scores are towards the bottom of the class, years ago I asked for extra work to get his grades up and was told that it wouldn,t be fair to the other children .Last year I asked again at the parent teacher and in turn was asked why I even bothered to come since my son never caused any problems. there is a reason this school only gets a rating of 1.If you have an out of control child this school might help ,if you send them a good kid they will just throw,em away. I just hope its not to late for mine.

This is my first experience as a parent with a school age child. This school is wonderful. I son has had such a great experience this school year and I have seen the growth in his learning. I would recommend this school to anyone who could attend. The principal is also a great and caring individual.

Collington Square deserves a better rating than what is listed. I have 4 children that attend this school, and 2 of them are in top high schools. Baltimore City College and Poly, this school offers many enrichment programs for not only students but their parents also. I give them a 5 star rating.

I feel that COllington Square should be given more acknowledgement than it is receiving. they provide alot of enrichment programs that have helped my daughter & other students along in their studies. Collington Square has really come a long way from what it used to be & I think that should be taken into consideration

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.
