i think the school is a great inprovement from years past.But i do agree that ele. and middle should not be together. Iknow children have to grow up ,but i think with their own peers.

I have a daughter that attends this school and for the most part this school is okay. I think the teachers there are really concerned about the children and the quality of education provided to them. As a parent if you want to see change, you have to get involved.

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.
