Dr martin luther king is the worst school ever. The principal Rachel Brunson is very rude and unprofesional she treats the parents like they are not important she does not want any parents in the building. The vice principal Gloria Robertson does not no how to talk to parents in an profesional manner and she likes to put her hands on other people's childrenmI as a parent would not recomend anyone sending their children to this school,they have low test scores and poor staffing.

all the teachers care about is a paycheck. My sons 1st grade teacher made him out to be an outkast in his class and had refuse to teach my son. When I asked for a conference to try and get understanding, my sons teacher was always too busy and never had the time. I felt the principal didnt even care to press the issue either. That is definitely not the reason I send my kids to school, for failure. I have completely decided to withdraw both of my children.

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.
