I am a parent of a 3rd grade student at Fallstaff Elementary/Middle School (2012-2013) hereby warn all parents to stay away from this school. It is one of the worst educational institutions in Northwest Baltimore. I will only say that because someone has an educational degree does not mean they have the ability to educate. When the educational professional do not believe in educating this school is an excellent example of what our children are taught. Baltimore City school board closes their eyes to the many complaints received regarding to staff at the school hitting children, cursing at children, fights daily, bullying, lack of school supplies provided to the teachers, Xerox machine had been out of service at this school over 50% of the school year. To sum things up do not send your child to this school if they expect for they to be educated.

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.
