I agree with the parent who posted Feb 1, 2005. She is correct. I'm a junoir , about to be a senoir next year. And I got told the same lies. But whatever. The school is awesome. Doesnt matter if we dont have fast food or computers for everyone. We DO have computers supplied to every student in every class. No we cant take them home. But they allow us to use the internet on projects and such. So, learn about the school before you get chumpped

this school is boring and they didnt fullfill any promises they said they would. the programming pathway is stupid and in many other pathways they do no work at all. all of the ninth graders are always out of control. this school has more bad points than good in my book.

I have two children who go to Digital, one is a sophmore & the other is a senior. My senior has been going there since the second year of Digital's existance, and she absolutely loves it there. She has had no problems academically, she's an honor student for the past four years. The teachers are helpful, there is plenty of assistance for those who are having trouble. Yes, they made false promises, but their funding was pulled. Also, as for fights and rude children, take that up with other parents. Not the school system. Fights are bound to happen in all schools, the teachers have no control over most student's attitudes, especially if they come to the school with no manners, which is again, the parents fault.

My son is going into his junior year at Digital. I am impressed with the education he is receiving and this past school year he made the honor roll for the last 3 quarters. As far as students go, you will find rudeness everywhere, to my experience it has been a minimum. I have been escorted around by students when I visit the school with no hesitation.

My son just got accepted to Digital Harbor. I was very impressed with everything this school has to offer. The teachers really looked like they cared about the students. The students were very polite and helpful during the tours during orientation. Digital has everything to offer for students . I know my son is going to love it at Digital.

My child has been in this school for three years and everyday she has a complaint that the other kids are too loud and disrespectful. I don't appreciate that the kids haven't changed their behavior. I thought that this school was going to be without the rudeness, but I guess I was hoping too much. I think that they should have kept southern as it was and just kick the bad kids out. They didn't have to spend all that money on something that didn't even need renovating. I am very disappointed!

My daughter was just accepted to 'Digital'(what the kids call the school) so we(my wife and I) took the afternoon off to visit the school. I was surprised to see it is located above another school (Southern High?) and has a very mixed enviroment. The kids seemed well adjusted to high school and quieter than visits to other Balt. City Schools. We met the Principal and a few teachers and all seemed enthusiastic about corricullem and students. The office staff was alittle a pathetic with questions but this seems common to City Schools were parental involvement is not normal. Overall it seems a good school. We parents can make any additional positive change. Though being renovated the area around the school is beautiful and part of the downtown expansion. The visionary art museum is next door and its restaurant made for a nice ending for a good day. Check out the school yourself.

This school is not what I expected. The told my child false information. They told him that he would get a laptop computer when he entered this school. They also told him that there was going to be fast food restaurants at lunch. I don't appreciate what they told my son and didn't even follow up on it. I am very dissapointed.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Maryland used the Maryland High School Assessments (HSA) to test students in English 2, Algebra, and Biology upon completion of each course. The HSA 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. Students are required to pass the tests in order to graduate. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
