Academy for College and Career Exploration is not a safe school because the front door that people used to enter in the morning is not safely secured, and what I mean by that is say if you ring the bell no one asks you whom you are, or what your business is within the school they allow you to proceed through the door. Once you enter the building you don't have to report to the office you can walk straight up the stairs or the hallways,no one really enforces you to go to the office to sign in. Where is the safety in that? There was an incident where a group of boys came to the school to drop a student off and the student reported the her brother that she was being harassed by a male student. The group of boys proceeded to the school and made their way into the school they were not wearing the school's uniform, nor did they have the schools id on them. They went around the school looking for the male student that his sister reported was being bullied by. Their intent was to fight the male. My question is where was the school police? You're supposed to ensure the safety of the students and the staff, why were they not at the door making sure that people go to the office and check in?

I love this school. All of the teachers know me, Mr. Mitchell, the principal knows everyone by name, and the staff members care about all of the students. When I'm at this school, I feel like I'm with my own family. That's how close evryone is. Even the teachers. This school is awesome.

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.
