The Mt. Washington is an advanced academics elementary and middle school and an accredited International Baccalaureate school. The faculty is amazing; their social science teacher was just named 2015 Maryland Teacher of the Year. The principal is an open, honest, and readily available to all parents. The assessment scores for the students in this school regularly rank as no. 1 or in the top three in Baltimore.

Two Baltimore Teachers of the Year, one that is the current Maryland State Teacher of the Year. Amazing faculty. The school listens to how parents feel about their teachers and is continually evaluating their effectiveness.

Students are taught to respect each other and their teachers. The school holds regular assemblies to examine issues and discuss what is going on in their city and how it relates to them.

This is a student focused school. No child drops through the cracks. Each child is given the individual attention they deserve. The school's approach to discipline is even-handed and fair.

My daughter started school this year. Despite the large class size, I feel that her teacher knows my daughter well and has made very helpful suggestions during our parent teacher conferences. She has art class, Spanish class and PE weekly as well as library. There are many fun afterschool activities, including more Spanish with a native speaker (for a small extra fee), as well as intramural sports (my daughter played basketball). The only reason I'm not rating this 5 stars is because of the class size. I think 20-22 kids per class would be better for all involved, but this class size (of 29 kids) is common here in the city. The vice principal has been very good about answering any specific concerns. I am pleased with this school so far. I am unfamiliar with the middle school so this commentary reflects on my daughters grade school experience. Oh, one more thing, I wish they had a nicer playground for the small kids!! They play outside in the parking lot, no playground equipment aside from large foam blue blocks which get pushed across the blacktop. Not sure if the older kids use the playground which is a little bit of a walk from the lower campus.
