My niece is a student at this school this is her first year and school just started. She has been assaulted by a boy and she bullied everyday by a group of girls in her class. I have talked to her teacher and principal multiple times and nothing has been done. She couldnt even do her work in class because one of the girls stole her glasses and she couldnt see and the teacher still did nothing. She cries everyday before school because she is afraid to go and no one will do anything none of the little girls parents have been talked to or even called. I had a talk with the little boys mom that assaulted my niece and we havent had any problems since. My co-worker kids went to this school as well and she transferred them because they were not learning due to all the distractions and they were also being bullied and now my niece is dealing with the same situation. Her grades are declining because there are too many distractions to stay focused. Something needs to be done about this school because the administrators seem to not care.

I have three children ranging from 17yrs to 5yrs and all three have been enrolled in Pimlico Elementary School. PreK and K the teachers experience are above average. Mrs. Ward who's retired now, Mrs. Smith and Mrs. Jones are the best Pre k and Kindergarten teachers that were ever made. Your child will be reading in the Kindergarten. From the 1st grade to the 5th grade the teachers lack experience and training, because of this your child may suffer and their learning potenial may decrease. The class size is too large for 1 teacher. Our children deserve the best and every class need a teacher and aid to help and assist with the day to day instruction. Without qualified teachers and staff our kids will find it quite challenging to succeed. submitted by L. Townes, parent

I really don't care to much for this school. Pimlico is really not safe. It seems like they are on a tight budget at this school, Pimlico needs more adult supervision. The students at Pimlico not all of them but the majority act like fighting is the only opption. However there are schools out there that don't play that fighting game they will not take that. Pimlico needs to crack down on there policies just because they are in a high crime area doesn't mean that they have to put up with it. Pimlico need more teacher aid in the classroom. I know nobody is perfect but something needs to be done because our kids are there to learn and not to be fighting or to get beat up on

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.
