This school is horrible! DO NOT send your child there if you can help it. The students are a problem in itself, but the teachers lack of discipline makes it worst. My daughter was assaulted by a boy inside of a tiny classroom all while the teacher watched a movie. The students had to stop the boy from attacking my daughter. The teacher never got up from her desk. No authority figure was notified whatsoever. The principal Mrs. RyanHol never contacted me to notify me of the incident. Instead, she let the attacker leave the school grounds along with my child who is also a walker. The assistant principal Mr.Gibbs acted as if her dad and I were getting on his nerves when inquiring about how no teacher found this to be a serious issue. He then proceeded to lead us into a room where, by this time an officer had arrived. Both the principles left the school as if they could care less about the outcome. The school was getting ready to close and they truthfully did not want to be bothered. Furthermore, NO teacher or principle called me to inform me about this incident even though my child's eye was swollen shut! My own child had to find a phone to call me. When the officer went to look for them they had both went home without ever talking to us. Another teacher pulled me aside to tell me that this is the worse school she has ever worked for. PLEASE DO NOT BE FOOLED BY THE DIVERSITY!! Students are out of control and the teachers could care less about their safety, lives, or future. My daughter was withdrawn from that school that very next day. Please, if you love your child DO NOT send them to this school period!

Teacher effectiveness: Disagree

Extremely ineffective! They are there just for a pay check and that's it! This equates especially to both of the principles.


Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
8 graders are doing 6th grade work. The students are not challenging intellectually at all. Again, the teachers could care less about the students success!

Develops character: Strongly disagree

please read my long review. This school is horrible and extremely dangerous for kids. Do not be fooled by the diversity! The principle and assistant principal could care less about the well being of these kids.

Teacher effectiveness: Neutral


- a
They could be a lot more effective if the principal would put their foot down and pull the disrupters out of the classroom.


Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
What ever is given is not completed the next day. What is given has to be simple so they try and complete.

Develops character: Strongly disagree


- a
The principal is all show and no go. All the problems are left burdening the teachers.

Principal does not support the staff when it comes to disrespect and violent behavior by the students. If you check the surveys, the students and teachers rate the school as almost failing. Funny how the parents in each category rate high. This is because the principal and the upper staff do a great PR job to hide the problems. Unfortunately, nothing will change until the principal and her entourage get replaced. There isn't any more room under the rug to hide the truth. Several of the staff have been physically assaulted and threatened with knives and such. Don't send your kids there and don't work there.

The Principal doesn't care what happens at the School. Fighting, students disrespecting teachers. The first 4 months of the year 4 teachers walked out.

WORST SCHOOL IVE EVER SEEN, MOVING MY KID OUT THIS MONTH! My first grader has had to fight off older kids telling him they were going to stab him in the throat! Nothing at all was done about it, the administration does nothing about the behavior problems of the same students fighting and stealing daily! Teachers are just as frustrated with no support from administration, no parental involvement, no recess, no playground, bad test scores! Dont do it-I warn you, BCPS are the worst in Maryland! Especially this one! They hide it well with the nice new building, but its all screwed up once you get to see it for yourself!
