My daughter is in the third grade and I used to be a parent volunteer at the school. I can see the changes in the teachers and the interaction between the children and the adults in the school. Frederick is changing for the better.

I a member of the PTA and a parent and think Ms. kendall-Briggs should stay at Frederick Elementary and without her the school, teachers, parent, kids and PTA wouldn't happend. She mad a change for the better. People make her out to be a bad person but the school is becoming to be a self well run school.

I am a member of the PTA council and feel that my decisions are respected. Principal Kendall-Briggs transports us to various meetings to make sure that we are ready for the important role we will now have under Dr. Alonso.

Counting from 1-20 and saying a few words in spanish is not 'speaking spanish'. My daughter can learn more spanish from Dora the explorer than this school could ever teach her. This school is horrible and in need of improvement, lots of it.

This school has some excellent teachers, the leadership however could be better. The academic programs could be better and morale could be a lot higher if the leadership was more effective and supportive. My child is in the second grade and is blessed to have a teacher who is supportive and who thinks out of the box. When my daughter came home speaking spanish and told me her teacher taught her those words, I thought that was great!

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.
