Belle Grove Elementary has really changed! And for the best! The principal is wonderful. This is her 3rd school year here and she has been the best thing that has happened to this school. Most of the teachers are newer, younger, and so energetic. My daughters teacher, Mrs. Patricia Park is the best thing that happened for my daughter. My daughter has ADHD and a couple of other issues going on and Mrs. Park has been the best teacher for the special needs that my daughter needs. Overall, I love this school, it has changed for the best and Mrs. Adrianne Taylor (the principal)was very much needed before she came! She has really changed this school around and I wouldn't want my children in any other school. And I wouldn't want Mrs. Taylor to every leave! Thank you Mrs. Taylor and Mrs. Park.

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.
