This school have such a good teacher. This school has all of this A Excellent teachers that help every student success. Strong principal and school leadership. Also challenging academic programs.

Be careful in when selecting schools based on their test scores. Even though this schoool's scores are in the 90's, only about 20% of other 3rd to 5th grade population scored at an advanced level, compared to 50-60% at other Baltimore county schools.

The new principal at this school thinks she knows it all. I doubt her personal philosphies will take this school in positive direction. Seeking special permission from another school wouldn't be a bad idea if your child is zoned to edgemere.

Met with the new Principal while having difficulties at our current school and current principal. This school is very lucky to have such a great new leader with a her background. She took the time to talk to me and gave me information that helped me for my upcoming meeting in the current schools we are attending, which resolved a lot of conflict. She also gave us special permissions paperwork for our youngest child as an option for the next year. Give her a chance, change takes time.

This school is under staffed and unsupervised in many areas. Most of the teachers do not welcome, and in fact discourage parent helpers to cover up for their poor class management skills. They spend the majority of their resources supporting the lowest performing five percent of their population.

I love this school! The teachers are very qualified and caring. The principal is awesome! He's very friendly and enthusiastic and always participates in the PTA. He's great with the kids and always welcomes parents and volunteers. I couldn't ask for a better elementary school for my son.

My husband and I recommend Edgemere Elm because of the love and care that comes out of the school. Teachers reach out when there's a problem with children. I have 2 children who attend and are A'B students so 'thank you Edgemere'

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.
