Our youngest is still at the Green School(GS), while our oldest has gone on to Middle School and is excelling in advanced math and science classes. We are proud to be GS parents and thankful that both our children have been raised in this academic family. The staff is wonderful and caring. I could not have payed for a better education for my budding scientists.

THIS SCHOOL IS AMAZING. I sent my child here for the kindergarten and we are anxiously looking forward to the 1st grade. The teacher quality, principal leadership and parent involvement has exceeded my expectations. THIS ISN'T JUST A SCHOOL, IT A FAMILY.

I absolutely love this school. It's our first year with my son in kindergarten. I am constantly impressed with the small town community feel I get from the staff and families. The amount of attention these students receive is amazing.

Both my children attend The Green School of Baltimore, which is now in its 5th year (Fall 2010), has grades K - 5th and about 150 students. In our second year at this school, I am very happy with our experience, and count myself lucky to have my kids attending this school. The teachers are very hard-working and dedicated. The school prides itself on caring for the social and emotional development of students as well as teaching academics. As a parent, I like this simply because it creates a supportive atmosphere throughout the school. One of my favorite aspects of the school is the focus on literacy - both reading and writing. My kids have shown have shown tremendous growth in literacy since attending GSB. My son's favorite part of the school, however, is physical education and recess every day!

My son's attended The Green School of Baltimore for 3 years now. The administration really cares about its mission of project-based learning and its students. They are still trying to find their way and there are some inconsistencies, but the environment is a wonderful atmosphere for learning. I don't think I could have found a better place for my child.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 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.
