McCormick Is an excellent school. My son is in the 5th grade and his experience at McCormick has been rewarding and extremely educational. The schools' communication with parents is outstanding. I feel confident in the elementary school education he received at McCormick.

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.
