My child just started this school in August/2013 and he has multiple disabilities. He hasn't made much progress but I do talk to his teacher and she does try to do everything she can to make it better.

The school needs air conditioning, better lunches, and most of all a pool for the hot days

I AM A PARENT OF A STUDENT, WHO HAS BEEN ATTENDING NEW HOPE ACADEMY #345 FOR THE PAST THREE YEARS. THIS SCHOOL IS A NICE DISTANCE FROM OUR HOME AND VERY SATISFIED WITH THE EFFORT OF TRANSPORTATION THAT WAS PROVIDED EACH SCHOOL DAY.

As a former employee, I didn't fully appreciate how wonderful the staff and students at New Hope Academy are until I started working at another school. The staff and students have an unparalleled level of respect for each other. The atmosphere felt like we were a family. It was an honor to be a part of this amazing school. Even when there wasn't a scheduled daily morning staff meeting for the second floor, we all ended up in our usual meeting place anyway, problem solving and brainstorming how to help students. I can only hope that my future children will have teachers that care as much as the staff does at New Hope Academy.

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.
