I the Principal leadership isn't good never on the premises, someone attacked my son and no one contacted me they seldom follow up on anything, they have a few good teachers . My son does not want to return next year ...they don't enforce the wearing of uniforms belts and no makeup you can't run a school if children think they can do what they want and disrespect adults.

For a "charter" school I expected better. If this school could solve the lack of student discipline, maybe they could actually begin to educate. Teachers spend far too much time dealing with discilinary issues. The principal was completely ineffective. It's a shame that the same few disrupters were allowed to ruin it for the 90% that wanted to learn. Very disappointed!

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.
