We have 2 daughters that attend Seneca and I cannot say enough good things about the school. The teachers, staff, principal and vice principal are wonderful, professional, talented and caring. They are extremely organized, do great things with the curriculum and extra curricular activities. They go above and beyond when it comes to special events as well.

I have 2 daughters that went to OLQP catholic school and when they eliminated the elementary shool there we sent them to Seneca. We live right around the corner from there and couldn't be more happy with the staff and the school itself. They have a wonderful PTA as well. The teachers are excellent and the principal and vice principal do a fantastic job at running things. We are truely grateful for the outstanding after school programs such as MESA and 24. My third daughter will also be attending there as well.

My two daughters went to school at Seneca Elementary, and now they each have a daughter going there. I am happy to see how involved the teachers are and the personal attention given to each student. I have been very satisfied with how much my grandchildren have learned. Seneca is also a very safety oriented school.

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.
