My School is Winfield Elementary. The staff there is excellent. Both of my children have recently transferred from another school and it is drastic difference in the attitude and demeanor of the staff there. Everyone is so positive and caring towards the children. I feel good when I drop them off in the morning. As a parent, I want to visit and volunteer more to be part of their pleasant and productive environment. The only thing that I have noticed so far that needs improvement is the use of First in math, BCPS1 or some other online tools to help supplement the in-class learning and behavior monitoring. Overall it has has been a good experience so far.

Winfield is a good school at times they have many challenged students they get little to no support from the county board of education and do great things with what they have there over crowding is never addressed by the assigned rep Karen Blanard and ignored by the superintendent

My son attended this school for Pre-K and we recently relocated. But while he attended the school for one full year...HE LOVED IT. He made friends and the teacher taught him alot. They didnt have any field trips and other extras activities besides some field day event. That was the only bummer. The office staff are very friendly and precise. This school has a lot of kids and some of them are out of control but they are kids. I didn't like how the middle schools would be dropped off right in front of Winfield because it could cause potential bullying but overall, it is a GOOD SCHOOL TO START AT FOR A PRESCHOOLER!!!

I love this school. I spend my four years here, and had my 5th grade year in a different state. I missed Winfield so much! I want to come back to Maryland to visit soon!

The school is over crowded not enough qualified teachers that can moniter the students. One caferteria staff member that tries to moniter 50 to 60 kids at a time. Kids that have social issues are mixed in with regular students. Principal not responsive to parents questions or concerns. Too concern with following protocol instead of getting to know the students. Students that leave to attend other schools outside of Baltimore County are at a disadvantage.

This school has some disciplinary issues (ie. fighting, stealing, etc.) that perhaps could be corrected with a more structured schoolwide behavior plan. I don't think the prinicipal is as 'hands-on' with her environment as she should be. The teachers seemed very overwhelmed.

I am a former student of the school. This is a great organized school. There are alot of parent involvment and activities for students. Although the old principal left last year. The new one is keeping the school in shape. New Teachers, New Principal, Uniforms. This school is the best.

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.
