Great school with excellent teachers. My son is in the Pre-K 3 program. He is autistic. I never have any problems with communication with the school and the teachers in his class are excellent. One of the great things about the school is that the Principal is very present and visible in the day to day. I had an issue the other day and emailed him about it. He got back to me right away with a solution. I am hoping my son can be in the program there again next year.

Learning at Joppa View Elementary school creates memories that guide students through out their middle and high school years. The teachers and staff put so much time and effort into their work and they always encourage their students to do their best. By the time a student is in fifth grade they will have more knowledge than imaginable that will guide them through out life, and they will take the old adventures they've had at Joppa View and create new ones through out their school years. Joppa View is an amazing school that truly makes a mark on future careers.

This my son's first year attending JVE, I'm very pleased with the teachers. The school had a meet & greet, back to school night, and volunteer orientation. I love the fact that you have to a criminal background screening before volunteering & chaperoning on field trips! Education & safety!

I have nothing but good things to say about this school. I was pleased with the school academically, and even more pleased with the teachers. They are very caring. All of the staff is caring and attentive. They also have strong parent involvement, which is very reassuring.

I taught school for 23 years and am now a grandparent of a JVE student. I feel that JVE does a wonderful job in all areas of a child's academic education. At JVE you will find caring teachers, structured curriculum, well disciplined students and an active parent group.

Joppa View Staff is awesome. My girls adore school because of the great staff. The teacher challenge the kids to broaden their educational skills. They take the time to know and care for their students which makes their learning enviornment that much more to love!

My child has attended J.V. for two years. In that time her grades have been a bit of a roller coaster ride. My child has had a few big injuries under the care of this school, two of which were not even documented. We were not informed, by the school, at all of one of the injuries. There is much more I could say, however I don't have the space. I do not recommend this school.

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.
