This is an outstanding school. The teachers are excellent. The entire staff cares about the well being of the students and their families. The administration team is second to none. They maintain an orderly and professional environment at all times.

Rogers Heights Elementary School is located in Bladensburg, Maryland. This school serves a moderately low income of students and parents. About 85% of the students receive free or reduced lunch. The teachers are very dedicated and work very hard to achieve Prince George's County Public School goals. The Principal is very hands on and really cares about the students and staff. Overall, I think this is a quality 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.
