My son attended EES this past fall and we loved it! He was in Ms. Herman's Kindergarden class and we absolutely loved her! We love EES!

My daughter attended from K-5 grade. We couldn't ask for a better school. Everyone is friendly and caring. She received an excellent education here. I was sad to see her leave to attend middle school.

This school is a hidden gem, often overlooked by the rating of 6 (as of 06/2013). The principal is excellent, the teachers are hardworking and good. With school redistricting (due to new school, Ducketts Lane Elementary), the rating of this school should definitely go up.

This school is fabulous. My son was at a private school for kindergarten and entered 1st grade below reading level. By the end of the year he was above reading level. The common core curriculum is outstanding. Each child in his class received what they needed to make the best of their situation. Each subject relates appropriately to a core theme making it interesting and fun. My son's teachers took the time to email me about a concern they had with his behavior (minor and "normal" for the age) but they felt it was out of character. The email was positive, polite, and very encouraging. They met with me after school hours and worked to see what we could do to make it better. I see nothing but great things from this school and am SO happy I moved my son.

We have had a wonderful experience with EES so far. The teachers are dedicated, experienced and capable. Parents are given the opportunity (and encouraged) to be involved and the school's principle is approachable, involved and responsive.

This is the second school my child attended in the Howard County School District and it is wonderful Great principal and the teachers for my child so far have been very good. I have found that there are challenging academic programs for children who are able. I am very satisfied with the school.

We love EES! It is an exceptional educational environment. The teachers and staff truly care for each child, encouraging outstanding academics while making learning fun! My kids are involved in the enrichment extensions and GT and are challenged over and above what we have experienced at other schools we have attended. We have a 5th grader and 2nd grader and have only encountered teachers that are highly dedicated and kind. It is an encouraging place not only for the students but for the entire family. Everyone makes it a priority to know parents, siblings, and even grandparents while maintaining excellent classroom management. They have combined the best of both worlds: incredible academic and creative opportunities with kindness, deep caring, and a close knit community.

This school is led by a wonderful principal who deeply cares about the students and communicates well with the parents. The teachers that I have had a chance to know are equally wonderful. However, PTA and school evening programs are not well attended by teachers or parents. More involvement would be most beneficial to the school and it's students. Overall, I am happy with the school and it's staff, but would love to see more community involvement.

I love this school! The teachers are very positive and supportive, and there's a culture of pride and a zest for learning throughout the school. My three sons attend, and almost all of the teachers they have had have been amazing.

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.
