The School is average. Some of the teachers care about the acedemics and help the students and some could care less. Some of the admistrators are very rude to parents. The parking, Pickup, and dropoff is a mess due to poor design

I have been more than pleased with the education my children have received at this school. Their current principal is OUTSTANDING, really cares about each and every student and is clearly dedicated and cares about the students. The teachers have always been responsive and the staff are all friendly and caring as well. I've had a child in this school for that last 7 years and not once have I regretted it. My only wish was that more parents would take the time to get involved in the school because I think they could truly make a good school even better!

My daughter has been going there for three years and their curriculum is up to par.

We have chosen to relocate due to the poor education my son is receiving at GBP. The staff is rude and unresponsive. I have had to micro-manage and repeatedly follow up with his teacher and administration regarding required forms, due dates for fundraisers, and general questions I have had about his schooling. His once avid interest in reading and art has plummeted, and he finds the school boring-a response not typical of my child. Punishments are issued rather than working with the children on fundamentals that will help them in their lives. I am fortunate to have the option to move, but am disappointed that my son lost a year of enrichment by attending GBP.

I love GBP My children have thrived in a very warm and nuturing environment. The teachers are truly dedicated and work hard to make sure all of the students are doing their best. I am very pleased with the school. I would love it if more parents were involved. I am not sure all of the parents are attending the parent meetings. GBP is a great school!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 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.
