This school is amazing! The students and faculty are are just fantastic. Everyone is very nice, and if an act of bullying does occur someone always steps in to stop it. This school not only has great achedemics, but also has fun, social activities; my favorite is Midnight Madness. It will be a sad day when I finnally have to leave Glenwood.

An excellent middle school for my son. We are especially pleased with his grade six science teacher, Mrs. Marquart. She has truly inspired him to do his best. His love of science has grown under her outstanding instruction and program.

My son, 12, has made many friends. He loves it and has found the math, English, and Spanish programs to be very helpful. I am so glad we moved out here, and I am sure deep down, he is too.

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.
