Great school. The school is only about 4 years old and the teachers are wonderful. They really keep parents updated with how their child is doing. Job well done!

My son went to the Judy Center there last year and it was great! The school does not have a lot of kids so that is a huge plus. He will be going into pre-k this coming year and i can't wait. This school is awesome.

We have been so impressed with this school. We were redistricted and were worried with absolutely no need. All I can say is wow! The teachers are so enthusiastic and energetic with a sincere caring for each and every individual. Of course there are still a few problems but you have that with every school. I believe that this school his the county's hidden jewel! 3 of my children attended this year and have shined. One of my children had difficulties in reading and with a lot of encouragement and hard work between her, her teacher, and us she from reading below grade level to reading 2 grade levels above! All the teachers rock!

My son's have had the most wonderful experience. My youngest is in the first grade and has Mrs. Johnson. The most wonderful teacher. All the teachers there are great and seem to really care about the children. The principal is wonderful! He is very open to talking with you about any of your concerns. This is the greatest school my children have been in. My oldest is in the fourth and just excelling. I love that they have music and Boys & Girls club to help children that need that extra push as well as the summer program the school offers. Thank you so much We will miss them for we will be moving.

My daughter went to the school last year and at first wasn't quite 'with it', but after a few months, she loved it. My son now goes there and has a new Kindergarten teacher by the name of Mrs. Hnatyszyn. She is great. She helped with the diagnoses of my son's ADHD, which helps out everyone. She also has helped him out alot on him learning how to read. Which he has picked up very well. I cannot forget to mention her assistant teacher, Mrs. Tippett. She has also been a great help with all of the students in the classroom. All in all, I would say that George Wasington Carver Elementary is realy improving the quality of the education of our kids a great deal and I would recomend this school to anyone wishing to transfer their child there.

We have been surprised with this school. Our daughter was redistricted into it last year and we were quite worried, since it used to be the worst in the county. The teachers seem to care about the kids and are working hard to bring up scores. They are limited by a poor facility but seem to work harder to make up for it. There are still quite a few parents who don't care about their kids but it seems to be getting better.

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.
