Love the school, and all of the staff! Very small school, that is not overcrowded. Teachers spend adequate time with each student, making sure no child is just "pushed" through the system. Mr. T is one of the best principals around! Couldn't be happier here. My oldest son started this school in 4th grade, after we moved to the area. He started off with a second grade reading level, after being "pushed" through from another local school. After a lot of hard work from the staff, we were able to get him the extra help he needed. Thanks to the care and concern at fountain rock, he is now above grade level. I just cant say enough about how wonderful this school really is.

Overcrowded, open classrooms, outdated structure and materials, Draconian discipline administered by burned-out teachers with no patience. My oldest son languished in this terrible place for 2 years - my youngest will not be attending there.

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.
