Map of Fountaindale Elementary School address.

Fountaindale has a lot of great attributes. Some negative community attitudes bleed through, though still better than many. One commenter stated smaller class size...while they report student teacher ratios of 15:1, it's really fuzzy math. Actual ratio is around twice that. But they average in specialists who give the teacher breaks or teach specific subjects. But at no time that I'm aware of, are the classes split up, or with two teachers present at one time, so that there might be an actual ratio of 15:1. All the schools and districts at least in Maryland appear to be using this fuzzy math, so they must not consider it unethical or a misrepresentation. Just mentioning it because someone new to Maryland might interpret the reported student teacher ratio to be actual.

Fountaindale is a real gem. Member of the Coalition of Essential Schools, Magnet School for the Arts, small class sizes (15% below State capacity), active afterschool programing and outstanding staff. It is the only elementary school in the county with free afterschool learning academies, athletic programs and STARS recognition events. We are very fortunate to send our kids to this school.
