I don't care what this sight says, this is a great school. Its in a really low socio-economic area which probably accounts for the lower test scores. My son has autism and the staff are fantastic with him. I get the impression that the teachers and administration really care. Don't be scared to send your child here. They are in good hands.

This school is the most trustworthy place. All the staff are so nice when you walk thru the door. They make everyone feel so welcome. It's nice when you have to go in. And when you go there to get your kids they know who you are, who your child is, and what class your child is in. I wish all the schools could be like this. Winter Street is the best! And they deserve to win!

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.
