As a former teacher at this school, I have seen many facets of this community and am proud to have been a part of such a great school. The school has a tight-knit staff, students who go above and beyond what statistics would have you believe they should be doing, and wonderful parent participation. I would recommend this school highly.

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.
