This school have some the most rude staff of any school I have ever experienced. Some of the teachers will look at you and not even speak(my own childs teacher). The most friendly people in the school are the office staff and the janitors, most of the teachers won't speak or avoid eye contact. I am a taxpayer and I shouldn't feel this way about the educators at Cooper Lane Elementary School.

Overall, Cooper Lane was a great school to attend. However, the principal there is very timid and had a lack of control. I also feel, there is a lack of concern from some of the administrators. I enjoyed most of my children's teachers and activities. Also, the requirements of supplies is getting out of control. Every year something else was added to the list. The schools require too much of parents, items that should already be supplied such as, paper towels, soap, and expensive items, like baby wipes, hand sanitizers and sandwich bags. These items are not necessary in the teaching of our children. If teachers desire these items, they should buy them.

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.
