This school is terrible! The teachers do not get any support. They get degraded by the Principal in front of the children and parents. There is at least one teacher a year that gets picked on by the Principal and her followers. Some teachers are specifically given a job of spying on the teachers and reporting back. Lies are constantly made up about the teachers. The teachers never know what they did to be on the bad side. The children run the school. The administration doesn't provide any help with discipline.

This school front office all the way to the vice principal need training in customer service. The teachers are screaming at the students. The staff attack the parents when concerns are brought about. I would never recommend this school to parents. PARENTS CHECK WITH OTHER SCHOOLS BEFORE YOU ENROLL YOUR CHILD HERE. I TOOK MY CHILD OUT OF THIS SCHOOL.

My child has been going to this school for two years now. The first year was wonderful as she started her education. This year, not bad, not not as great as last. My child was kicked by another in the back and my child had to tell me what happen. No incident report from the school at all. Now they want to send have the school on a 10 min bus ride to another school especially when the school she goes to now is in walking distance. I love the teachers here. I walk my child to class everyday just so the teacher and I can have a minute to converse. I am a working single mom, so I take advantage every minute I get.

This school has the rudest front office staff. When you ask for something to be done it is as if the school would rather work against you than with you. The teachers my children have had have been wonderful. I think this schools front desk staff need a reality check with a good dose of customer service training, and only then would they be aon the very edge of acceptable.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 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.
