My expiriance at Maryland City was the best. All my teachers were awesome, and I was sad to leave it. The school itself is cool, with a newly built gym, and fully renovated. The kids there were uniform. You have the opportunity to become a safety patrol in the 5th grade. Maryland City is in a passive part of Laurel, not to far away from Brock Bridge Elementary. Overall, Maryland City is a great school. You should enroll your child there.

My daughter is a first grader and is doing extremely well in her classes. She loves her teachers and her class. Her reading has improved a great deal from Kindergarten, and she really seems to be blossoming here. She can't wait until she is old enough to take on an instrument. We attend most of the events held at the school, the last one being the Multi Cultural Fair. I have also signed on to chaperone a field trip in January. My daughter attends the after school program through SACC as well. At the end of her school day, she joins about 25 other kids of all grades in the gym for after school care. Her homework is always finished when I pick her up at the end of a long day, and she has made some great friends from the other grades. We love Maryland City and their after school program!

This school is really going downwards since the new leadership. Teachers are not encouraged to teach the children at a higher level. The scores can get better if the leadership was not trying to keep parents out of the school. They do not encourage parent involvement. I have been having a hard time trying to get my daughter into advance studies since she is complaining that she is not challenged.

My daughter will be entering 1st grade, after a very enjoyable year as a Kindergartener... The commitment of the staff, from the principle, Karen S., to the out-going media team and lunch group, not to mention the teachers, made her first year great.

My daughter has been a student at maryland city for 3 years. We both love the school. We moved from the Washington D.C. and I found my daughter was lacking in a lot of areas. Thanks to Teacher involvement along with at home studying she now above her grade in reading . The Principal knows every student by name and is very involved in the daily activities of the school.

The overall concern for the students is very high at Maryland City. Everyone gets involved with every student regardless if he/she teaches the child or not. The principal is extremely involved and approachable. The academics could be higher for children who excel academically. There are also strict policies for bathroom use to control the amount of disturbance in class and the halls. I found that to be very aggravating for my child because she is old enough and responsible enough not to abuse the right.

I have 3 children enrolled in this school and I found that every staff member from the principal to the custodian are sincerely interested and actively involved in the students learning and developmental process. My children really enjoy this school.

My daughter had a wonderful experience as a pre-k student. The teachers were kind and loving and were very sensitive to her emotional state. They always made sure her peanut allergy was kept in check. I loved the extra activities provided. They helped me feel as if she and her family were truly part of the school. Education wise they helped her excel in math and pre-reading skills.
