use to love this school when my older kids went there but this new princepal there and her front desk people are all rude not helpful. And not to mention this is a woman who likes to hear herself speak way to much.but I do still love the teachers. though I will be glad when my child is out of there .

I LOVE Patuxent Elementary. I feel very fortunate that my children were able to attend this school during the three years we lived in the area. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the trachers are top notch, and the PBIS system truly rewards students for good behavior as well as clearly defines expectations and consequences for poor behavior. I wish I could pick this school up and move it with us.

Let me just say that if your child gets to attend Patuxent Elementary then He or She is very lucky.I sent my Daughter to two other schools before Patuxent and I was very satsified with Patuxent.I was very worried about her because those other Schools had her way behind for her age and Patuxent pulled her up to her grade level in one year.They gave her extra classes after School for the topics that she needed.I didn't have to ask them they just knew what she needed.This is just a wonderful School.

The teachers really care, the parents are involved, and the PBIS behavior rewards program really makes this school stand out.

I love this school. It is a public/private school. The principal and staff have a sincere interest in the education of the students. I am totally impressed with the leadership as well as the involvement of the teaching staff and parents. The school provides an environment for academic achievement and a spirit of excellence.

Fairly new school. Open court reading program, I am very suprised to see our sister school (appeal grades 3-5) scored lowest in the county for reading and math tests last year. They also have public preschool for 4 yr olds and a building next door for headstart preschool (ages 3 and 4). Being that the school is new, the classrooms, materials, playground equipment etc. are all in great condition.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
