I graduated from CHS. One of my children granduated from CHS and is currently attending a state college. My other child is presenly a student at CHS and doing very well. There are a handfull of teachers that could do more for the students but most are very dedicated and would do anything to help the students succeed. As with most schools, parental involvement = student success!

I think that by attending this school, my academic achievement has been slowed. The teachers are not very goods, and the facilities seem as through they will fall down on us at any moment. I would attend another school in a heartbeat.

I have been very happy so far with my daughters education at Calvert HS. She is in 9th grade all AP/Honors courses and has excelled throught he 1st half of the year. I would love to see serious renovations done to bring the school up to the standards of the other schools in the county and conference, but as long as the education level stays high and the building is safe I will remain very happy.

Since moving from p.g county to calvert county the difference of how the school were runned is significantly different. I met some of the best and most influential teachers in my stay thru 00-04. I would of never stayed in school if it was not for the teachers at Calvert High

My children came from a small Private Catholic School and I like Calvert because it has the same feeling. I think it is well run and my children have done very well at Calvert and scored very high on the SATs.

Just like a ship sails under the command of a captain who is responsible for the welfare of its crew, so does a high school reflect the skill and professionalism of its principal. Gene Bridget has been mishandling the position of principal at Calvert High far too long. He needs to step down and allow someone else to try and rehabilitate the school.

The principal of Calvert High School should retire. He is the main reason the school demonstrates such mediocre standings academically.

This school is only reasoned well by currently enrolled students. When searching for a school for my 10th grader I was more than put off by the unfriendly staff and the run down school. I have never in my life seen a school so poorely taken care of. Where are the parents of the kids who go to this school? And more importantly where is the board of education when it comes to this school. It would be better for everyone if this school was just torn down and rebuilt.

Over all, this school is a small town feel. The more involved in the school the parent and student is the better the education for the student overall.

In working with school administrators and teachers at Calvert High School, our family has nothing but praise for their hard work and dedication with students.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Maryland used the Maryland High School Assessments (HSA) to test students in English 2, Algebra, and Biology upon completion of each course. The HSA 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. Students are required to pass the tests in order to graduate. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
