I have two sons that both have experiences at RES and we loved it. The diversity of the students and the celebration of each student's uniqueness is remarkable. I am truly blessed to have found a school that can educate and nurture the growth of my children! We love RES!! Thank you teachers and administration.

My daughter attended the 2nd grade in Reisterstown Elementary school (2004/05). She arrived in the US without speaking a single word in English, but with the constant support of her teacher and the team of English as a second language classes (ESOL), nowadays she is able to speak, read and understand English. It is an amazing school and a great environment! Monica Malta, mom of Hayana Linhares

I have a son that goes to Reisterstown Elementary. I really do love this school and it's staff. The principal and teachers really do care about the students. They will work with the child so that he/she will succeed.

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.
