I LOVE Brookhaven!! I have two children that are excelling at Brookhaven. The principal-Mr. Grundy is a wonderful man and I just love the faculty and staff! For a city school, you get the "hometown" feeling here. The teachers are just as involved and concerned about the children's development as the parents! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Ms. Johnson, Mrs. Ulrich, Ms. Seiler, and Mrs. McDaniel!. The environment here is very conducive to a child's learning. Daily recital of the Bobcat Code and College Chant instills in the children responsible behavior and the importance of education.

We left a very highly rated school and now attend Brookhaven. We couldn't be happier. My child has thrived in this school. They have family nights in which nearly all of the staff join in on the fun. The staff seem to think of each other as family. The principal is top notch. He's accessible, caring and professional. Most importantly, the students like him and are comfortable around him. We are so so so happy at this school.

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.
