My son had a positive experience at RICA. We were dealing with behavior problems and he lived on campus. The staff is caring. The doctors were great. There support and guidance helped avert a family crisis.

This school was the best thing that ever happened to me. I can't thank the staff enough for the help they provide. Sometime bad kids need to see the world in a different light. This school provide hope when there was none. After I left RICA, I became a Registered nurse RN. I don't think I would have made it without the leasons I learned there. So I would like to say thank you to the wonderful staff.

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.
