I love Glen Ave. My son had Mrs. Seabrease and Murphy, both which were wonderful, beautiful ppl on the inside and out. I love the principal and the office staff. None have been rude or inconsiderate of me our my child. This yr, he was switched from two teachers classrooms and sent off to two others, and thank God, they did him a big favor. I love his teachers this year and feel grateful for the change. One of his teachers goes to church with us too and actually helped keep him focused in sunday school classes and helped with a major event in his life in the church. That was beyond her call of duty. I didn't realize she went to our church til she told me she sat in with him to keep him focused through that class that prepared him for that major event. She's just amazing. There's nothing I can buy for the end of the year to show my appreciation. I wish I could do something more or come up with some great idea to show them how much they mean to me and my family.

The staff at this school are very courteous and are always praising my son for his accomplishments. He loves it and tries extra hard and now is a straight 'A' student.

I truely do believe this is a top notch scholl. The staff is always more than helpful and has really been great to all 3 of my children through the years. I am going to be sad to leave in 2 years. I really appreciate all you do in assuring a brighter future for your community!!!!

I have a fear that some teachers in this school do not truely care about the students education. My child has slipped in his grades this year and I asked for a parent teacher conference and never received a phone call. I had to leave a message to get a hold of a teacher and request it again. I dont just send my child to school for some place to go while I work... He is there for an education and if he is struggling you would think the teachers would have the desire to share that with me before I see the report card. Before this year he was and A and B student.

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.
