My child has attended pinehurst for four years and I have always been impressed with the teachers and staff. My child has developed both academics and social skills beyond her years with the support of truly caring individuals. I have developed a great relationship with the staff over the years and they have truly earned my support and respect !

I was surprised at all the programs offered at this elementary school a Jump Rope Team, Step Drill Team, Chess Club, Accelerated Reader program, Character Building programs through a partnership with Salisbury University. The football players even visit the kids at school. What a great role model for children of single parents.

What a difference a year makes! This is like a new school. The children are really thriving with the new positive behavior incentives program. The discipline problems are quickly being nipped in the bud. Let's see if the staff can keep the momentum going all year.

I believe Pinehurst Elementary and it's outstanding teacher Mr. Kevin Hill need to be applauded. They have done wonderful things with my son at this school that no other school could do. He actually likes going to school this year! They have a great aquatics program that has helped him a great deal.(he is ADHD) The smaller classroom has also been a great help. Thanks Pinehurst for everything! A GRATEFUL MOM!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 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.
