I have 3 children in Cloverly ES & I must say that the teachers and staff are top notch and genuinely care about all the kids. My kids are always excited to go to school & when they come home, eager to share their day at school. The Cloverly PTA is also exceptional with all the fun activities they plan for the kids - reading night, bingo night, book fairs, movie night - our family is always looking forward to the next fun family event at Cloverly.

My oldest daughter has been going to Cloverly for three years and it has been a wonderful experience for our family. She started there in the first grade with poor reading skills, as she attended a nontraditional kindergarten. She progressed quickly and is now in the top reading and math groups. Cloverly teachers and administrators are great at creating a caring community environment and at providing the support that each student needs to be successful.

Love the school. Standards are high but the teachers make learning fun. My daughter is doing great and is ahead of some of her friends attending other schools. She has a love for learning and we are thrilled that she likes to go to school.

I love this school . I am a student who has been at cloverly for six years from kindergarten to fifth grade. And I have benefited a lot through those years. This school has prepared me for middle school and next year I'm taking accelerated classes especially in math. And in math, I'm not 1 but 2 years ahead of my grade level. This is an amazing school

Cloverly is a fabulous school with excellent academic standards and outstanding cultural and extracirrucular opportunities. The PTA is quite strong as well, with many activities and chances to serve the students and make a difference in the school community.

The standards are very high at this school - so much so that I had reservations at first that they may push kids too much. However, I am happy to say that the school nurtures the kids and helps them attain very high standards. The teachers are wonderful and there are many after-school events going on too, such as reading-night. I can't believe how much my son has learned over the last five months since starting at the school. He was a good reader before he started there but his progress has been phenomenal since being at Cloverly. His writing ability which was practically non-existent is now greatly improved. My child loves the school. My daughter is also at the school and has wonderful teachers - she always seems to be a much happier child having been in class. I believe Cloverly gives a 'private school' experience without the expense!

Fantastic school with very high levels of teacher, staff and parent involvement. Both of my children absolutely love this school and thrive in its supportive environment. The school is both academically challenging and lots of fun.

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.
