Bayside Elementary School on Kent Island is an exceptional school. The teachers are caring, informed, and enthusiastic! They treat the students with respect and understanding. Academically challenging while maintaining a whole child balance with creative projects in-class and out-of-class. Walking down the halls or sitting with students in assemblies, I am very impressed with their special needs teachers and staff as well. There is a true sense of community for all students of all abilities, backgrounds, and income. We moved from Montgomery County and couldn't be more pleased with Queen Anne's County Public Schools.

This school has been heaven sent. We moved from PG County to Queen Annes at the beginning of the 2nd quarter. My daughter's grades have improved and do had her love for reading and school. Her teacher is the best and the staff genuinely care about the students.

I would also like to recognize another staff member who helps my child at BES. The school nurse has helped my child on more than one occasion, she is the utmost professional. We are lucky to have such a kind, caring, edcated person working for us and our children.

Ever since I set foot in the door I felt as though everyone was listning for once.I felt that all my childs needs were finally met.The iep team was very good in exsplaing everything and his 3rd grade teacher is one out of a fairy tail. I don't even want to let her go. The principal all the way to the teacher finally opened the door for my son and said we are here for you and can help you acheive your goal. The most important thing though is that they listened and cared enough to know my child and me.

The Principal, Vice Principal, Teachers and Staff of Bayside are all very caring educators. My son, a current student and my daughter who is now in middle school, have been truly blessed by being educated at this great school. A big thank you to all at Bayside. Your an A+ in my book!

This is a wonderful school that makes certain that the parent is involved in their students education. The teachers will call and leave a home number for you to reach them if they have information that they believe a parent needs to know. The teachers truly care about the success of your child.

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.
