Blessing Coleman MOD 3 7th I think! DREW FREEMAN is a fantastic , creative, and enthusiastic middle school to be in. In Drew freeman alot of us are focusing on our work. The work we are focusing on is h.w., classwork, warm ups, and exit tickets. P.S. If you want to become successful in life you need to work hard at it and apply yourself to do it.

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.
