This school is horrific. The school atmosphere is terrible, bullies everywhere and the staff can not control the students. They have the lowest test scores in the county.

This is my daughter's 2nd year at Bradbury and I will be honest she came from a very good Chartered school on Washington D.C so when we relocated to MD I was very nervous because I looked at the rating that Bradbury received. Like anyone else I had to see for myself. Bradbury like any other school has room and time to make improvements but the curriculum, staff of teachers and parent participation has exceeded my expectation. Bradbury might not be what others want it to be but if more parents participated and became part of the solution no one would have time to discuss a problem.

BRADBURY HEIGHTS IS THE WORST ELEMENTARY SCHOOL IN MARYLAND SERCH IT UP IM NOT KIDDING IT HAS THE LOWEST ELEMENTARY SCHOOL GRADES IN THE ENTIRE STATE OF MARYLAND
—Submitted by a parent


Posted January 11, 2007

My profound gratitude to the principal and to the teachers of Bradbury Heights Elementary School for being so accommodating supportive and helpful to me, my husband and most especially to my third-grade daughter. Being a school administrator back in my country (Philippines), I would give the school 5 stars for curriculum preparation. My daughter's very good performance in Mathematics and Reading could be attributed to the kind of teachers that she has. The resourcefulness and creativity of her teachers in the presentation and discussion of their daily lessons motivates my daughter to capture and retain learning. Everyday she always looks forward to coming to school because of the inspiring teachers that she has. Another factor that we like about the school is the presence of their down-to-earth principal. She is friendly, soft spoken, organized and most of all understanding. Another commendation is the school's clean surroundings. Kudos and more power!

Bradbury Heights is a great school in an urban setting. We moved here from Georgia and everyone has welcomed us with open arms. If the staff sees that parents are involved, then it appears that your child is guided more. I love this school, but not the school district.

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.
