This school is not good at all they allow bully at there school. When I was complaining they act as if they didn't care. A lot of kids don't live in the area goes there. Just sad. I want to send my child to a school who cares.

Dulaney is a "Great School" and has excellent learning opportunities and academic programs. I find that most of the teachers, teach quality teaching that challenge the students and promote strong minds.

The bullying problem in this school is ridiculous. There are many kids that doesn't even live in the surrounding areas that attends this school. The Guidance staff are completely clueless as to what the kids needs are. Unfortunately I had a family member attend this school and I was not satisfied. I had to fight the school to provide her with quality education based on her results from a test to determine what grade level she was working at. It took about 1/2 a year to finally get her tested after much complaints. I was requesting this since summer before she even transferred. Based on her transfer to this school they didn't know how to apply credits so they finagled it someway. The guidance counselor needs counseling themselves. I would NEVER allow my own child to go to that nasty school.

The schhool is academically challenging, yet the students are so undisciplined and i was picked on all the time. You have to watch what you say or do at Dulaney, or it will leave a permanant mark on you for the rest of your high school career. I would love to go back and choose a different school.

This appears as an ok school. While academic are good there seem to be some discipline problems with the students. However the faculty are great.

Both my children went to Dulaney (boy and girl). Both took AP's and entered UMBC and RPI with more than 30 credits each. It's a tribute to the Principal (passed and present) and to the Teachers for such a fine education. They met great friends and continue that relationship past high school.

It is academically rigorous offering so many AP subjects than any other high schools in Baltimore county. The top students went to ivy league schools and had a good number of merit school finalists. My child got 5's in AP subjects and is entering as a sophomore at University of Maryland College Park in the scholars program which she even finds easy! Had she gone to a private school, she would have not gotten this very good education!

my first outlook on dulaney was that it was an outstanding school. But then after the many drug busts that have occured in the past month or so is very concerning as a fellow administrator i must say myself.

There is an emphasis on sports, but the arts are very important to the principal and staff as well. Parents are very involved, improving the overall quality of education and extracurricular activities.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Maryland used the Maryland High School Assessments (HSA) to test students in English 2, Algebra, and Biology upon completion of each course. The HSA 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. Students are required to pass the tests in order to graduate. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
