  • My son has been attending this school since he was in pre-k, I love this school, the staff work well with the students and the students are very well behaved. I was so overwhelmed when they decided to go up to the 8th grade. keep up the good work

  • I am not impressed with the curriculum. It is not challenging enough. Teachers do not utilize techniques that make learning fun, which is something that is important to encourage children to want to learn more. Another thing that I do not like about the school is that it does not enforce its no bullying poilicy. In my opinion, the reason is that the number of supsension that would take place if the school did enforce its policy on conduct, it would not be ranked as one of the top ten middle schools in Baltimore City.
