High School Assessments (HSA)

In 2011-2012 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. Beginning with the class of 2009, students are required to pass the tests in order to graduate. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.

    The new principal has really organized this school. My son was not making it anywhere but he has experienced teachers and a counselor who actually said 'we don't do ordinary' and my son is taking the SAT in January and applying to colleges.

    I think it is wonderful to have a school to meet the students need. This reliefs a parent to know where the child is and that the child is recieving the best academic training. Thanks again because this school is the last resort for many students.
