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 school is very hard to get used to. The students get away with a lot more than they should in classrooms. My expirience so far has been pleasent but I was not put here by choice. If you want a good school and have the money send your daughter to Mercy High School. The best year of my life was spent there. It is worth the money.

    My daughter is attending Dundalk High School after a private school experience. She loves it! The teachers are very helpful. She was actually behind in Math. I wish more parents would take an active part in bringing this school up to Magnet standards!!! Teachers and admin. keep up the great work!

    My children have always been enrolled in private schools. Once I placed my son and daughter in Dundalk Senior High I was amazed. There was no difference. The teachers are loving and caring as well as the administrative staff. I would highly recommend Dundalk Senior High!

    I am a graduate of Dundalk High School year 2002 and believe Dundalk to be a great school with many advanced classes as well as ethnically diverse teachers and students. Without diversity how can students learn the value of equallity teamwork and commitment. I am very proud to say that I attended Dundalk High school not only because of academics but extracurricular activities as well. It is a great place to live work and be educated!---Keri class of 2002

    Fine school for academics very underrated. I've seen many good kids graduate and become fine adults. However the level of students and parents involved in sports and after school events is terrible.

    I am a senior here at Dundalk. The Teachers are the best I have had and except for the occasional fight(which happen in all schools) It isnt bad. . . I would choose this school over any other.

    I attended DHS and graduated in 2000. Since graduation I have recieved my BA in Political Science and am working on my MBA. I believe that the school has much to offer to students and families that are willing to give back to it. When parents are involved children succeed. Period. No matter what the name reads on the front of the building.

    After hearing all the nasty things written about Dundalk High School I choose to send my 4 children there. After my children attended Dundalk they all went to colleges and earned there degrees. I was extremely involved in my childrens education and feel that what i observed from the Teachers at Dundalk was nothing less then wonderful they challenged my children and helped them grow into grown adults.

    The school has been helpful in getting special needs for my daughter. They have been compliant and sympathetic in getting her special placement and services. Thanks.
