Midtown Academy Earns High Test Scores

standardized testMidtown Academy students in grades 3-8 outperformed their City peers in all areas on the PARCC standardized test. Even more exciting, students outperformed their peers statewide in 8 out of the 12 areas, and in 7 out of the 12 areas compared with students across the whole country.

Historically, Midtown students have tested very well on City standardized tests. Executive Director Jennifer Devon thinks that this could be attributed “to a number of things, quality instruction through our experienced and tenured staff, comprehension of quality curriculum, or perhaps just the general interest our students have in wanting to learn.”

Soon after these scores were released, School Digger, a nationally known school ranking system, named The Midtown Academy’s middle school as the #1 Charter Middle school in Baltimore City, and second best in the City for all schools. The Elementary School ranked in 5th place among all City schools.

Congratulations to the students, staff, and families for their fine performance.
