By now you have heard or read about the 2018 Maryland School Report Cards rolled out by Maryland State Department of Education. I thought I would see how each of the high schools did on the “report cards”. Here is the data listed in the system with the star rating for each school, total points received, % earned and county rankings:
Now this is the summary data…I provide links to each school below so you can review the detailed information.
You may notice the points and percentages don’t totally match up…that is because some schools were not evaluated for “Progress in Achieving English Language Proficiency” which was a 10 point evaluation item…so that is why some schools points and percentages are off from others.
Seven of the twelve schools in Howard County received 5 star ratings, four received 4 star ratings and one received a 3 star rating.
Top rated schools by percentages are:
- River Hill (1st)
- Marriotts Ridge (2nd)
- Glenelg (tied 3rd)
- Centennial (tied 3rd)
Looking at these schools by council district: River Hill (District 4), Marriotts Ridge (District 5), Glenleg (District 5) and Centennial (District 1)
Bottom rated schools in the county by percentages are:
- Hammond (9th)
- Long Reach (10th)
- Wilde Lake (11th)
- Oakland Mills (12th)
Looking at these schools by council district: Hammond (District 3), Long Reach (District 2), Wilde Lake (District 4) and Oakland Mills (District 2).
Looking at the current makeup of the Board of Education by district:
- District 1: 2 board members (Delmont-Small & Taj)

There is a lot of interesting information on all schools in the2018 Maryland School Report Cards…so be sure to give it a look when you have some free time.
I may break some additional numbers down by looking at things like overcrowding or other data points as it relates to this data…so stay tuned.
