The Maryland State Department of Education released the new Maryland Report Card website today, December 4, 2018. The website contains performance data for every school in the state.

Just as report cards help parents understand how their students are performing, Maryland is introducing the new School Report Cards in order for students, parents, educators and community members to better understand  how their schools are performing. The School Report Card provides a starting point and offers easy-to-understand and concise information for each school.  Every school will receive a report that shows the following:
  • The percentage of points the school earned compared to the possible points on the state’s new accountability system
  • A percentile rank that compares the school to other schools in the state. 
  • A star rating with a 5-star school being the best possible rating. 
For elementary and middle schools the system includes:
  • academic achievement
  • academic progress
  • progress in achieving English language proficiency
  • measures of school quality and student success. 
For high schools the system includes:
  • academic achievement 
  • graduation rate
  • progress in English language proficiency 
  • readiness for post-secondary success 
  • measures of school quality and student success. 
Explore the new Maryland Report Card website at www.MdReportCard.org.

The School Report Cards can be found there along with more information and data about schools and districts.
Regardless  of any one school’s final score, the Maryland School Report Card represents the opportunity to empower and inform schools, parents and community members so that every school in the state can  succeed.  It not only provides data about all our schools, but also hopes to bring together the data in a usable way to help us ask questions, find answers, make decisions and act.  If you have questions regarding the Maryland Report Card or your school’s individual Report Card, we  encourage you to contact your school.
