About This School
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See MD Academy of Technology and Health Sciences's test results to learn more about school performance.
In 2011, MD Academy of Technology and Health Sciences had 12 students for every full-time equivalent teacher. The Maryland average is 15 students per full-time equivalent teacher.

It's a very nice school and you should really go here.
I think this is a wonderful school and the children are well educated. (Edited for content by Education.com staff)
I have been thoroughly pleased with with the school, my children have adjusted after being in private school and are doing extremely well. The Adminstration and staff are caring and readily express that their #1 concern is the students. I believe this is a great place to enroll your child.
Just a note as a parent and teacher... I would reflect on my own practices and see where it is that I can improve or assist rather than point fingers at administration and other teachers. From what I know of the school, if the teachers and parents would take more pride in what they do (ie., attendance at parent meetings, teachers absenteeism and total lack of concern for students). This is not the school's fault that some parents and some teachers lack control over their children and teachers are recycled from the city. If the school could operate like many other charters in the country, these posts would be nil. As a teacher to post this would suggest a lot about you as a teacher.... perhaps it's time to look for your true calling and not fall back on education as your crutch.
Do NOT allow your students to attend this school. EXTREMELY incompetent administration. Testing and grades are skewed. Unclean and inadequate environment. Students are allowed to behave how they wish because administration is more concerned about their appearance to the district. This school does a great job of appearing as a "college prep" school, however, the school accepts anyone and is a last resort for many students that other schools will not accept due to behavior. It is a poor excuse for a school and should immediately be shut down.
Incompetent administration. They should be closed before next year.
its a safe family environment that each student can learn
