Best Public Schools in Crisfield, MD


The city of Crisfield, Maryland is home to two schools, Carter G Woodson Elementary and Crisfield Academy and High School, both part of the Somerset County Public Schools district. While the schools share some similarities, such as lower-than-average student-teacher ratios, they also exhibit distinct differences in their student demographics, academic performance, and resource allocation.

Carter G Woodson Elementary has a more diverse student population, with a higher percentage of African American and Hispanic students compared to Crisfield Academy and High School. However, both schools struggle to meet state averages in most subject areas and grade levels, with some exceptions, such as 4th-grade English Language Arts scores at Carter G Woodson Elementary and 8th-grade English Language Arts scores at Crisfield Academy and High School. Additionally, both schools have high free and reduced lunch rates, indicating a need for additional support and resources for students from low-income families.

While Crisfield Academy and High School spends more per student than Carter G Woodson Elementary, this higher spending does not appear to translate into better overall academic performance. The Somerset County Public Schools district, which both schools are a part of, is ranked 23rd out of 24 districts in Maryland and is rated 0 stars out of 5 by SchoolDigger, highlighting the broader challenges faced by the educational system in this area.
