About the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers: The 2014-2015 school year marked the first year that students in grade 3-8 and high school took the PARCC assessments in English Language Arts and mathematics. PARCC complements, but does not replace, the existing Maryland School Assessment, which assesses performance in science in grades 5 and 8; the Alternate Maryland School Assessment (for students with disabilities); or the Maryland High School Assessments in Biology and Government. In addition students take other assessments such as the National Assessment of Educational Progress and college Readiness tests like AP and SAT.

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
