Open Quote Looking at Mace's Lane history, you want to cry for anyone and everyone associated with the school. A quick look at their test results shows a 10yr roller coaster from a 2004 grade8 proficiency percentage of 20%, but then over the next 5yrs, ML struggled but climbed to 55% proficiency IN 2009. The next 5yrs with poor administration, hopelessness within the staff, and zero inclination to find a bit of discipline, the school steeply plummeted back down to 25.9% for the grade8 graduates. The School Board unanimously rejected the efforts to bring the Maryland Eastern Shore a charter school that would attempt a more focused agenda. Every year another year's class moves ahead with little if any progress and little hope for improvement. The Board of Education, the administration, and the Maryland State of Education are all to blame. Close Quote

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.
