The Exam (copy)

Frederick County performed better than the state average and made meaningful progress in closing racial and ethnic gaps, according to test results measuring college and career readiness.

Frederick County students performed nearly 16 percentage points better than the state average in algebra on the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers test this past spring. The county outperformed the state average in nine of 14 tests.

I always wanted t join Navy but with the lack of confidence and information, I never go and apply for that. But after reading this website my confidence is increased and now I much knowledge to join the Navy. Thanks a lot for helping me fulfill my dream.


Teachers all across FCPS are amazing. One of the things that makes the Urbana area schools so successful is the value of education emphasized by the parents and the opportunities afforded by the wealth in the area. Although I'm sure there are many things those schools are doing that are best practices, I'm sure that many of the other schools in the county are doing the same things and although Urbana schools have a lot to celebrate, it would be a shame to give the impression that somehow Urbana area teachers are "better."
