Frederick Classical Charter School
84 Best Public Elementary Schools in Maryland
- Frederick County Public Schools, MD
Parent: FCCS is an academically rigorous environment that sets high standards for each student. It instills the awareness of virtues and uses this framework to build character. The teachers are dedicated and hard-working. The school building and location are lacking and it's shame that this excellent classical school doesn't have something better. The outdoor playground is like a prison yard and being in an industrial business park makes you wonder who is working in and around very close proximity to your cildren? Fortunately the academics and teachers make up for the logistical shortcomings. Finally, if you are not up for an environment that puts academics first, and you want sports or after school activities, this is not the school for you. Here, As a parent, you'll also recognize your young children are capable of so much more. This school is serious about education and somehow instills in children a genuine hunger for learning.

Mercy High School, Baltimore
- Private School
- Baltimore, MD
Parent: Mercy provides rigorous, challenging academics with the personal attention needed to help all students achieve success. The Women in Medicine program provides my daughter with experiences she would not have on other high schools. The McAuley Honors program and the newly introduced IB program are also strong features of the school program. Additionally, our family loves the four-year advisor program, as we feel our daughter's advisor truly knows all facets of her personality and can provide her advice and support as necessary. The Alumnae commitment to the school is fantastic, with strong female role models routinely coming back to the school to provide mentoring, serve as guest speakers, etc. We could not ask for a better school than Mercy for our daughter!
