Maryland Schools Support Military Families

April is the Month of the Military Child

The Maryland State Department of Education is focused on educational excellence, workforce readiness, and child care delivery. The Department’s webpage provides families with a wide array of information about Maryland's local school systems. Maryland.

On this webpage you will find links to Maryland’s 24 local school systems; security clearance information; and publications and materials that are topic specific or that provide a snapshot of Maryland’s education excellence. In addition, you will find information related to Teacher Certification and transfer; STEM education; the Gifted and Talented program; Minority Achievement; Environmental programs; Autism; Child Care; and Career Technology Education. If you are looking for information specific to a Maryland public school system or school, please visit www.mdreportcard.org which offers assessment and demographic information accountability.

In Maryland we remain focused at making our education system the best in the country – and we’re succeeding.

In 2013, for an unprecedented fifth year in a row,

Education Week ranked Maryland’s schools number 1 again in the nation in its Quality Counts report on high school graduation, student achievement, academic standards, and accountability.

The College Board also ranked our Advanced Placement (AP) program number 1 in the nation again, ranking first nationwide in the percentage of public school students scoring 3 or higher on at least one AP exam.

You can find brochures detailing all this wonderful news on this website under publications. I can assure you that MSDE will continue to work with all school systems to ensure our State remains at the top – especially as those affected by BRAC begin to call Maryland their home.

Thank You and Welcome to Maryland!
