The Baltimore School System
Baltimore, Maryland, is a diverse seaport city with a population of approximately 621,000 people. The metro area has a population of more than 2.7 million. The majority of Baltimore’s 80,500 public school students attend one of the 177 schools in the Baltimore City Public School district.
Varsity Tutors can help your student achieve academic success from their first day of kindergarten through the last semester of college. Parents always want what’s best for their children, and in many cases that may mean securing extra academic help in the form of a knowledgeable Baltimore tutor. Varsity Tutors helps you find the right tutor for your needs.
One way students can benefit from tutoring is learning how to be more successful on standardized tests. To see how well Baltimore schools are preparing their students for state assessments, review the chart below.
Baltimore Test Scores
Baltimore tutors can help students shine on standardized exams such as the ACT, SAT, GRE, LSAT, and other admissions tests. They also help students prepare for state assessments, including the MSA (Maryland School Assessment) tests in reading and math, which are taken by students annually in grades 3-8, as well as the MISA (Maryland Integrated Science Assessment) that students take in grades 5 and 8, as well as in high school.
Taking standardized tests requires both knowledge of the subject and test-taking skills, and a tutor in Baltimore can help your students develop both. Tutors are also able to guide students who are having difficulty with specific school subjects, but they can also work on general study and organizational skills that can benefit students in all their academic endeavors now and for years to come. Tutors use information like your child’s strengths and weaknesses, interests, goals, and preferred learning style to develop customized lessons that meet your child’s unique needs.
