Baltimore, we have a SERIOUS problem. The murders in the city are already at an all time high, and now students’ test scores show that 13 high schools in Baltimore City are not proficient in math.

After state testing was analyzed by Project Baltimore, it was found that 1/3 of high schools in Baltimore city last year had zero students proficient in math.

The schools below are those that had zero students proficient in math:

  • Achievement Academy
  • Carver Vocational-Technical High
  • Coppin Academy
  • Excel Acadamy @ Francis M. Wood High
  • Forest Park High
  • Frederick Douglass High
  • Independence School Local 1
  • Knowledge and Success Academy
  • New Era Academy
  • New Hope Academy
  • Northwestern High
  • Patterson High
  • The Reach! Partnership School

The schools below listed were high schools with 1% math proficiency:

  • Ben Franklin H.S. at Masonville Cove
  • ConneXions: Community Based Arts School
  • Digital Harbor High School
  • Edmondson-Westside High
  • Renaissance Academy
  • Vivien T. Thomas Medical Arts Academy

When Project Baltimore questioned North Ave about these findings, they answered: “These results underscore the urgency of the work we are now pursuing. We must do more to meet the needs of all our students.”
