We feel blessed to send our daughter to such an excellent school. The school meets the needs of its high-achieving Gifted and Talented students while providing a solid education to students from low income families. I believe scores on standardized tests are relevant, but they are not the final word on how effective a school is. At Harper’s Choice, kids from affluent households do as well as would at any school in Howard County, while the kids from families with modest means probably do better than they would in school made up entirely of low income students. Test scores tend reflect the demographics of the school, not the quality of the teaching.

HCMS is a great school. All three of my children have attended this school and have received a great education. The atmosphere is welcoming and engaging.

We have been at HCMS for 5 years (2 children). Our overall experience has been very positive. We attribute this to the wonderful and committed teachers. We have only had one terrile experience with a teacher -- Mrs. Prendergast. Some of the exceptional teachers are Ms. Kelly, Ms. Dymek, Mr. Mitton, Mrs. Burnett, Mrs. LaSota, Ms. Miranda and Mrs. Crandall (now retired). Mrs. Flores is also a great counselor! While we have had 3 principals in our 5 years, each has brought certain strengths to HCMS and we have been pleased with all 3.
