Maryland Elementary is truly a special place. The teachers are very well trained, extremely caring, and most importantly, deeply committed to their students and the school overall. Parents are involved and supportive of one another (some work, some stay home), and communicate openly with the faculty and each other. The principal, Jon Hood, is approachable, adores his students, takes care of his staff, and fosters a supportive environment where students want to learn and are proud of their accomplishments. I cannot say enough about what a wonderful school this is and how fortunate we are to live in North Bexley and have access to such high quality education.
