Landsdale: Top Rated Fredrick County Schools


We can’t believe the school year is starting to push into summer break!  If only the weather would stay consistent. As it relates to summer, Landsdaleis surrounded by loads of camp options and local to-do’s. However, it also means that soon enough we’ll be staring down the start of a new school year – time flies when you’re having fun!

NOW is the time to consider where you want to be when school kicks off and the Frederick County school district is certainly one to consider. Frederick County Public School is a successful school system in a diverse and growing community. Frederick County bridges rural, suburban, and urban lifestyles near both the Washington, DC and Baltimore metropolitan communities.

Our residents can quickly confirm they balance top-rate academics with the personal caring and individual attention you would expect in a small town community. According to FCPS fast facts, the following is some things to consider:

  • Maryland has ranked among America’s top states for top-quality public education from 2009-2018 [Education Week’s Quality Countsreports].
  • While Maryland continues to lead the nation in Advanced Placement (AP) achievement, FCPS students’ 3.27 mean AP exam score surpassed Maryland’s 3.03 and the global 2.84. The percentage of students with AP scores 3 or better (on a 5-point scale, where 3 typically qualifies for college credit) was 73.6% at FCPS (with 4,522 exams), 64.7% statewide and 60.3% globally.
  • FCPS achievement also exceeds Maryland averages with scores that consistently surpass national averages on the College Board SAT. Our mean 2018 SAT score was 1,149, compared to Maryland’s 1,066 and the nation’s 1,049.
  • 99% of more than 1,000 employers surveyed indicated that FCPS students met or exceeded workplace readiness standards.

We believe Landsdalesets your kids up for success as it relates to a local community of year round events, sports, academics and perhaps the most exceptional quality of Landsdale is the incredible natural beauty surrounding it, making you feel that no matter what you’re doing, you’re living somewhere very special indeed.
