Second BCPS quarter ends with continued state and national leadership

TOWSON, MD. – During this time of year-end reflection, Baltimore County Public Schools need not look far for inspiration on achieving statewide and national excellence. As the second quarter of the fiscal year ends, BCPS schools earned recognition for demonstrating a focus on student academic and social-emotional knowledge and skills:

  • Based on high achievement and community service, Jacksonville Elementary was named the 26th Maryland Blue Ribbon School in BCPS.
  • A team from Franklin High finished second in the Empire New York World Championship Invitational Mock Trial Tournament.
  • Eastern Technical and Towson high schools were named among the nation’s 500 best high schools for STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) by Newsweek magazine and STEM.org. Six other BCPS high schools appeared on Newsweek’s Top 5,000 STEM High Schools list: Catonsville, Dulaney, George Washington Carver Center, Hereford, Pikesville, and Western Tech.
  • The One Love Foundation certified Dulaney, Hereford, Overlea, and Towson high schools as Champion Schools in recognition of their commitment, during the 2018-2019 school year, to healthy relationship education.

Following suit, students, staff, and the system continue to distinguish themselves on the state and national stage:

Student Honors

Staff Honors

System Honors


These achievements build on recognitions from the first quarter of the current fiscal year.
