I know! I've been thinking that too. Race has nothing to do with it. Howard County schools have high black populations and are still really good.

As for the PA mom, here are some of the best school districts with affordable homes:

Broadneck High School, Annapolis, Maryland: Greatschools ranking: 9/10. This high school is ranked as one of the best in Maryland, and the second best in Anne Arundel County, (out of 12 high schools). It has great test scores and academics. This high school gathers ids who live in Arnold, MD and parts of Annapolis, MD. Though there are many expensive houses in this cluster, there are also many affordable homes in the cluster, specifically Cape St. Claire. The area is very safe, and near the water

Arundel High School, Gambrills, MD: Greatschools ranking: 9/10. This high school is also ranked as one of the best high schools in Maryland, and the best in Anne Arundel County by greatschools, (out of 12 high schools). It also has some of the best athletics in Maryland. Though there are many expensive houses in this cluster, there are many affordable ones too. Specifically a few neighborhoods in Odenton, MD. The area is safe and near the water. My daughter is also a freshman at Arundel


Severna Park High School, Severna Park, MD Greatschools ranking: 9/10. This high school has amazing fine arts programs. It is ranked as one of the best in Maryland. It is a Maryland and National Blue Ribbon High School. Safe area, near the water. Though there many expensive houses in this cluster there are affordable homes in the cluster too.

South River High School, Edgewater, MD Greatschools ranking: 8/10. This high school is a Maryland Blue Ribbon high school, and ranked as one of the best high schools in Maryland It has great fine arts programs, nice athletics, and great academics. safe area, and near the water. (Though this school does have some problems with racism.)

Walt Whitman High School, Bethesda, Maryland Greatschools rating: 9/10. This school is ranked as one of the best in Maryland. is an amazing high school. the area is safe and near DC. Though there are many expensive homes in this cluster, you can find some affordable homes in the Caderock area.

Except that River Hill is the LEAST affordable area in Howard County and is one of the least affordable in the entire state.

Well, they're not the least affordable, it's just that not too many houses are for sale in that cluster at the moment. And if River Hill is too out of the question I also suggest Howard High School in Columbia. I went there for my 9th grade year. It's quite nice there too.

From my understanding, though rarely mentioned, the schools in northern Baltimore Co. tend to be among some of the best in the state.

The Eastern Shore has good school districts as well. Worcester County is pretty nice as well as Talbot County. Even some schools in Wicomico County are decent
