Our School’s Story
Windsor Farm Elementary, which opened in 1989, serves the Broadneck Pennisula community which is located on the outskirts of Annapolis, Maryland. The school was named after Mary Windsor, whom the land was purchased from to build the school. To this day, the school is suurounded by woods and multiple horse farms. Windsor Farm is not only a school with historically good student achievement as measured on standardized assessments, but also offers many extra curricular activities to support the whole child. Some examples of these activities are our theatrical productions (Aladdin, Annie, and Willie Wonka in prior years), Chorus/Band/Strings, Seaperch, the Science Fair, Art Club, 24 club, Dance, Girls on the Run, Hero boys, as well as additional opportunities. Windsor Farm is also very fortunate to have strong parent engagement, and a PTO that works tirelessly to fundraise and facilitate events that focus upon families and students.
We continue to grow as a school today. Currently we serve 549 students. 70% are Caucasian, 15% hispanic, 8% African American, 5% Multi-racial, and 2 percent Asian American.
In terms of student achievement on the most recent standardized assessment data (PARCC) we have many celebrations. The following percentages reflect students scoring in PLD 4 and 5 at Windsor Farm in Language Arts:

In addition to PARCC data, the most recent reading assessment data (Fountas and Pinnell) in grade 2 indicates 85% of students are reading at or above grade level upon completion of grade 2!
