Ratings for Fort Meade-Area Public Schools Can Vary Greatly Depending on Neighborhood

As an active realtor in the Fort Meade, Maryland, area, I get calls and emails all the time from families needing to relocate to this area from all over the world.

Active-duty military personnel and others moving to work at Fort Meade often know nothing about living in the Baltimore/Annapolis/Washington, D.C. triangle, and one of the first questions many ask is about the quality of schools near the military installation.

As with almost any area, school quality in and around Fort Meade can vary greatly depending on neighborhood. Below is a list of the top-ranked public schools in the communities directly surrounding Fort Meade -- namely, Odenton, Severn, Jessup, Hanover, Gambrills, Laurel and Crofton.
