Living in Chesapeake Beach
Chesapeake Beach is a small community located in southern Maryland just minutes from Upper Marlborough along the Chesapeake Bay. It's bordered by Woodland Hills, North Beach, and Annie Hall in Calvert County and is home to about 6200 residents.
Locally known for its Chesapeake Beach Railway Station and trail, Chesapeake Beach got its start back in the late 19th century with the plan for a grand resort on the shores of Chesapeake Bay. The state of Maryland granted a charter to Washington and Chesapeake Beach Railway Company in 1891 and in 1894, they were granted a charter to incorporate the town of Chesapeake Beach. Up until 1930, Chesapeake Beach was a thriving independent community. Many people would come from all over Maryland and the Washington DC area for day trips and steamboat rides along the Dixie and Dreamland. The small resort consisted of a boardwalk, park, picnic areas, bandstands, amphitheaters, roller coasters, vendors, and amusement rides.
In 1930, Seaside Park opened and all the amusements were moved to land rather than over the water. In the late 1940s, management changed once again in the park would be known as Chesapeake Beach Amusement Park until it closed in 1972. Today, the small town still attracts visitors nationally and internationally. It's known for its Chesapeake Bay seafood Festival with delicious Maryland Blue crabs, fresh-cut rockfish, oysters, public boat ramps, local tackle shops, and charter fishing tournaments all up and down the Chesapeake Bay.
Chesapeake Beach Schools
Chesapeake Beach is part of the Calvert County public school system and most residents with school-age children are assigned to the Beach elementary school, Plum Point or the Windy Hill elementary school, the Windy Hill middle school, and the Northern high school. All of the schools received excellent reviews and ratings from parents and students alike. Some of the southern homes are served by the Huntingtown high school as well, which also receives excellent marks.
"Our fourth child is currently attending Northern High, a sophomore, graduating in 2017. Our first child graduated in 2008, our second in 2010, our third in 2014. I cannot say enough good things about the math program!! They have a fabulous AP Calc teacher, our child's junior year class, AP Calc AB all received 4's and 5's on the AP exam. Our second child goofed off in 8 and 9 grades and so the school made him take 2 periods of math to remediate, lost 1 elective, which was the best thing that could have happened!! He did great in Honors Trig by his Senior year. All those years my kids loved their math teachers. AP offerings are Lit, Lang, Calc AB, Calc BC Physics, Bio, World Lit, US Hist, Gov, Music and more. Orchestra is awesome! English hit and miss, but generally good, wish they emphasized more classics to help prepare for college. History is fabulous, Science good but not as strong as Math and History. Facility is older, getting a new one. Great offerings for journalism, broadcasting, chamber choir. Many good families at this school, our student feels safe. LOTS of homework, not busywork projects. Prepared our children well for college!!" - Great Schools.org
