There is currently a project entitled: "Mission:Possible" to try to raise money for technology in the classrooms(i.e., Smart Boards, laptops, iPods, etc.)[citation needed] Based on a survey, many students in the school are happy with the changes that teachers have made on the way they teach the curriculum (using technology such as smartboards and laptops), but some are unhappy because they believe that they don't have as much one on one interaction with the teachers.[citation needed] Severna Park has one of the best MSA scores in all Maryland.[citation needed] Severna Park's motto is "Park Pride".

On 2010, the school was renovated, including a new Chesapeake theme because Severna Park, Maryland is close to the Chesapeake Bay.
