Harford County studentsoutperformed their counterparts statewide at every grade level on the most recent battery of statewide tests, and school officials say the results released yesterday show the system is on track toward all students eventually meeting the states standards.

"I'm thrilled because we have across-the-board improvements, with only a couple of exceptions," said Superintendent Jacqueline C. Haas, who heads the 40,500-student system. I think it shows the hard work of our teachers, who are doing everything to improve their daily classroom delivery.

Harford County high school students, in particular, scored well above the state standards on all four of the subject tests: biology, algebra, English and government. Harford students showed the greatest gains in biology, with 70.10909040910
