One of the best reasons to make a home for yourself and your family in Pasadena, Maryland, is its excellent school performance and selection. In spite of Pasadena’s small size (about 25,000 people), residents have access to many schools with a total of 17 public and private K-12 schools in Anne Arundel County.
