This is a great school. Some teachers know how to handle thier classes (and of course, some don't). Blackboard and Parent Connect is a great "PARENT" tool to keep on-top of your kids progress. You can verify if their "story" of NO HOMEWORK is true or false. Access to emailing teachers is great when you need to check on status of something in class, or if "Parent connect" assignment does NOT match a graded paper that your child has.

Very delighted with Severn River Middle. We moved to the area specifically for the schools and are glad that we did. Arnold Elementary was a wonderful school and we are no less delighted with the experience our now 7th grader is having at Severn River Middle. The only negative about the school is the huge class sizes. Due to funding issues my son has some classes with near 40 students in them. I am grateful that he is doing extremely well considering that he is in all advance classes but if he were not doing so well and needed more attention, I am not sure that a teacher with that many students would be able to devote much attention to him.

I am s sixth grader here and LOVE this school! With the tons of people per grade level, everyone can find their own friends! Excellent education programs, and everything else! Parents say they dont like it because they dont go there! Sure people are rude, but thats life, SRMS feels like its own community, so there are tons of nice and not so nice people there! Go there if you want your child to be succesful!

Every class my son was in was a circus. My husband was a guest speaker and even then the kids were rude. Completely ignoring him and talking back. The teachers do nothing but try(sometimes) to discipline the kids all period so the good kids can't get the teacher's attention. They have thrown in the towel. Teacher ratio is out of control. 30:1 at best. Vice principle was less than helpful when we brought bullying concerns to him. Middle school yrs are usually a difficult time but this one was a nightmare. Avoid this school. Go private or move away like we did!

Seeing a downhill trend to quickly say 'No' to suggestions by new principal. Been at school for two years with another one entering 6th grade this fall. Simply holding the rudder steady during her tenure as principal is one way to stay 'safe' but it stifles creativity by studenst and staff alike.

I loved this school, there are many great clubs and teachers who are compassionate about teaching. I have to say, what I love most about this school is the music program. Props Mr.Tayman, you make us look good!

If you want your kids to do well on Maryland's standardized tests then send them to Severn River Middle. If you want them to get an education, send them elsewhere. The school is so concerned about the state tests that they spend an inordinate amount of time preparing the students for them at the expense of a real education. I would not recommend this school to others.

I think this school is the greatest school in the world. Because the techers care for all there students and one child is never left behind. I would know because I'am a student there and if I get a bad grade me teachers would help us to learn it and let us do it again. So yes this is the best school. Your student, Britney Day

I think SRMS is a great school. The adter school clubs are fun for me. They have drama club, Ophelia club, math club and lots of other fun clubs. Most of the teachers are nice, and make leaning fun for me.

I believe that the sixth graders have had a challenging third marking period. The homework is enough to make the sixth graders think, but light enough not to stress them out. The only problem that I think could seriosly affect the develoment of the sixth graders is that on the bus, a select few of seventh and eigth graders are ganging up on and bothering the younger students.

After the roof collapse in February 2003, and the roof-leakage during the summer of 2003 and the beginning of the school year began with no air conditioning, both of my daughters were very unhappy with the school. Although the test scores are very high, I strongly believe the faculty has nothing else to help raise the liking of the school. It has become very common for children to go to public elementary school, private middle school, and public high school.
