I chose staff member for this school because there are four distinct employees who serve in totally different roles, but all have a positive impact on my children daily. Mrs. O is new to the school and brings excitement & passion to the 3rd grade. Mrs. Penny has taken on the Principal's position but continues her exceptional attention to each child. Ms. Mason is a TA who has the attention of every child, and Mrs. McKinney is the smile in the front office that greets you everyday. If Mrs. McKinney has ever had a bad day then we've never seen it!
Thank each one of you and all the staff there for loving my children like your own.
The teachers and staff at Midtown care for the students and use creative and innovative learning techniques to keep the students engaged. The class sizes are small and it has a true community feeling. The families work together and gather as groups outside of the school setting to foster a strong bond between students. All issues are addressed and dealt with appropriately and the staff seem to love what they do.
Midtown academy is is good school. It teaches kids a lot of new things like states in alphabetical order, geometry, they do science experiments, they teach kids about ancient Greece and many other things. No wonder why my mom has kept my here for 4 years. This is the best school ever.
Midtown has top-notch teachers and excellent administrative staff who have been with the school now for a long time to the benefit of the students. This type of stability and quality is rare in schools, especially in Baltimore City.
This is our 3rd year at Midtown and we love it more than ever! The school's focus on building community and creating an environment where children from different racial, ethnic, and socio economic backgrounds can learn and grow together, is unique in the city of Baltimore. The administration is focused on the right things and the emphasis on students respecting themselves and others is always present. The building facilities are the one place Midtown could really improve, but teachers and administrators have worked cleverly with what they have to work with. We feel lucky to be a Midtown family.
The small size of Midtown allows for a more a personalized experience compared to a larger school. The teamwork and comraderie between teachers and with the principal and staff is clear. We have a second grader and will send a kindergardener to Midtown next year.
