This school has gone straight down since Ms Phelps left. Subpar education. This has been one challenge after another. I'm so glad my child will be leaving the school this year. This has been a nightmare!!! Whatever you do don't send your child to this school. I think this school may have hurt my gifted and talented child.

Windsor Mill Middle School is great school. The teachers are very interactive via the Engrade System that has been set up to monitor your childs school performance. Hoping that the JROTC program can be reinstalled!

WMM provides a positive and disciplined learning environment that strives towards providing students with the education and skills needed to be successful. The teachers and support staff are great! They not only provide classroom instruction during school hours, they also provide after school coach classes to ensure students success.

Great School, Administration and Staff!!

The teachers are great about communicating with the parents about the status of each child's learning progress. That's such a great communication tool. Keep up the great work teachers and staff!!!

I really appreciate the effort put forth by my son's teachers. They have coach classes to supplement teaching time and communicate through e-mails. They also have a lot of technological advances in equipment for the children's use.

I love Windsor Mill Middle School because my child is doing extremely well there both academically and socially. The teachers keep the parents informed via email on school updates, assignments, unit lessons, coach class etc. Whenever I email a teacher, I always get a same day response. I also love the GT program at Windsor Mill Middle School and the week long science field trip to North Bay - a wonderful opportunity for the 6th grade students!!! Deborah Phelps is a fabulous principal who REALLY cares about the students.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Maryland used the Maryland School Assessment (MSA) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The MSA is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Maryland. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
