We love this school! It is a smaller, community-oriented school. The teachers and staff are very friendly, and are interested in what is going on with each child as an individual. The school also has a very active PTA, and people are always willing to help out.
I have two daughters that attend Middle borough Elementary and I wouldn't have them anywhere else. I love everything about this school
Middlebourgh Elementary was a tremendous experience for both my daugther, who recently graduated from Stevenson University and my wife who spend over 10 years as a volunteers, PTA official and an IA at Middlebourgh. The only bitter sweat experience was that although my wife was the most qualified (only IA with an AA Degree) the only IA persuing her BA in Special Education, and the only IA that was rated Outstanding on her annual reviews, she was bumped when the cut backs came due strictly because of seniority. This was not an administrative decision but a union mandate. One day when performance out ranks union mandates Middlebourgh will be even a better learning institution.
this school has provided my son a healthy and caring environment to help him succeed with his education.
I have been teaching 5th grade in the same room at Middleborough Elementary for 43 years. I have remained here my entire career. The community, the students, and the staff have been a second family to me. The parents and entire community are so supportive of everythng we do to help their children. The students are so eager to learn and appreciative of all that we try to do for them. The staff has always been cooperative and fun to work with. They share ideas and work together to further the education of the students in our care. I have enjoyed every day that I woke up and drove to Middleborough to work with my students. It was never a job, I loved all aspects of my teacher/student endeavors. I will miss it immensely when I retire.
I have been teachign at this school for 6 years and it is a wonderful place. Full of amzing teachers and equally amazing students.
Our school has wonderful school spirit. The students are well behaved and respectful.
Middleborough Elementary School has the best teacher, parents, faculty and staff. Each and everyone of them understand that all the work done within the school is for one purpose, the children. They make it known that each and every child prosper not only educationally, but socially, spiritually, and mentally. They understand that each child has a future that is undetermined yet. They all strive to give each child all the tools needed to grow and to help them determine who they want to be. MES teaches the children and parents that there is no limit to what a child can do.
The kids are what makes this school great. They are some of the hardest working little people I know. They take what they are given from the teachers and fly with it. If the adults in the school would let things go, the school would be more productive on the parent-teacher side of things. Middleborough has wonderful teachers and a wonderful parent base. If we as adults took what this school has, like the children have, and used every resource it would be great.
The school is great as far as the teachers and the staff go. However, the website is not updated, the Pta took forever to get started this year. The school needs to get into the 2008-2009 ages, we need internet information and a great PTA.
This is a training school for principals and assistant principals, meaning they come and go so frequently.
Middleborough school is absolutley wonderful. Teachers are very caring and informative. The new principle is tough. Just what we need!
We have been very happy with Middleborough. The teacher's are great and my children are very happy.
I have to attest also to the 5th grade family exodous (June 2005), primarily because of Deep Creek Middle School. Principals leadership, she like the teachers has her favorites and not so favorites. Teacher quality - the good ones are almost gone. Listen to parents of older kids about which teacher will cause your child stress. Extracurricular activites - none. Parent Involvement - if your child is the favorite, you'll be OK to volunteer but if not forget it. Safety and Discipline - video camera on front door and for discipline the Assistant Principal tends to deal with that, hence the constant turnover in assistant principals. Overall Quality if you can get pass the 'superiority attitude we know more than you about your child' you should be OK. You are responsible for your child's education, if something doesn't seem right, question it.
This school is great but be prepared to do something when your child gets to 5th grade. Many families who have pulled their younger children out because their 5th grader has to go to Deep Creek Middle. 25% move, another 25% send their child to a private school, some try their best to get special exceptions and others do their best to get into Parkville Middle Magnet program. As with all school you have great teachers and then you have some teachers that don't have children or boys and they really lash out on them. As for parental involvement I tried to be involved but some teachers discouraged it. Tends to go through Assistant Principals like water.
My son has been at Middleborough since Pre-K. The teachers are wonderful,caring and truely encouraging to the students. My son has acheived so much just in his first three years at this school it is unbelievable. This is my first and only choice for my daughter who will be attending in two years. I just wish that Middleborough went to grade 12. The whole staff is wonderful and they are truely dedicated to our children.
I used to go to this school but I moved when I was a child. I am still in school (high school) but if I cold go back I would take that chance. This is a great school for children. There is so many things to do at this school. I want to tell everyone hello and I miss all of you!
Our grandchildren go to this school and it has been a rewarding experience for them. The principa lis a wonderful problem solver, and takes a great interest in the children. The teachers are very dedicated.
My son and daughter both graduated from Middleborough Elementary 32 years after my husband and I did. Middleborough is the best elementary school in Essex. The staff truly treat your child as one of their own. Some teachers have been on staff since my I went to Middleborough. The teachers take a great deal of time w/each child ,ensuring a good education.
