This school is no longer the wonderful place that it was years ago when I moved here almost 16 years ago. Most of the teachers and staff are caring and work extremely hard for your child but the community has changed. You can see this when you go to drop or pick your child up. Parents involved in completely inappropriate conversations with foul language. This is a shame for us parents who raise our children to have respect and manners when they are dismissed into a crowd with adults who have seem to lost theirs or who never had any in the first place. What a shame this wonderful neighborhood and school has turned into. The fact that the old blue ribbon from a decade ago still hangs on the front of the school should prove as a reminder of what was and without family involvement will never be again.

I luv mse.The teachers are wonderful.My child luvs to come to school everyday.I went from bus rider to moving into the community to my child and i walking to school to get more envolved.He luvs it that much.I look forward to the 08-09 school year. Only thing i have concerns with is how the 'old' pta predsident lingered around. He never gave proper informative training to whom tookhis spot. So he felt the need to think he looked good and laughed when things went hay wire instead of giving advice to correct the issue. As a parent and as i on look to see the school suceed in all it's glory i hope fora better year. The former pta president from 07-08 school ms t.Kenny hats off to you job well done!

My 5 yr old attends Ms. A.R's class for special ed. I don't think we could ask for a better educator than her. She has devoted herself to her students and it shows. Thank you from my heart,

My 7 year old attends middlesex. The teachers and staff there make it fun for the kids. He enjoys school so much i don't think he realizes how much he has learned at times. The teachers there are very informative of how well he is or isn't performing on a regular basis. They make you feel like every day is american education week, the teachers and staff are absolutely wonderful! finally, as far as music, art, and sports, etc. Are concerned they are all a weekly or sometimes daily part of the students schedules. Middlesex school in whole is a wonderful school that you can send your child(ren) to and not have to worry whether or not they are in good hands.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 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.
