My child is completing 8Th Grade with a language magnet. As a parent, I've had wonderful experiences with my interactions with teachers and administrators. Most of her teachers were very caring and enthusiastic. Her Eighth grade Guidance counselor did an awesome job in completing high school recommendations expeditiously. They really seemed to have your child's best interest at heart. If you give of your best they will more than meet you half way! Great school, and thank you for teaching my child!

Sudbrook Magnet Middle School. My child was enrolled at Sudbrook Magnet Middle school, now in his second year in High School. If Sudbrook had not prepared him he would not be doing as well as he has done. Earth and Environmental Science was a wonderful course. All the mandatory classes were needed. My child entered High School in all Honors classes. The High Schools know our children can t be placed in just the regular classes. I'm now looking into the AP placement for my child. This was a wonderful program, and school. The structure is much better than I've seen at any school as well.

My daughter is currently a 7th grade student at the school. She didn't want nothing more than to go to Sudbrook. Since she entered in the 6th grade she has experinced a lot of bullying. The first incident was handled well by the AP. However, ever since then it has progressed. My daughter now hates the school and wants to leave. Since we've brought up the issues this year the administration has turned against us and is trying to say my daughter has a medical problem and should be evaluated by the school staff. I have become very unsatisfied with the school and the adminsitration.

I just finished my first year of sudbrook and i already miss friends that I feel I have known forever that I really just became friends with this year. I was part of helping with the eighth grade farewell and i swear every student was crying because they loved this school so much, even students who didn't really like school so much before going to sudbrook. I have seen kids blossom not just acedemically, spiritually too...Sudbrook changes lives

It is hard to rate this school because there are things that I love about it and thing that I dislike. Sudbrook has an excellent science department. Students enrolled in the Environmental Science program will be challenged. I cannot say the same for the math department. The math teachers at Sudbrook do not prepare these kids for high school. If I knew this, I would not have sent my child to this school. My child is currently in the 9th grade and I ve been told that all students that are struggling in Algebra 2 came from Sudbrook. I have been told this by two different teaches from different schools. If your child is currently attending Sudbrook Middle and is having problems in Math. Voice your concerns to administration. The math department is not doing a good job and they are hiding the problem.

I am in 7th grade at Sudbrook Magnet Middle. all the teachers are so kind, except for a few teachers who are impatient and harsh. But, the magority of the teachers are great. I love my environmental science teacher, Mrs.Baker, because she is a very active, young teacher who understands students. Which is why we have a lot of outdoor activites, and we can make-up any assignment in her class. My math teacher, Mrs.Decker is 200% better than my 6th grade math teacher, Ms. greisman. I love ms. Greisman, but she's just very impatient and she kept giving me B's when I had A+'s because I messed up on my benchmark. Other than that, I love all my 7th grade teachers. Most of the students are kind and I quickly made a lot of friends. I know the whole 7th gradem now. Overall I love Sudbrook, and all I have to say is: GO SUDBROOK!!!

I am a student at Sudbrook, going into eighth grade and i love it there!! The teachers there, for the most part, are wonderful and help us students realize our full potential. Other students complain about too much homework or some teachers being too strict but I, for one am glad that the school is cracking down on us. Sudbrook prepares us for highschool ( a lot of homework/projects and Aday, Bday schedule) and ultimately college. Although some teachers could be a little less harsh and more understanding when students are having a tough time understanding some things, overall Sudbrook is an outstanding school!

My son is going into 8th grade next year and so far I am not impressed with this school. Teachers are inadequate and lackadaisical about the progress of the students. They are more focused on belting out rules than they are inspiring students to achieve.

My child just graduated from Environmental Science program, it was sad for me to see how his school is not getting better, but the opposite. There are only few teachers that were really involved and the majority just didn t care about the students. Communication is the key and there was none of that present. The school's day to day environment is rough for the kids and administration doesn t act in the right direction. Overall teaching quality is very poor, even though curriculum is pretty strong. I would strongly advise not to send your children to this school.

As a parent who attending a basketball game at Sudbrook I was disappointed in the lack of teacher representation to control Sudbrook's students during the game. tHE STUDENTS WERE UNSPORTMANSHIP BEHAVIOR was appalling. The score keepers abaility to keep the score correctly was again unprofessional, our children just want to play the game when they score they expect to see their points accumulate not for the score keepers to say rudely ask how many points do you want and just throw 10 ponts on the score board to later remove them! PUT AN ADULT IN CHARRGE OF THE SCORE BOARD KEEP THINGS FAIR AND ABOVE ALL HAVE YOUR STUDENTS AND SCOREMAN THIS TIME WERE GIRLS BE AND MAINTAIN SPORTSMEN-LIKE BEHAVIOR. UNFORTUNATELY I WILL HAVE TO RETURN TO THIS SCHOOL NEXT YEAR WHEN MY NEXT CHILD MAKES THE BASKETBALL TEAM I CAN ONLY HOPE THERE WILL BE AN IMPROVEMENT. Teachers in our school attend the games and if the crowd gets unruly the students are spoken too and or removed from the stands. Please try to work on behavior.

This is my daughter's first year at Sudbrook and I am continually impressed. From the organization to the quality of the teachers, this school is nothing less than exceptional. My daughter has attended private schools all of her life and not only does Sudbrook compare but exceceeds some of those private schools in many ways

My daughter is completing 7th grade here at Sudbrook. I can tell the difference from when she started her magnet in the 6th grade. It was a little difficult because she came from a small catholic School with few students. The teachers are compassionate about their students and the curriculum is great.

Sudbrook has awakend the creativity and interest in academic excellence in my child. Mr. Tiller, Mr. Mitroff, Ms. Virago, Ms. Baker, Ms. McShane, Ms. Spurrier and Mr. Weddle are just some of the examples of the creative geniuses that Sudbrook has manged to attract. The international teacher exchange program in the foreign language department is phenomenal. The Sudbrook admin. is caring, effective and always physically visible to students and visitors within the building. Since Sudbrook is a large, SW district school, I do wish there was more communication from admin. and accessibility (PTA) etc. for parents as Sudbrook students are still children.

Our magnet programs are stellar. The artistic talent is astounding. I teach in the world languages; students taking French who leave with As and Bs usually can converse completely in the language by the end of level 3! However, it's a TOUGH school. It's run like a high school in terms of course load and scheduling, the students must spend extra time and practice in their respective magnets to be successful (failing a magnet could mean leaving the school) and the heavy writing and oral communication demands as well as amount of reading for all areas overwhelms even the top students at times; parents often find they are surprised at the level and amount of homework and how it took more involvement on their part than they had anticipated. Sudbrook has very high standards of behavior and academic achievement; families and teachers are expected to give extra effort and time.

I have recently finished my term at Sudbrook this year and I am now going to high school. I loved it at sudbrook. The school has an oustanding performing arts program with drama, chorus, band, strings, and dance. The school has other magnet programs such as visual arts, enviornmental and earth science, and world languages( french, spanish, and japanese). This school also has an oustanding academic hold with many student taking GT classes(gifted and talented). I am truly sad that i am leaving such an oustanding school. The best of the best. Although, Sudbrook does have a uniform, it is not extream and you can acessorize to your own liking . Sudbrook is a wonderful learning enviornment with polite and intellegent student and teachers. Eventhough there are a few students that take the school for granted and find problem in little things, they're just not use to that level of excellence.

Mr. Mitroff is the BEST conductor in the WORLD!!! don't like the uniforms though

I currently attend Sudbrook now and think it is great. I have been in 3 Sudbrook shows (The Diary of Anne Frank, FAME, and Fools). These Broadway worthy shows are directed by the fabulous Garry Tiller. I am also involved in Student Council and Peer Helpers. Sudbrook is a good environment for learning and the staff supports and encouraging us (the students). If you want your child in a good school this is the school to go to.

eight sudbrook students,7&8 graders, received John Hopkins University/ Center for Talented Youth 2007 Awards for scoring higher than the average college-bound twelfth grade student on the SAT or ACT. By my count more Sudbrook sudents were awarded than any other middle school, public or private that attended ceremony, Maryland-North. Sudbrook is not perfect, but it exceeded my expectations.

It is nice but not helpful when people who didn't like something about the school don't offer any feedback. As a parent I am a witness to the high standard of education in Sudbrook. Mr. Tiller is very creative and has great productions. As a student, I would like my child to have had the experience-and opportunity- of applause on stage. Not being picked ever has discouraged him greatly and doesn't want to audition anymore. Although in real life acting is a world of rejections I believe that at school one should have the chance to be onstage at least once to learn.

I attended Sudbrook through 8th grade, and I had the best time of my life. I go to Pikesville High School now, and I never knew that I could miss my middle school so much. The diversity was one of a kind,the teachers were excellent, and the overall spirit of the school was incredible. One of the most important things that I learned at Sudbrook was how to conduct yourself around others. Okay, I didn't completely learn that there, but since everyone conducted themselves so well, you pretty much had to act like an adult. It's an amazing sight to see the all of the immature students at my high school. I sincerely wish that I was surrounded by Sudbrook middle school kids.

There are not enough 'exciting' extracurricular activities for 6th graders. But other than that and the fact that some students are extremely ignorant towards both teachers and students, this is an excellent school. And the uniform is not really enforced. We are having the 3rd dress down day of the year. When my uncle went here, he said there were only one or two each year. But I like it that uniforms are not really enforced and we have many dress down days.

I am currently in the 8th grade at Sudbrook and I love it. I am in the Environmental/Earth Science Magnet and it was a lot of fun, and you can get high school credits. Also in 7th grade the science students can go to Smith Island which is great! Sudbrook offers unique exposure to diversity I wouldn't have gotten at my elementary school. The orchestra program is wonderful - we constantly get awards at county,state,and hersheypark festivals! The plays and musicals are awesome. The only thing I regret is not being able to stay with the same people in high school! I also wish the PTA would make their meetings later, they are always really early and that messes up the parent work schedule.

i believe sudbrook is one of the best schools in eastern usa. it has many different and unique programs to bring in students that are prepard to learn and get an education, and therefore do somthing with their lives. I was in the math, science, and computer technology magnet and by taking this course was able to learn more about computers and technology than any or middle school in Maryland.

I'm impressed by the ethnicity break down of Sudbrook. The shooting test scores prove to everyone that race is not and should not be a factor in the quality of work for students at school. It rather depends on whether the student wants to learn and suceed or rather would be 'cool'. To conclude, Sudbrook Magnet Middle School is a great school. ( Although I am a 7th grader at Pikesville Middle, like it, and doing very well in challenging courses , I still can't help but be impressed.
