Catonsville Middle is a wonderful school. The teachers are highly qualified and are led by a passionate and compassionate principal. CMS's principal has accomplished the difficult task of harnessing all of the best qualities of its students and teachers. It has been designated a Blue Ribbon school. The principal has also created an formidable bond between the school and the parent community. Not only does this bond enable the school to access additional resources, it has created a huge upwelling of support for the school. I've never seen a school so beloved by the students and their parents. Great school, great teachers, great leadership. A flagship for BCPS.
CMS is fantastic! We were new to the area and school in January and everyone made us feel so welcome. Mr. Thorne is amazing, he is talented and a true inspiration. Mr. Eisenberg is terrific, great at communicating what my daughter needed to keep up on and she did well with him as her teacher. The school offers so many opportunities for the children to get involved. We feel so lucky to have landed here. Finally, the PTSA is energetic and truly has the kids best interest at heart.
Catonsville MIddle school is exemplorary! It is a blue ribbon school. Mr. Thorne is an elite principal. The staff at CMS is spectacular and the programming is exceptional. As a teacher for 18+ years I could not be more thrilled with the education my daughter has rec'd in her 2 years at CMS. I am most impressed with the quality of programs for choral arts, athletics, science and drama. I feel that the parent involvement at CMS is celebrated and successful. The school has received numerous PTA, school, student and staff awards in celebration of their supieriority! What a fantastic education your child will have at CMS!
Terrific in every way, thanks to a fabulous principal and teaching staff. Great drama and music departments to keep the creative kids motivated, good GT classes, nice inclusion.

Catonsville Middle School has an energetic principal who works tirelessly to ensure that students are getting the best possible education. He interacts with students in a positive manner that motivates them to want to learn. The school's climate is warm and inviting, and the teachers are dedicated professionals who truly care about children. It is no wonder that this school has such a stellar reputation. I am thrilled that my children attend Catonsville Middle School.
We moved here over a year ago, and this school is the reason that we stayed in the area. The teachers and staff are committed to the success of each student. My son had some serious problems, and they kept him safe while they were waiting for me to arrive.
Catonsville Middle is a wonderful school. My child is enrolled in the Autism program and has flourished in his 3 years at Catonsville. Kudos to the great special ed. teachers...they're the best!
I am not a parent at Catonsville Middle, I am a former student. Catonsville is an amzing school. It deserves its blue ribbon. The teachers are experienced and they will go beyond what they have to, to help you understand. Everyone is controlled and there is always order in the halls. I definitely got the best education at Catonsville.
