I attend school here, and I can honestly say that this school has done nothing to help me. I come to school every day with bags under my eyes, and not once has any teacher said anything about it, Also, I have witnessed students yelling out racist and sexist comments, and the teachers have barely done anything about it. If you're trying to get special help because you're struggling, forget it. All students are treated as if they are all at the same level of learning, regardless of if they're smarter than usual, or if they're really struggling.

This school is HORRIBLE! I was told it was and let my son go to give it a chance and they were right. If your child has any learning disablilities you can forget the help or SUPPORT. There is no parental or teacher support at all. If your chid is nice you can bet they are going to push them through. Lunch time is nothing but bullying grounds. THey send the children outside after lunch to stand around and pick on each other.. they could walk the track but it is not allowed and forget the swing set... there isn't one! NO PLAYGROUND at all..All they try to do is teach the standardized TEST and they have trouble doing that....They have changed principals every 2 years except last year. No one seems to have a good plan to get that place under control. All of the teachers and the administrators need to get on the same page and communicate. All I can say if you have to send your child there... GOOD LUCK because that is all you have.

This is my childs second time in this county. After moving back from Florida we thought we would give it another try. NO homework at all this year and she is in 7th grade. Last year same thing. She went to K-2nd here also there were major problems also needless to say I have a huge problem believing that they get a 6 out of 10. Check out more about this school before you choose this over private if you are moving to the area. If you need Special Ed I know several parents with children in need of SE and they are fish out of water in this county. Looks like this will be my childs last year here she wants to go to college and you need to know more then what they are teaching.

Easton Middle is the worst school I have ever been to. The A B C D E F lunch system does not work. The walls are ugly and I don't feel safe. Do not go here. I am not challenged and I need to be.

The staff are lazy and don't help you when you need it. They say they do so many great things that is hard to belive. The work is easy and people there aren't that smart

When my daughter was in the Carroll County school system she always seemed to get extra help with math when she required help. They placed students in the appropriate level for their abilities in math and reading. In Easton middle all the students are placed in the same level. My daughter tells us that she does not feel challenged. She was always placed in the higher learning levels in Carroll County and now at Easton middle all students are grouped together. Therefore, not being as challenged as she could otherwise be. I feel this is not fair to all the students that are at a higher level because they are being drug down and held back to accommodate the slower learners.

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.
