Dunloggin Middle School5

We moved from North over here; and my son enjoys the school a lot, and I have found the staff and especially the young principal very helpful, coordinating and courteous. And I believe the Principal along with the vice principal does have vision for the school and the student success. We the parents must appreciate that and also help to achieve the determined goals. The school teacher are skilled and wonderful people.
hey the parent who said zeros should not be given guess what according to hcpss curriculum middle school is supposed to show students events that will happen in high school with the childs actions in middle school where it does not count as much your child needs to grow the heck up or he or she is in for a very very rude awakening over at the high school
Not impressed with this school. I have heard on several occasions the teachers work here because they can't get into any of the good schools. You generally get the feeling they don't want parents around. Treat kids like they are High Schools. Middle school is hard enough, cut the kids some slack. Maybe take point away if assignment is late not a ZERO...Its MIDDLE SCHOOL.... A couple teachers are nice and actually care about students The counselors and teachers have used the EXCUSE of well you know we have X amount of kids to keep track of. I don't care about X amounts of kids..you should know MY CHILDS name. They are children not a student id number. Wish I could transfer to Patapsco Middle.
awesome school. Stellar teachers and hands on curriculum. The principal is not afraid to confront rowdy students, and very few students dare to challenge Ms. Jones's iron law. The curriculum is very challenging and never fails to exceed expectations.
Dunloggin is a very good school. Parents making negative comments need to understand that this is no longer elementary school. The children in this age group are transitioning into teenagers and that requires a different form of discipline in order to foster effective learning. Responsibilities are shifting to make them more independent and that is why the testing and repetition is stressed at this level. I think this Dunloggin is a great school and I am quite satisfied with my daughter's progress thusfar.
The teachers do a great job in spite of constant poor decisions about the leadership of the school made by an inept administration. The students had to suffer the following due to a program enacted by the Principal of this school: 7 MSA tests/per day every Monday and Friday: time taken out of core subjects, daily, to prepare for the state MSA; PE and art teachers teaching reading skills such as prefixes and suffixes; an obvious decrease in staff morale affecting the students. Until the parents complained, our children were missing valuable time away from their core subjects in order to increase scores for a state test (a 'school report card') for our school which already scores in the 90's for both math and reading. Thank goodness my child will graduate and leave this school so he can no longer be affected by this Principal's poor decisions.
The teachers here are great, it is clean, and the students do not ever bully! This is a great school, and I would recomend it. The only thing I would like to say that is bad is that there can be a lot of homework at a time. This is a great school!
