If it was focused on developing these characteristics, it would do an assessment of all children entering the school from other states to make sure they were appropriately placed to ensure these things at appropriate levels.

I heard good things about this school and enrolled my son. It's safe and all, which is important, but I'm deeply disappointed in it. My son excelled at math and when we moved here from California, the school placed him in an average math class and when I told the teacher he needed to be moved because he wasn't challenged, she discouraged it. However, a few months later I get a call from her stating issues... which were a result of him being bored. He basically lost a year in math and is not interested in it anymore. Now I'm paying for him to get back where he used to be when the whole purpose of us moving into this area and paying the cost to live here was for the great reputation of the school. HUGE disappointment.

EMMS is a wonderful middle school. My daughter is half-way through her first year there. I like that there are no bells. Although there is a lot of emphasis placed on acheivement, the school counselors and teachers have been very understanding and willing to work with my daughter's mental health issues, once they knew about them. (Anxiety and depression have challenged her ability to complete assignments.) The school is clean and the teachers and staff work hard to prevent and stop bullying.

This is an excellent school. It has supportive teachers and administration. The staffs at the front office always very friendly and offering help. The school psychologist Dr. O is professional and patient.

My son has not been at the school long. It's a pristine school - very clean, and seems disciplined. One criticism is that the 'placement' tests were never explained, which isn't helpful since we are foreig. Hope to have more positives to add as our relationship with the school grows.

Not only does the principal have a no-put-down policy, where negative or derogatory comments are not accepted, but he and the teachers are devoted to the students. The teachers all strive to help their students achieve success. I am a student at Ellicott Mills Middle School, and I feel that I am getting one of the best educations I could get in middle school. All of my teachers are instructive and fun! Each teacher has different teaching styles, but they change them sometimes so that everyone understands the material. Everyone is nice to each other and I feel that EMMS is one big family. All of the staff and students are helpful, and new students fit right in as if they have known the other students for years. Ellicott Mills Middle School is an excellent school for learning, morals, kindness, and friendships. (review done by a current 8th grader at EMMS)

This is the best school bar none I have ever seen (and I worked in the educational system for many years). The principal is very dedicated, in charge, and a true leader with vision. He sets high standards for all, and creates effective pathways for teachers, parents, students, etc. to meet these standards. Because he puts forth 110% effort, he expects (and will accept no less) from others. The atmosphere of the school is positive and carefully cultured to emphasize values, responsibility and integrity. This school is a very shining example of how wonderful a middle school can be.
