Myself, daughter and grand daughter, who would be attending your school will be moving to the area at the end of June. Please send me some information about your school so that I can relay this to her. Hopefully, this will make her feel more at ease with attending there.

This, by far, was the best public school I attended. Currently, I am enrolled in a local public high school, and I found that the education I received at Shiloh greatly surpasses that of the one I am receiving in high school. The teachers at Shiloh were more constructive, hands-on, and attentive to their students' needs. They did not teach so that their students would pass the state tests, but rather taught so that their students would absorb the knowledge they needed for the future. With the exception of a few teachers, the staff is wonderful and friendly. The school is easy to navigate, and offers a variety of great courses. Their fine arts program is wonderful, and they offer a great variety of after-school activities that appeal to everyone. Two thumbs up!

My daughter has excelled at this school. The teachers and staff are wonderful. They make you and your chid feel welcome and like you are all a big family. There are so many activites for the children after school to participate in. My ownly issue is the chorus/music teacher. She tends to favor certain children and I think does a poor job as far as that is concerned. Although the Band/Orchestra teacher is the best. He really cares and it shows. As most of the staff really truly cares.

Bullying and disrespectful treatment of students by other students - outright hurtful. Administration does very little to correct & asks what did your child do to cause - not good. Do not receive help when asked have to demand for child-even when 504 in place. Teachers talk to teachers fr: year to year & form rollover impressions of child based on another teachers opinion & treat child in same hurtful way - if parent forces teachers to teach, the teachers treat the child differently or more harshly. Very disappointed in administrators and teachers lack of handling and treating of student issues and problems and lack of willingness to go the extra mile to ensure a child is grasping all lessons taught. I am a very sad & frustrated parent who may pull my child from this school before irreparable damage is done.

My daughter has had a bullying problem in this school for the past 2 years and this school had done a poor job of handling the situation when they were made aware of it. The administration as well as the teachers were made aware.

Shiloh Middle is the best school! The teachers are great and very understanding. The rules are reasonable and fair yet strict where they need to be. Everyone is friendly and nice. The extra after school activities are endless. The work is challenging but doable with lesson from the teachers.

In 2012-2013 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.
