This school is horrible. They have these bully groups called squads. They will start fights with your child for no reason at all. They are just thugs plain and simple. Forget trying to get the staff to help because they have to keep everything equal meaning your good student has to be put in the thug category to survive. Political correctness on steroids.

Do not go to this school, i repeat do not go to hdg middle, i mean the high school is okay and the elementry schools are fine but the middle is terrible. the teachers constantly yell at kids and insult them, complete rasim and terrible bullying by students. Lots of fights have been reported, students getting depressed, lots of cussing and rude gesters, the counslor doesn't even help you if you have problems. they send you right to the office if you have a problem and they can't apperently fix it. I think the problem is, is that the audlts don't know how to properly handle the kids and part of it is because of a mixture of races and different people. If you think aberdeen is bad and edgewood, you have another school on that list.

I am very disappointed in this school. I write the teachers to get progress on my daughter and the teachers actually ignore the emails. They do not update the edline until after the quarter is over and my daughter already has a grade I don't approve of. This is a very, very poor school that does not let you know anything that is going on until after it is too late. If you can avoid this school at all, please do so. The teachers don't care about the students and don't bother to let the parents know what is going on.

My son started going to Havre de Grace Middle School in 5th grade and so far it's been a horrible experience for me because my son has been failing and the teachers don't tell you nothing so you are clueless until you receive their report card. SURE, there's "Edline" but people have busy lives. I think the most important thing about a school is COMMUNICATION between teacher, parent and student. This school doesn't care about their students because if they did, they would be doing everything they could to help my son in the areas he is weak in. I am as involved as I can be, emailing the teachers all the time and checking Edline. One time I even asked the teacher to please tutor my son in math after school but she emailed me back and told me she doesn't really think he needs tutoring. WHAT THE HECK?! If my son is getting poor grades than he DOES need extra help! LAZY teachers! This school is seriously driving me to send my son to a private school! I am so disappointed with this school because Havre de Grace is such a nice area but this school is HORRIBLE!

I was worried about sending my 7th grader to middle school for the first time this year. We are a military family and the last state we were in, elementary went up to sixth grade. We had a rough first couple weeks as my son tried to get used to it. It was hard since the teachers did not know he was new to middle school so he was spoken to like he already had a year under his belt. However, once I spoke to the teachers and they understood where he was coming from, things improved greatly. The guidance counselor and teachers helped him when he needed it and help set him back on his feet. My son likes his teachers and his classes well enough. He's not fond of most of the students, however. He complains about students trying to trip others in the hallway. He is very excited to start robotics this year and I'm very pleased the school is able to offer this. The computer teacher's enthusiasm over this class was evident. I think as far as middle schools go, we hit gold. The teachers care, I'm not worried for my son's safety, and even his bus driver seems to know how to deal with them.

This is an annoying school that doesn't take anything seriously. Ths students are rude and judgemental and there are many cliques. There are fights and racist comments 27/7. This is probably one of the if not the worst school i've ever been to and i've been to many. The teachers are good but the students (most of them) are appaling!

This School was everything to all the students I grew up with, Yeah, Mrs. Hollaway, was always on my case about centain issues. But By Far This School to me has proved to be one of the ones where everyone gets along and The drugs are going down, The kids are straightened up and Wow, Havre De Grace Middle is everything I could ever imagine and more, If you ever send your kids here, Make sure Miss Milore talks to your child, She was great for me and I was a handful. The Teachers will bend over backward for their students, But Miss Milore is by far the best in this school.

I am somewhat dissapointed inthis school. We applied for and recieved a boundry exception because I beleived this school was the better of what we had to choce from. it seems that all Harford Co. schools are lacking when it come to chalenging students that are ahead of their peers. My son has told me repedetly that he is board and wants to be challenged. I have asked for him to be givien more challenging work and it has not happened. He is in the top classes and still needs to be more engaiched. Over all the school if fine if your student is below ot just at grade leavel.

A gem of a school. The teachers are very caring. Mrs. Holloway is a dynamic administrator.
