Mill Creek is a wonderful school. We looked at all the better schools in Calvert and St Mary's counties. The student population at Mill Creek is small enough to allow each student individual attention. (It has about 1/2 the total number of students compared to St Mary's Co middle schools.) Upbeat atmosphere. Kids come from all walks of life. Some amazing families especially those involved in PTSA activities. Friendly office staff. Professional teachers --including a couple of super-stars. Low stress environment. Kids are free to be themselves. Not much of the fancy teen apparel --thank goodness. New principal is young, inspiring and willing to make the right decision rather than the convenient. School is a gem. Highly recommend it.

My daughter attended this school in 8th grade. It was our first experience with public school and its system. Overall our experience was very good and I feel blessed that we had an awesome transition from a private christian school to public. I had a couple of run-ins with the prinicpal. That whole initial experience gave me a very negative impression of him at the beginning of the year and to be honest his ability to lead, communicate to the children or adults didn't impress me by the end of the school year. The teachers were awesome and the curriculum and programs were well planned and executed. I was impressed with the school as a whole and would recommend it. Ms. Clark Parent 2007-2008 school year

It's an exceptionally good school, but the enforcement of the dress code is very odd. the education students receive at this school is very high-quality and the teachers are very supportive. Also, moving on to Patuxent High School and into Spanish III, I realized the quality of my foreign language education was superior. So all-in-all, MCMS should be your #1 choice.

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.
