A disappointment overall. Unfortunately, even in the Honors level courses, my daughter was not challenged. She had more homework in 5th grade. While there were some wonderful teachers, especially in her 8th grade year, some of the teachers are not accountable for their lack of performance or inability to teach. New principal this year seems to have helped with communications between staff/teachers/parents.

A student's opinion- I recently moved to the area, and it is very hard to break into everyone's cliques. Since everyone has known eachother since kindergarten because only myersville and Middletown elem. feed I to the middle school. People are nice, but not looking for friends. It's hard on your self-esteem.

WIth a new principal, the school will move forward with better educational programs to motivate students. The communication b/t the new principal and parents is already 100% better than last year. My son has said that he doesn't see any bullying, likes all his teachers and is encouraged to follow his interests.

Middletown has been wonderful for my son. He actually enjoys school. The teachers care about the students. The parents are involved. The band program is wonderful.

About the tests


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.
