This is my daughter's 1st year and she hates it. Students are very disrespectful to their peers and the teachers. There seems to be a lack of control in the classrooms.

Montgomery Village Middle is a great school because they have great staff members who care about their students. They are 'Proud to be in the Middle' and are creating an atmosphere that students can learn in and will take their experience with them to high school to continue on with their success. Yeah MVMS!

Montgomery Village Middle School was fun. The staff are knowledgeable and able to help the students. They also care a lot about them. Their Englsih Department is outstanding. They really prepare you for the writing in High School. The Band is awesome too. The songs are great and you play at your level. They also had a drama club. The plays were cute and it made you consider many other careers. I loved it there. It was the best.

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.
