I am a former student of Millcreek Towne Elementary School. I attended this elementary school for all 6 years, K-5. Without this school I don't think I would have the high level of education I have. I learned to respect my teachers and peers, to not misbehave, and so much more that is key to have a successful life. I am going into my sophomore year of high school at Magruder and I still go back and visit teachers because they had that much impact on my life. Everyone at Millcreek is friendly and caring. I would definitely recommend this school.

I will give this school 4 star. I am a parent of 2 students that finished here. They are doing very well in middle school as a result of the foundation at MCTES. My daughter will start Algebra II in high school and she is in the PEAC Program. Overall it has been a great experience. My only hang up is that it appears to me that the children whose parents are at the school regularly get first preference in just about everything and tend to control some situations.

The school is great. My child is attending kindergarten and I am impressed with his performance. Mrs. Mason his teacher does an excellent job. she send a green folder every day with stuff that I need to know about my child daily performance. I was skeptic about sending my child to public school at the beginning , but decided to give it a try. I am glad I did.

My children used to attend this school and I attended this school as a child so alot of the teachers I had as a child are still there and were teaching my children, one in particular, Judith Casey, Kindergarten teacher she is wonderful she really builds a good foundation for the childrens education. Overall this school would be 4 I guess.

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.
