Snow Hill Middle School is a wonderful school that promotes independence, critical thinking, learning through the arts, and academic pride.

Multiple venues for communication between staff,parents,students and the community. And all communication is acknowledged and addressed. We are a Maryland Blue Ribbon School and are AFG accredited and have the Worcester County teacher of the year for the second year in a row. Go SHMS!

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.
