Patapsco Middle school is very good. I was initially concerned because of redistricting. I have a 7th grader who has had some struggles adapting. The school worked with us to help him get on track.

This school lacks administrative experience and leadership. It does not provide a friendly environment and ignores the bullies among kids. Moreover, instead of helping children who is challenged by the school environment, they pressure and isolate them. They handled student s incidence unprofessionally.

Having a student begin middle school was traumatic! However, we found Patapsco filled with great teachers & leadership. My son was challenged to his potential and rewarded for his accomplishments.

My child has been at Patapsco for 2 years. I am thrilled with the new principal, who joined the school at the beginning of the 2006-07 academic year. She seems interested in parent feedback and seems to run a well-organized office. The major weakness I have experienced is a lack of adequate and prompt ...  Read more

Patapsco is a school with much potential, except that it lacks competent administration. Although this school has a handful of teachers which are excellent (whose skills would be best placed at more 'progressive-minded' schools), that is not enough to give a 'thumbs-up' to support registering your child.
