Watkins Mill High School is on the upside. The principal, new for the 2010-2011 school year is a breath of fresh air. It's telling when the students are happy to see him at after school events.

Its size and diversity discourage the formining ...  Read more

I totally agree with you! There is no middle ground at watkins mill. You are either in an AP/ IB student, excelling, or you're on level student, struggling to pass an easy class.

This school has made a significant turn for the worst this year. Many of the most motivated students have been moved to a new high school. The new principal rarely comes out of the office. I have one senior who is graduating (While the school has great teachers - it also has a very high drop out rate ...  Read more
