Welcome Prospective Students to Loiederman Middle School
Education in the creative and performing arts is an integral part of the development of our students. Studying and participating in the arts is integral to our community and our society as a whole. The arts are a part of our cultural heritage, and bridges disciplines and cultures together. The creative and performing arts are what make us whole, what makes us complete. At Loiederman Middle School, the arts and academic engagement in the fine arts are an essential part of the school curriculum and an important component in the educational program of every student. Our goal is for every student to become proud consumers and advocates of the arts. Every student is an artist at Loiederman.

Welcome to A. Mario Loiederman Middle School, home of the lions. When we opened our doors in September, 2005, we established the only whole-school, arts-focused magnet program in Montgomery County. Loiederman Middle School is the only whole-school, arts-focused magnet middle school in Montgomery County. We provide a unique opportunity for students to experience an accelerated core curriculum and specialized elective arts courses in a public school setting.

A. Mario Loiederman Magnet Middle School for the Creative and Performing Arts is part of the Middle School Magnet Consortium (MSMC). Students who reside within the boundaries of the MSMC do not have a base middle school. Instead, students are assigned to one of three magnet middle schools, Argyle, A. Mario Loiederman, or Parkland, through a lottery school assignment process called the Choice process. Students and parents rank their preferred middle school choices as part of the Choice process. Visit the MSMC website to learn more about the magnet programs offered at each of the three MSMC schools and the Choice process.
