At one time, our school was Mount Airy High School.

Our Location

Mount Airy Elementary School is located in the southwest corner of Carroll County, Maryland, in the quaint town of Mount Airy.  The town is shared by both Carroll and Frederick counties.  It borders Frederick, Howard, and Montgomery counties and is in close proximity to Interstate 70, making the cities of Washington and Baltimore easily accessible.

Our Building

Built and occupied in 1935, Mount Airy Elementary School has had rooms and additions added through the years.  In the mid-80's, the school received major renovations that are reflected in its current appearance both inside and out.  The school maintains the charm of its history and incorporates modern technology to enhance the learning environment, including a natural gas-fired heating system, school-wide air conditioning, and Internet access from the classrooms and computer lab. Currently we house approximately 470 students in grades 3, 4, and 5.

Our Current Administration:

Deborah L. Winson,

 Our principal, Mrs. Deborah Winson, has served in the Carroll County Public School System since 1993.  She was a teacher at Robert Moton Elementary and Piney Ridge Elementary for many years, before serving as assistant principal at Hampstead Elementary School.  In 2014, Mrs. Winson was appointed to Principal of Mount Airy Elementary.

 Catherine V. Cramer,
Assistant Principal

 After graduating from the McDaniel College BEST program I began my career teaching 4th grade. This is my second year as Assistant Principal at Mt. Airy Elementary. For eight years I taught both 4th and 5th grade. Prior to that I taught both daycare and preschool for six years. My passion is STEM education and I value the importance of reading and writing in the math and science classroom.

I am thrilled to continue in my role in the Mt. Airy community. I believe in providing our students a respectful, safe and secure learning environment where each child can soar.
