Old Mill Senior High School is an American public high school in Millersville, Maryland serving students in grades 9 through 12. It was occupied in 1975 and is administered by Anne Arundel County Public Schools (AACPS). The school was built to alleviate over-crowding at Arundel and Severna Park High Schools. Along with Annapolis High School and Meade Senior High School, Old Mill Senior High is one of the three IB World Schools in Anne Arundel County. The school building also houses the high school's two feeder schools, Old Mill Middle School North and Old Mill Middle School South. The school mascot is The Patriot. Old Mill excels in academics as well as athletics, including on December 4, 2009 when Old Mill won the State Football Championship against Henry A. Wise, and on December 2, 2011 when Old Mill won the State Football Championship against Quince Orchard. Old Mill also has major accomplishments in wrestling, track & field and basketball. Old Mill's rivals are Arundel High School (football only) and Meade High School.

The IB program is coordinated in Old Mill by Mr. Foxmann and Mrs. Heyman, and Ms. Klimes is the guidance counselor for all the IB students.

Old Mill High School is currently an IB Middle Years Programme candidate school, with the intention being that Old Mill will be 'whole-school' International Baccalaureate by the end of the 2014/2015 school year.
