Middletown High is in a diverse town, so the students all come from different backgrounds. This is different from a lot of schools where everyone is a clone of everyone else and allows students to experience different viewpoints..
One of the best parts of Middletown High School are the resources provided for the students to succeed such as the career center, guidance, tutoring after school, sports study halls, google classroom, and power school to review grades instantly.
this school is bad. there are a lot of fights and drama. the teachers are young and don't really have experience. They try so hard on no tolerance they punish the wrong people sometimes. Its hard to learn and im not geting the help i need. The only thing good about this school is the sports. You have people running around egging things on and peer pressure. i wouldnt have went to this school if i knew this before. you wont know unless you have went to this school and went through things, so parents dont have the full affect. - 2013
School is making significant strides. It is a good school, but one with greater potential. Its grads go to good colleges and its strength is is advanced level courses and extra-curricular programs. Lots of teachers give a lot of extra time to kids. Sometimes kids get nailed by silly rules, but that's a curse of schools everywhere. Great diversity in the school. As tolerant a place as schools go for gay/lesbian kids, too.
My son is a bright capable young man who loved school. Friendly and popular, he is one kid who should have graduated. He has an extreme case of sleep apnea, and missed days or would be late on occasion, but was a good student regardless. He repeated grades twice because of credit withdrawal despite the fact that he was doing well in school. Middletown Adult Ed is packed because of Middletown High's credit withdrawal. I come from a family of educators and no one can believe how easily they throw away good students.
As a student of MHS, I would have to say that I think it is a wonderful school. The amount of things that a student can do, from chosing their classes, to extracurricular activities; it's phenomenal. I feel that the people who usually do speak about this school have no idea what actually goes on in it, because they're parents. So attention parents: Just because your only child may not like MHS, does not mean it is a bad school. Did you ever think that your child's complaints could be false allegations and spoken just because they were angry? I believe parents should look into their problems more thoroughly, rather than complaining on a website for everyone to see, because if you did look into MHS, all you would see is success. Our students and faculty (including security guards, so please don't say we're not safe) are of the highest quality.
No, im not a parent. I was a student until about last week. It seems to me that those who write on here haven't really been involved in the school. Yes, we had our problems but the teachers are truely amazing (for the most part) and i really am going to miss them. I think every child has options at this school. If you are smart, take the upper level classes. If you lack the knowledge, well go to the lower classes. They honestly want every kid to learn and work at their full potential. I think people should look beyond the problems because every school has them. I also think that because it is a very diverse school people look at it differently. Hey, i love the diversity. You see differnet sides of the spectrum on a daily basis. I will miss being there so much. ~AT class of 2006!
