The first review... posted January 3, 2012. How funny. This student wants to use an IPad for the "AP classes". Please, make sure you learn how to write first... "accel"? "inforemed"? "trys"?

This school makes it seem as though it wants the best for its students. It trys to act as if it can keep up with the times by installing smartboards in class rooms, but godforbid if a student wants to bring in a tablet in order to keep their lives more organized and to help them accel in classes. just a few minutes ago a held a brief meeting with the principle whhere he told me i could not use my tablet , in which i made clear i would hold all responsibility for , in my AP Classes in order to help me accel. In stead he said it would be a distraction to me and it will wind up lost or stolen, like he some how kneew what kind of person i am or the responsibility to have. i inforemed him of how i could take off any games and leave it with just the note pad app., but to him it wasnt good enough. So to really cap this i think its safe to say that they dont care about kids education because had he said yes id be in class learning right now instead of using the fulltime accessablie computers, But i guess they are not distracking huih?!

All 4 of my children have gone to Middletown HS and I am very pleased with the education they received. All of my children have gone on to college and have become very successful! I give credit to Middletown HS for giving them the foundation to succeed.

This school is a joke. Do your kids a favor spend the money on a good private school. Parents do your homework visit the school ask questions. I took my child out of this school because they begged it was so bad. I should have listened when people told me delaware public school were among the worst

For delaware public high schools, i would say that middletown is among the top. The school offers students with the tools and opportunity they need to succeed and use on into college. Some people tend to think that their child will magically have academic success due to a schools reputation, well wake up! Its the students that make the school not the school that makes the students.

I have been in this school for four years and it is honestly the most UN-organized group of administrators I have ever meet. From disciplinary to scheduling the classes that are offered in the school. For lack of better words it is retarded.
—Submitted by a student


Posted February 29, 2008

The school has become very overcrowded and impersonal. The kids and staff do not seem to trust the administration. Main office is not very helpful or friendly.


Posted September 21, 2006

AP/Honors courses are hit/miss. Some teachers do not know the material themselves, so they rely on handouts and homework with very little lecture on theory. Outstanding social studies, biology and music programs due to teachers. Math was a strength until the top teachers went to administration positions. Overcrowding an ongoing issue which should be alleviated with new high school opening. Sports are dominated by football and basketball. Parental involvement and complaints gets attention to other sports. Sports do well due to large population, but will decline when new high school opens.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted March 24, 2006

The academic program is solid. I wish they had some type of gifted and talented program in school district but they don't as of yet. Extra curricular sports are available but excessively so for girls. Currently the sports teams are highly competitive due to the overpopulation. The music and performing arts departments are impressive. In one more year and new high school will be in place. So for interested parties the strained times are short lived.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Delaware used the Delaware Comprehensive Assessment System (DCAS) to test students in English language arts and math in grades 3 through 10, in social studies in grades 4 and 7, and in science in grades 5, 8 and 10. The DCAS is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Delaware. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
