Middleton High School is now a B school as rated by the state of Florida! Hurray! Hard work pays off! Congratulations administration, teachers, students, and parents!
Middleton is a great school that is improving every year. The amount of magnet students is rapidly increasing, and my experience there has been nothing short of fantastic.
I recently moved my son from Alonso HS to the magnet program at MIddleton. The experience has been outstanding! Both the school's leadership and the faculty at the school are impressive. Middleton's robotics program is first in the world! My son is far happier and more academically challenged than he was at his prior school. I am confident that this school will prepare him for the competitive engineering universities to which he hopes to apply. I will admit that I was apprehensive about the buses in the morning but the bus driver is excellent and reliable and my son says he sleeps on the ride anyway. If you have a future scientist, mathematician or engineer, don't hesitate! This is the school for them!
Best school for STEM program and Robotics. Committed and caring staff. Excellent choice for high school.
I believe Middleton has really improved from when they first opened. the teachers seem to be more in tune with the students and it seems as if there not teaching to test, but rather teaching for a well rounded education.
im a sen10r at middleton and our school has really made a change this year and the previous year following. mr.young has really stepped up and brought us together as he would say WERE A BIG FAMILY here at middleton. there are so many graet things that take place on this campus that no one knows about! bad news spreads way faster then goid news does!! I LOVE MY SCHOOL Aa d wouldnt want to graduate from anywhere else!
I am the proud parent of an Honor Roll junior at Middleton High School. My daughter is a dancerett, math magnet student , and an all around volunteer in the community who excels in everything she does. I'd like to credit the exceptional new principal there and let him know how appreciative I am that he show concern for my daughter's grades as well as her wellbeing. I have witnessed this for myself and not only for my child but every child he comes in contact with. Also contrary to popular belief my daughter works with some of the best teachers in florida at this school. I'm forever grateful that i sent my daughter to this school and if I have my way her 2 sisters will follow in her footsteps. Keep climbing Middleton, we are behind you all the way.
It's been a great start for this school year at Middleton. I am very impressed with the academic programs offered here at this school, not to mention the leadership is outstanding. During the open house great details was put on the family first, I was so impressed I can't wait for my next one to start high school. Never have I seen a more dedicated principal and staff. Their main concern is to see these children become something great, I have no doubt my child will excel with a great school such as Middleton. I've seen great things and support and can't wait to see what the rest of the year holds.
I think it's a great school my oldest son started there when it first open he did great . He had no problems finish in 2006. Now my youngest is there his second year and love it and cousin left Hillsborough High to come for the great programs. It's on how you bring your kids up that's how they will act anywhere good or bad. It's not the school the problem !
I love Middleton High School. My daughter is a Junior and is doing fantastic. She is an A student and doing dual enrollment at HCC thanks to the dedicaction of her teachers and guidance Counselor, Mrs. Booth. I think parents need to get involved in their child's education by making sure homework gets done, attendance and meeting the teachers. We can not leave it just to the school. We must work together. I love the school so much that my son will also be attending Middleton, into the Ingeneering Program. I know the teachers really work hard. Mr. Green, the principal is going to be missed. He was there for all the students and community. He always made me feel welcome and was super friendly, always willing to help in my child's education. I prary that Middleton will get the grade it deserves.
i am about to graduate from Middleton High School and i love my school. Our Principal Mr. Green is very encouraging and tries to motivate us to strive for excellence. When i first came there were a lot of fights, but Middleton is definately coming up, there are way less fights and most of the students really want to learn. Most teachers are great and care, but others just need to leave. The magnet program is awesome, the teachers really care and want to see you do well and push you to do your best. CST is awesome! I would advise anyone who is interested in the magnet program to join it. Don't get involved with the gangs and you'll have a wonderful time at Middleton. There are ups and downs but overall its a great school
I am a graduate of the nnewly opened Middleton High School. In my time spent at the school I saw a drastic decline in teacher and faculty leadership and quality. Much of the faculty used suspension as the sole means to get rid of kids who may have just need a little more one on one attention. Not since the schools original principal (Mr. Washington) has the school had not only a principal, but staff that truly cared about the well being of each and every student. While I believe that extracurricular activities are high; safety and discipline is a major issue at the school for a several reasons. The number one reason being the lack of communication between faculty and parens. Once there is a stronger relationship here, student morale can be boosted which ultimately will improve school safety and academics as a whole.
While I enjoyed going to school at middleton, I was constantly frustrated with several of the educational tactics used, particularly with FCAT prep. Too much time was taken out of regular class in order to focus on FCAT schoolwide when only certain groups had difficulty passing the exam. I was also disappointed to find that the school board allocated their money in the wrong places, give too much to sports and magnet programs while forgetting the basics such as textbooks and other necessary supplies.
as Posted 'July 1, 2007' middleton is a great school and is rough, but does without a doubt prepare you for the real world (cough unlike buchholz) it has great teachers even though i do like many they are great, not to set aside their are gang problems but if you stick to yourself, or dont get mixed up with people like that, your 4 years here will be smooth. if you need help offered every day is tutors (teachers and students) and even on saturdays the school never stops giving, when it comes to afterschool activites you have a load to choose and new 1's each year - like gutair club going up in a month or 2, to help people learn gutair and last but not least you like math, u love math? talk to mrs. woolf one of the greatest mu alpha theta (math team) teams you can find :)
Middleton is the best high school ever. Thats my comment for all you guys haten
Middleton is full of oppertunities that my school last failed to provide. There are always so many choices layed out infront of us as students, and many of our programs are flourishing.We have a very diverse student body. Recently our FFA in the bio tech program brought home every award offered in the competition(4/4). Our math team has domninated most functions, and the most recent school production of 'The Wiz' sold more tickets on opening night than anyother previous school production here.
I had awesome teachers throughout my whole Middleton experience, but my Senior year's college transition was made a mess by some of the poor Student Affair's Staff. It was always a pain to find time with a guidance counselor, even if you tried for a week straight. This school is rough, but it definitely prepares you for the real world and forces you to take your education into your own hands. Middleton also helped me understand poverty from history's causes in the United States. I found my high school experience to be quite fulfilling.
This is an awesome school. I'm in the Engineering Magnet, and it's one of the best programs in Hillsborough County. All of the teachers here rock! They make learning fun and enjoyable. I love Middleton!
I attend this school, I must say that the campus is beautiful and well-maintained. Most of the teachers are very involved and do a good job overall. The staff keeps good tabs on the students and they discipline us fairly. There are also plenty of great extracurricular activities, I know that our CAP and AFJROTC programs are thriving. Middleton is a great high school! The other students are also really great, overall everyone is polite and personable. We all have plenty of opportunities to participate in anything we want.
My son is involved in the JROTC as well as the Civil Air Patrol program. Both are outstanding programs. He is enrolled in the Aerospace Technology Magnet program as a freshman. He absolutely loves the school and has had a great first year HS experience. The teachers are very involved and quite knowledgeable. The focus at the school is to graduate high achievers.
