My child is in the excellent computer magnet program and if is was not for the magnet programs, this school should be shut down. It will never get better than an 'F' and is failing to serve the local students unfortunate enough to have this as their neighborhood school. The local students are for the most part only attending to spend time with thier friends. The administration, other than the magnet program, is horribly inadequate.
I went to middleton high school and here is the truth. The staff dosen't do any thing all day. They sit around in their offices playing solitaire. You should hope to never have to talk to any one in the office, because they are more willing to attack your views then to help you. Little or no attention if any is given to the magnet students. With out a parent present staff members will not assist a student. Every thing that surrounds that school is athletics. If your not a football player your not any one. As far as education goes the computer science teachers are very intelligent but are often restricted by the absence of funds. If i could go back I would pick any other school. A school were people can be treated equally and not based on race or soly athletic ability.
I have been less than impressed by the ability of staff to keep up with the number of students. Further, access to text books has been an issue.
I think this is a very good school in both acadmemics and sports. Its fights everyday at this school but you sort of get used to seeing those little kids get knocked out by others. But overall it is a very nice school and I look to be sending all my kids there.
8/26/05 I think Middleton is a wonderful high school and I very much appreciate the extra effort and attention given to the magnet students. My daughter is a top student there and is well prepared to gain acceptance at top universities across the country. However, Middleton's new principal has much to work on. My concern today is just getting thru the process of calling the school for a sick day or early release. I had to resort to calling the school district's superintendent's office to relay a message to the school. This problem has occurred every time that my daughter has been sick, which thankfully has only been about 3 times in the last 3 years. I don't intend to go thru the process again!
Middleton High School is a beautiful addition to the surrounding community and was very much needed. I believe the benefits of it's magnet programs are strong and need to be publicized more and continually enhanced or it will ultimately become the inner city school that it replaced. The over use and crowding of temporary buildings on this new facility's campus is a big drawback that raises the ongoing security and safety issuses that need to be addressed and enhanced! However, the overall school pride by its faculty and students is always very much apparent, positive and strong with great participation in most of its sports, music and other extracurricular activities programs.
The kids here are very well-behaved and it is a very organized environment. The school is very attractive and the administrative offices are clean and well-decorated. I am in high schools all the time and this one definitely stood out to me.
