We think our daughter receives a great education at at MHS. The teachers are highly-skilled and the school has many resources and extracurricular activities. She has done very well on her college entrance exams and plans to go to a top college. I question this site's rating system if it does not give this wonderful school and community a great rating.

MIddlesboro High School is a great school. They have a strong program for college bound students which successfully prepares them to compete for college admission nationwide. The school focuses on supporting and accademically challenging less fortunate students as well. Traditionally, MHS has been viewed as one of the best high schools in Eastern Kentucky.

Our children do well and thrive at Middlesboro High School. The educators and the supportive community help the student exceed and train them to compete in the larger world. We try to focus our children on academics, however, the school's sports and arts programs are wonderful, too. The Middlesboro community is fortunate to have such an historical and proud instituion to educate its youth.

Being a graduate from Middlesboro 3rd generation grad from Middlesboro High School, and a recent grad myself I feel that Middlesboro high school has alot to offer to those students who want it. I have found that most complaints from Middlesboro high school come from those that wish for everything to be given to them no matter if someone else sought after it harder, the guidance at the school has several workshops for college enrollment, but are optional to the students so that attention can be given to those whom seek it. I have went on to college as did several of my classmates. Drug issues are big in the mountains of south eats kentucky, as well as in the inner cities of large metropolitian areas. However I have never personally noted out of my 4 years at MHS drugs being freely given and not persecuted.

Middlesboro High School is an awful school. Drugs seem to be an extra-cirricular activity. Unless your child plays sports or is a cheerleader they do not count. Middlesboro in general is an awful town which is why Im moving asap. The education level at the high school leaves alot to be desired. And more times than not when Ive had to go into the office for something I am over-looked until I finally just say 'exuse me I was next' When a problem is finally addressed. The staff is under the very false impression that drugs are not in their school when in fact drugs are done on school property including the bathrooms. Bell Co. schools are no better, so do your child a favor and live somewhere else!

The organization of the school is awful. There are constantly violence and drug issues. My daughter has been discouraged from taking higher level classes when applying for college was given minimal assitance, if any at all. Furthermore she will be declined admission to some of the schools she applied to because councelors have not mailed out transcripts to requested schools. I am overall very disappointed with the performance of MHS and regret sending my daughter there at all.

My daughter is currently attending MHS, and she absolutely adores it, the staff, the atmosphere, and the class size, as well as being with friends. I am also pleased with the education my daughter is accomplishing, she has attended Middlesboro all of her life and has always been a great student. She also loves to play sports, for the well known, greatly feared 'Yellow Jackets'! Keep up the great work!

I have three teenage daughters, one has graduated from MHS, one is a senior this year, and one is a freshman. My kids have done very well at Middlesboro High School and I have, overall, been very pleased with the education they have received there. All have been or are honors students. My first daughter has also graduated college with honors and gone on to work on her Masters, also with high honors. Way to go Middlesboro!
