As a former student, I am proud to say that I graduated from Middle Township High School. It is a great school with great activities.

I was a student at Middle and I must say it is the best school in the area, especially after the Board hired the new principal, Mr. Pugliese. It's academic and sports rewards are a testament to the dedication and hard work that both the students and the teachers invest into the school district. Middle has won 14 East Atlantic Coast Marching Band Championships and the Mock Trial team won state competitions and have gone to place in National Competitions. Most teachers are very dedicated like Martina Trapani who, in my opinion, is the best asset Middle Township has. Though some things could be improved, what school doesn't have their share of needed improvements? Middle Township is a great school and I was happy to be apart of it.

Middle Township provides an excellent education. My daughter and son were involved in the Marching Band; my son in Mock Trial. My son is now in Law school and my daughter has her Masters and is a teacher. Hats off to Middle and their dedicated instructors. Parents were always welcome to be involved. Middle's Performing Arts Center is a hub for culture. Signed....a very happy parent.

I have 2 children at MTHS and I couldn't be happier with the quality of the educational program they've been involved with. The school has a sense of pride and unity as well as spirit. Both of my kids are involved in sports, band, and clubs and it seems that they have so much more to offer than the neighboring schools. We have a lot to be proud of!

The school mismanages its money. the books are falling apart, the sport uniforms need to be replaced, the walls need to be painted, and a little bit of effort needs to be put in. I'm sure you've probably heard that Middle used to be a bad school, but is better now. you've been deceived. It really is a shame because the quality of the school is very poor and it is hurting the children. They have been taught in this environment for a long time and it is hurting them more than helping them. Sure, the school is more culturally diverse than many South Jersey schools, but it doesn't make all of the difference you would imagine, I would never have sent my children there if I knew what it was going to be like.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
