Lacking in some areas of education. Language Arts is definitely a big one! There was virtually no writing, vocabulary, spelling and minimal reading. Not many choices for good schools in this area. In general, the middletown school system has declined over the past decade.... On the web site, test scores may look good, but really the language arts scores are very low for an area of this socioeconomic level. There could be an improvement in technology, as well. Some teachers are awful and should have left a long time ago ( too bad for tenure and unions for this group that we allow to care for our children)... But some teachers are wonderful. The principal is caring, hardworking and authentic.

Thompson Middle school has teachers who are committed to their students. They set their students up for future success and take a personal interest in each student.
