This school is really crowded. It gives way to many homework. Some of the teachers dont pay attention to you please DONT SEND YOUR KIDS HEREEE

If you're in the zoned program,you're looked down upon by teachers,staff,and students in the gifted programs. The school is sort of racially segregated. The blacks and hispanics are in the zoned program while the whites and asians are in the specialized programs. The hallways are very overcrowded and you'll arrive late to most of your classes. Teachers cant really help you because of the large amount of students they deal with,so if you're struggling in a class,it's up to you and your parents to fix that. Some of the teaches dont know how to control a class and the kids just go crazy. I've had a couple of good classes where the teacher is good and students are polite but the out of control classes I've had out number that ratio. This school has many sports and after school clubs. Overall this school is only great if you're in the specialized/gifted programs. When you're in the zoned program it's not very good. The school should look more into improving the zoned programs and not make us feel like we're inferior or lower class to the gifted kids. I would not send my kids to this school.

Loved my experience at midwood. Considering the limited funding and overcrowding I think the teachers really did their best. I felt very prepared for college and later grad school.

When I attended Midwood High School, at first it was a bit intimidating. To attend a public High School with 5000+ individuals in the program at first glance seemed like it would be a challenge however that was one of the best parts of the school - its diversity. I cannot begin to tell you how many friends I had made from various backgrounds and mentalities. This school has definitely forged a lot of lifelong relationships that mean the world to me. Secondly, in terms of the academics if this were to be evaluated as it relates to the specialized high school test, Midwood would come right there with the other "major schools" (Stuyvesant, Brooklyn Tech, etc).

As an alumni of Midwood HighSchool, I have a lot of good memories to hold onto. Most of my teachers were all very memorable and efficient. I recall working very hard, and it paid off, as it was reflected in grades. In the Medical Science Program, my teachers were resourceful and even though the work level may have been intense at times, the teachers made it interesting and I can look back at high school knowing it was a success and helped me get to where I am today. Also, even though the school is incredibly crowded, I felt the different schedules for freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors made the process relatively smooth and organized.

I would say that high school was one of the most important times in my life, and Midwood High made sure of that. I am now a junior at Cornell University, majoring in Chemistry and soon graduating, then returning to Cornell to obtain my Master's in the Arts of Teaching to hopefully go back to Midwood and teach Chemistry, Physics, and Math there. It is a phenomenal high school where students are listened to, and they have a special relationship with their students. Though students might be concerned about the school size, I want to reassure them that their students still have plenty of time to interact with parents and form life-long friendships they'll never forget. Also, Midwood offers many AP courses, their athletics department is great, and students can explore other facets of their life that they have interest in. Midwood is one of the best overall.

Midwood is the best institution for learning after junior high they well prepare you for college despite their lack of funds and have dedicated teachers who make sure u understand and remember material by either finding easy ways for u to remember or by bringing in videos or games that relate to the topic.at Midwood they believe you can do so much sometimes their expectations are higher then your actual ability and the grading is sometimes harsh but it is a loving atmosphere with the family affect.

Midwood is a great school because it has the great programs like medical science and humanities. There are many sports teams for both boys and girls and are multiple band programs with great teachers but we need money for these programs, especially band.

Even when it seems like school is weighing down on you, at every corner there are always friends. Everyone's just really close to eachother here and it's great that no one can feel lonely because at every passing you'll eventually bump into one of your friends. [:

I attend Midwood High School now. I must say it is a wonderful school, with many talented kids. The only reason that Midwood comes of worse than Brooklyn Tech, is because they dont have a collegiete (zoned) program. I loved Midwood, and the school gives you so much support, I was able to achieve a 98.57 average.

I attended Midwood High School for a short amount of time. My experience wasn't bad, I just didn't take advantage of everything the school offers. The school is a very large school, I was just intimidated by the size.

Midwood high school is a great school. My daughter is graduating this year and has done very well. She is in the humanities program and has been accepted to schools like Wellesley, Bryn Mawr and Binghamton. She was accepted to 9/12 of her schools! My daughter took advantage of all of the clubs and teams and programs midwood had to offer. The large population opened her to a variety of kids. She has met students from Egypt and pakistan! Midwood has been a wonderful experience for her even though the work load was difficult at times. Overall it was an excellent school.

This school isn't as good as people say it is. There are a lot of schools that are much better than midwood and don't require a 90 average to be accepted into it. I transferred out after going to midwood in 9th grade and went to Br-Tech. It was one of the most important and best choices I have ever made.

This is a very large school. Freshmans will get lost when they first enter the school. Many problems will occur you have to be dedicated to do well in this school. Only the MSI program is good. Trust me there are better schools out there.

The academic quality of Midwood High School is excellent. I myself am a student and I can say that I have learned so much to help me prepare for the future and things dealing with real life. The extrcurricular activities are enormous. We have everything from a debate club to cheerleading to math teams. Parent involvement is excellent also. The parents have meetings almost monthly and discuss several differnt ways they can help Midwood High School remain succeeding now and in the future.The teachers are fun and respectful and so are the students. Violence is definetly not a problem. I would highly recommend any student to apply to Midwood because it is an excellent school.

Midwood High School students are taught with very good education but the school is over crowded. The teachers meet with over 5000 students daily and theres lots of fighting in the zoned program. Students try to get in Midwood mostly beacause of the sports activities.

The medical/science program in this school is great. However, the school is overcrowded. This results in students starting classes as early as 7am. They need more funding to expand.

it is a very excellent school. i have many family memebers that hve attened and have excelled in many differnt areas such as track, basketball, and many other sports at this school. I would recommend this Midwood to anyone who is moving to the area. It has great technical academic programs and is good for young adults of all ages. I recntly have had a family member graduate from this school and currently have another attending on her way to excellance. There is still the petty teen problems, but is not out of hand. There isn't much gossip and the administration is amazing. I love this school and enjoy hearing the many stories my family has to tell about attending Midwwood. I look forward to moving back to the are and can't wait till my children are of age and academic level to attend this school.

I truly feel that it is the best school ever. Classes here are really tough and the teacherts know that this school has a high academic reputation in colleges and therefore, getting an A on your report card is tough. The kids in the gifted programs are very compettitive even with 99 averages, kids at Midwood wil still compete for a perfect score and have high expectations for themselves. The typical Midwood kid has sure fire dreams of geting a 2400 on the SAT, AND geting into Ivy leagues. You have to be blind to not see that Midwood is a science high school, we have had semi finalistsin the INTEL science compettion since 1980 consequetively! In the halls, this is all you hear kids talking about, thier intel resaerch even freshmen! Sometimes its academic standards get annoying, they expect you to be geniuses.

Midwooh Highschool's education standard within the gifted programs(Humanities and Medical Sciece) is unrivaled. There are downsides though, the school is over crowded. The building was designed for 23oo students however midwood harbors over 4000 students. The schol is also a zoned scchool and a screened school. Those that are not within the gifted programs just lowers the school's credibality. Midwood is based on choices, there are over 38 non-physical clubs. With the exception of being a zoned school, midwood is unrivaled except for a handful of schools, like stuyvesant and bronx science.

Excellent school where students can actually interact with their teachers on a personal level, therefore you can be sure that there is a feeling of comfort, and you get assistance at any time. I say this being a current student myself at Midwood.

Excellent school. Great social and academic experience for a wide range of students; traditional, rigorous inquiry with (mainly) excellent teachers. Motivated students will be challenged; real-world mix of kids, cultures. My daughter loves it - except the French teacher.

Mdwood High School is a good school. There is hardly any violence and if by any chance there is, there are police officers and security guards swarming the place. Therefore, parents can be positively sure that their children are safe.
