My daughter is a freshman in this school, and from my first impression, I have very high expectations. I see that from the start they have given the students the gift of freedom, and right along with that huge responsibility. I am a true believer of "boundaries"for our kids. I am confident with the this newly found freedom the kids are learning to be responsible young adult, and not prisoner s. I find the school staff to be organized, professional, and on track. I am grateful to the staff. My daughter loves the school and doesn't regret her decision. All her JHS friends have reverted there choices. I truly recommend this HS

Middle college HS is a great school that has amazing teachers, who work with you to achieve your goals. It's a small school so your able to meet with teachers after for extra help. The students are also very close since its a small school you see the same people mostly everyday. Were also allowed to eat outside of the school so its also a plus but they do provide school lunch. This school is amazing and I recommend it.

Middle College is a great place to be for both students and staff alike. The teachers,counselors and administration are all dedicated to the success of the students, as well as making it a place that feels more like a second home.

MCHS is a two story school which gives better learning experience to students with smaller classrooms. It has the ability for teachers and their students build solid relationships, which help push student's to their full potential simply because of the attention they get & need. This school has some valuable features such as freed to roam outside the premises for lunch periods, friendly and devoted staff including security, up-to-date computer labs, small and safe. Also, one of the very best assets of this school is an early college program called Excel. This allows students to enroll in classes at LaGuardia Community College and with hard work, an Associate's Degree is rewarded to student all free of charge. The only flaw is the lack of extracurricular activities despite having a very few clubs & meetings. Perhaps the students aren't interested in [b/]after school[b/] activities.

I like this high school. It is a good school because there are really good teachers, and it's a safe school there are no fights, no trouble, and it's peaceful. We get to eat anything we want, and we get half days on Wednesdays!
