My son recently started attending Middle College and it has already made a difference in his attitude towards school. I wish I had known about this school last year. He is now a junior and I have noticed a complete change in his attitude towards his teachers, towards learning and towards continuiung his education beyond high school. He loves going to school and enjoys his teachers. He tells me they actually teach in class instead of loading them down with busy work. Mr. Ford, the principle, is wonderful, and is involved in the lives of each student. He cares and understands them. Middle College has made a great impact in my sons educational life and I would recommend any parent iving in Williamson County to explore this option for their chidren.

i am a current student at this school. this is my first year here and already this school has made a big difference in my life. before i came here, i attended page high school. the school did not make me feel important or like i really had anything going for me in my future. after coming to middle college i realized that i can have a future and i WILL have a future.

I am a recent graduate of Middle College. I had previously attended Page High and felt like none of my teachers or administrators cared about my education what-so-ever; I had become a number in a crowd. When I arrived at Middle College, my grades exponentially improved, my emotional wellness and personal relationships became far more prosperous, and I have been forever changed due to the experience. My teachers and principal all genuinely loved me and encouraged me to grow emotionally and through my education. At Page, I had decided against attending college, and I am now a freshman at a university! Middle college brought me amazing relationships with new teachers and new friends. I can truly say that the school changed and saved my life! Very few people are as deeply affected by their school as Middle College students. Attending MCHS is the best thing I've ever done!

My daughter is a senior at MCHS. She has flourished here and has gone from a D student to one who is getting A's and B's. The difference is the caring, professional teachers and the level of attention the students receive. The bonus is that the school is based on a college campus and has allowed her an early peek into college life. The best decision we have made in her educational life.

Absolutely the best high school situation a parent or student could want! Kind, caring teachers and a principal who loves and understands kids. My child is 'gifted' and was bored and falling through the cracks at her previous high school. They actually teach students in class, instead of expecting them to learn on their own with homework.

This is a wonderful school. It provided my daughter with many great opportunities, including dual inrollment on a college campus. The teachers were kind, caring, compassionate, and great at their jobs. All around, I would rate it as the best high school experience I have heard of.

Middle College is a great high school! I am not a parent but a student attending this school, and for the first time ever I can say that I enjoy going to school! Middle College is my third high school to attend and by far the best! At Page High the teachers didn't even seem to care and 1 even refused to teach me, not knowing I had a learning disability. Teachers here help the students no matter what, and use many different teaching techniques to make learning easier and less boring. Middle College is not a big school since it is also part of a college so space is limited. 1 of the best things with this school is that only so many people are accepted, making it a drama free environment, a friendlier place, and leaving smaller classrooms so that the teachers are able to help anyone! Overall this school is definitely the best in Williamson County!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Tennessee used the Gateway/End-of-Course (EOC) exams to test high school students in language arts, math, science, and social studies upon completion of relevant courses. Students must pass the algebra I, English II, and biology I tests, called the Gateway exams, in order to graduate. The Gateway/EOC exams are standards-based tests that measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of Tennessee. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
