Middlebury Community Schools Reviews

The teachers are fantastic, in all my K-12 years I had maybe two teachers I didn't like, and all the others I absolutely loved. I appreciate their emphasis on the arts; choir, band, and theater. I cannot speak as much to the quality of the coaches or athletics department, merely because I never did any high school sports. One thing I wish about MCS is that there could be more diversity, of over 1,000 students at Northridge High School, only a handful are black. Our largest minority would probably be Hispanic, but even then, the students and faculty are predominantly white. Also, as a member of the LGBTQ+ community, a GSA or other support system would be fantastic.

I attended MCS all 4 years of high school. I will have completed the core 40 diploma classes. Although, the my classes taught me the basics I may need for college they don't go beyond that. I would change the level of writing taught in the core 40 classes better preparing students in the future for college level writing. Outside of my core 40 classes I was largely involved in the art program at MCS. This program is excellent with knowledgeable teachers. The variety of art classes offered gave me experience with different art forms and helped me find my love for ceramics. I was also a part of the athletics program at MCS. I ran both cross country and track until my senior year. I enjoyed the sport, but did find the programs to be overly competitive with coaching that was low level leading to multi-athlete injuries. I would say when looking at MCS as a whole they fall into the average category.
Northridge High School is a good school. There are good ranking sports and the facilities are amazing. The honors academics are pretty good, but there is a great divide between honors and regular classes. There are many positive aspects about Northridge, but the one major downside is the fact that there is no school spirit or camaraderie.
