The Middleton-Cross Plains Area School District is an incredible district. I feel extremely prepared and ready to face college academics next year for I have learned a ton from the amazing teachers, programs, and extra curriculars that my school offers. I have learned wonders about time managment, organization, work ethic, and real world issues- such as money managment. One thing that I love about my school is they work to make the students aware of world affairs and political issues. Something that I think the disrtict can improve on is the diversity. The population of students and faculty in the district is mainly white. In the high school alone we only have one black faculty member. Even though the school does not have control over the racial variety of the students, I think they can work on hiring more diverse staff so non white students can have an adult they can feel connected with. However, I am very proud that I can soon call myself a graduate of Middleton High School.
My overall experience in the district has been very positive. Many of the schools have very good resources, which contributes to an effective learning environment that has the track record of effectively preparing students for post-high school experiences. Some specific areas of academics however, especially at the high school, have an apparent lack of quality teachers. For example, the Chemistry department at the high school has a very limited number of effective teachers, which makes it difficult to get a good understanding of the subject in either the entry level or advanced placement class.
