Middleton-Cross Plains Area School District Reviews

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.

Middleton is a nice school with very nice staff and teachers. It's built for students to succeed starting as soon as the freshmen enter the building. However, I transferred to Middleton in the summer before my junior year. At this point, everyone had essentially made their friends and were far enough involved in their activities that I couldn't really get ahead in any of them. Seniority never applied to me. Despite my devotion to my co-curricular activities regarding choir and music, I never felt like I got the roles I should have, simply because I was an outsider.
I wish I could go on and on about how wonderful my experience was, and how many friends and relationships I made with people due to the excellence of Middleton High school.
I recommend this school to white upper-class freshmen.
We had a student enrolled at the high school. They operate on an every-other-day block system; 3/4 classes each day for about 2 hours per class. The student we had enrolled had always had trouble learning in the general 45-min. 7 classes-a-day schedule, earning low marks and a lack of enthusiasm. However, he flourished at MHS. He raised his GPA by nearly an entire point on the 4.0 scale, became engaged and actually retained a lot of what he had learned.
