Middleton-Cross Plains Area School District Reviews

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.
Review Middleton-Cross Plains Area School District
I moved here about 3 years ago from Iowa and honestly I wasn't excited to begin with. I had my very first day of classes and I hated it (except for government and French, hey were good). Teachers really didn't connect with you as a human being or a student. They didn't care if you don't understand the material, especially in math. All math trachers cared about were finishingredients the two chapters every class and finishing homework. And comparing this to my old school, in Ankeny Iowa, this was a disaster. I wasn't learning as well as I should have, and things weren't sticking with me. But luckily senior year I got come competent teachers and I'm feeling like I understand what's going on. But other than that, we have some ok other students, buildings nice, and they have cool things to do around wisconsin.
Academically speaking, the school has any type of class you can imagine from the field of social studies to the field of computer science. The teachers are great and always seem to genuinely care about your academic success and improvement. However, the student body is not very diverse, and oftentimes minorities are treated poorly by other students.
