Middletown School District Reviews

I like that the Middletown school district is very diverse and has many teachers who do a good job at preparing students for higher levels of education. Although there is diversity and good teachers, i feel that the students don’t put enough effort into their academics and don’t seem to care about their futures. This is partly the fault of the schools, who fail to actually discipline students who misbehave and constantly skip classes. Teachers need to do something to stop this behavior, instead of constantly reminding these students to do the right thing, which they never listen to.

I love the teachers that I have and the classes I get to take. The teachers out here and the classes are very diverse and teach a large variety of different subjects and caring teachers that will work one on one with each student to help us advance ourselves and understand the material. However, if I had to change something it would be the poor food and after-school activities. Currently, most activities are sports or equality related if there could be more technology-based activities for students so that the students can enter a college or apply for a job of their choice with experience already within that field.
As a student, at Middletown High School after four years of attending I'd rate MHS as poor because it is a very corrupt school system. From walking in the hallways to seeing the administration, just being at MHS for a day even as a visitor you'd be able to tell how corrupt the school system is.
