Middle College High School Reviews

In the three years at Middle College Highschool, I met wonderful teachers. The teachers are great but I wish there would've been AP classes. The school itself is easy and slow pace but they do provide college classes at LaGuardia Community College. Also, the school is small and if you like your teachers knowing who you are then you'll like the school. Since the school is small, there aren't enough clubs, and sports to do besides just soccer, volleyball, and a forensics club. But what I do like from my school is that the teachers care about you, care you're doing well, and help you prepare for college. Overall, my experience has been good in this small community.

A good school overall. The college now program will help a lot if you are planning to go to a CUNY college because your college credits will transfer saving you money. The biggest downside for me while I was there was the math deparment. I loved my math teachers but the school doesn’t not teach advance math and often reteaches the same thing over and over again during the 4 years. However, if you do want to take a more advanced math class you can ask your advisor to put you in a college math class. The students there are also pretty chill, there are a few cliques here and there, and the teachers are really good, by the time you’re a senior you would most likely have a good bond with one teacher or staff there. Another thing if you plan on joining clubs or etc there isn’t much.
My school is small; it has two floors and the cafeteria is shared with another school. Coming from a big middle school, I thought the change would be difficult. However, I adapted quickly and found support from my peers. My school is different from other schools because it offers a fifth year in which students can take college classes. I take them at La Guardia Community College and think it has been beneficial to me. I'm not sure whether or not I'd choose a different school because this school has helped me balance out my extracurriculars. Since I get out early, I have enough time to go to soccer practice, then to my programs (Legal Outreach's College Bound Program and the Fresh Air Fund's College Connections Program.) If I went to a different school I wouldn't be able to participate in those activities and it would be hard for me to get a high class rank.
