Middle College High School Reviews

Middle college has been a fairly interesting school to say the least. If you’re interested in getting the full highschool experience with all the pep rallies, events, and clubs this is not where you want to go. But if you’re like me and you don’t really care about all that then Middle College could work for you. The workload is a little extensive at times but I got through 9th-10th grade with a 3.5 gpa on only 50% effort so it’s not ridiculously difficult to succeed here. Also if you’re interested in playing sports, none of the teams are very good. Some teams have relative success but limited funding and lack of facilities makes the sports experience a bit unbearable at times.

Middle college high schools far has been an ok high school. Throughout the years I’ve been in this school there has not been a librarian nor nurse but luckily now at this school year they changed that and now have a full time librarian and nurse. Besides that, I like the idea that it’s a small school and everyone knows everyone. As well the best opportunity to attend college and high school classes at the same time. While attending middle college high school I have been attending college classes and is a good opportunity to get college credits and can graduate early from college or university, if they accept college credits. Overall I really like the opportunity we have on sharing a campus with a college.
Middle College High School is an amazing school that I'm grateful to be attending. Students at MCHS are very intelligent and determined to achieve their goals. Most of the teachers show that they care about students, which is something that you don't see often. MCHS is next to a college (Los Angeles Southwest College) so we are allowed to take college classes at LASC. I love that we are able to take college classes in high school, which I think is a good head start to prepare us for when we actually get to college. We are able to graduate with an AA/AS degree as well. The food at Middle College is okay. We even have a food truck at our school as an alternative lunch option. We have sports at MCHS which are cool. We have a police station at the campus so I feel extra safe. Overall, I feel like Middle College HS is a wonderful school and I'm excited to spend the rest of my high school years here.
