Middle College High School Reviews

Middle College High School was the best thing I could've done to prepare for college. My home highschool wasn't what I wanted, so I applied to Middle College and was accepted regardless of the distance away from home. While attending Middle College, I was simultaneously enrolled at LA Southwest College as a part-time student. Taking those community college courses benefited me, I am currently a 3rd year at UC Santa Barbara but am at a Senior standing. The teachers are amazing and friendly, the courses challenge students, there are various opportunities for students to be involved but sports are limited. Also, food isn't the very best but I would recommend students to bring their own food. Overall, Middle College is a great school for someone who wants to pursue a higher education!

If you’re not ready to be stressed, don’t come. This school is great for those who want to excel. Some of the staff could teach better. I’m addition, the campus is well kept for the most part. Some sports are unorganized at times. The students definitely affect my opinion on this school. It’s highschool and by this time you should be maturing, but some students fail to realize that. Education is key, and I think I made the right decision competing here. For that reason, this school is very good for the most part. I was thinking on whether to rate it as average, but then I’d be lying. Your everyday highschool, doesn’t allow student to get their AA at the same time. Therefore this is the only plus to this school.
If you want the true high school experience, I would recommend going to another school. The school is very small which means drama travels unnecessarily fast. Also, our school is broke so the senior class has to scramble to find funds. Also, when I was a freshman in 2015, the administration did not tell us how to get our AAs so we all had to band together to figure it out. The food truck is expensive and fattening so try to avoid it. Administration acts like they care about uniform but they don't so don't waste your money on it. There are very little AP classes and the clubs basically never meet. Our "homecoming" is January because we don't have a football team but it doesn't matter because the basketball team is pretty cool. In the end, if you care about academics you can come here but like me you end up mourning over what could have been. There's only Latinos and Black people with 2 white boys so the diversity is lacking but it's south central what can you expect?
