Middle College High School Reviews

My experience at Middle College High School has been very rewarding. I get to attend a school with like-minded individuals. We have boasted a 100% graduation rate since inception. Students are allowed to take college courses at Christian Brothers University. We all place academics first and failure is not an option. Class sizes are small, and the teachers are vested in our success. Our principal has just been named the Principal of the Year by the state of Tennessee. I would not change one thing about my school. It is my desire that the trend continues and the school continues to produce top scholars.
Review Middle College High School
My time at Middle College High School, or MCHS, was one I am grateful for. MCHS excels at its college predatory programs are very top notch. As a result of my the Dual enrollment program I was able to accumulate 24 college credit hours my junior year alone, all of which I'll be able to keep when I attend college next year. Sadly the administration at the school isn't the most organized, this creates a plethora of confusion and displeasure in a students high school experience. As a result of the lack of proper communication between the administration and staff, the push for school culture is weak. In the end if I could go back to the summer of 8th grade year and choose another high school to attend I wouldn't, but I would pursue different options within the school to make it more manageable.
The school itself is pretty good. The teachers actually strive to help a student; however, the administration is the real problem. A lack of respect and communication from the administration is what plagues the school with problems.
