Middle College High School is a mainly student ran high school. The pricipal loves it when we come up with ideas that benefit the school and even the students themselves. The principal allows up to present our idea to the school or do things that not all high schools can do. For example, the principal accepted a request that the class of 2020 presented to her. She allowed us to make performances to the rest of the school and raise money for our senior dues. The principal even helps us out by inviting some of her friends to come and enjoy the events that were performed. We raised so much money that now each person has to pay around $50 instead of the original $545. This high school is a great school for academics and sports program. For example, we get to take college classes at Christian Brothers University or even on the high school campus. We have teachers that push us to learn everyday while also having fun at the same time.

Middle College High School has been an amazing experience. Everyday that I wake up I am excited to go to my school. Considering we are a smaller school, everyone is like a family there. The bonds and relationships made there are the type you keep for life. The coursework is filled with rigor, which is amazing for top-notch students. AP and DE(Dual Enrollment) classes are offered inside of the school. DE courses are also offered at Christian Brothers University. There is truly no school that I'd rather be at than Middle College High School.
I attended Middle College High School from 2014 to 2017. Middle College gave me the opportunity to take dual enrollment classes during my senior year. With these hours I was able to be ahead by one semester once I started college. Other than the academics the school overall was pretty average. We didn't have many clubs or organizations that were interesting. The only official club that we had was Student Government Association, so, if you weren't in SGA or didn't play a sport the only thing you can benefit from Middle College is the academics. Overall the school prepared me for college and it has helped me further myself in higher education.
