Middle College High School Reviews

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.

I never thought I was going to like this school when I started going here, but I fell in love with it. The opportunities that they offer their students are rarely found elsewhere such as their dual enrollment program with CBU where you go across the street and take actual college classes. So far I have taken Chemistry and both Comps. This semester I am taking Lit. I will be very ahead with just these credits.
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.
