Middle College High School Reviews

I had many ups and downs with this school. I am a recent alumni. I started as a freshman there. My freshman year was really hard trying to adjust from a newly high school student to the insane amount of course work these teachers gave. It was to prepare us for the college courses we were taking our sophomore to senior year. I personally believe i handled the dual enrollment very well. This school is mainly focused on the academics. This means that there was not much activities for students because they wanted us to focus on our academics which is something I would change. I do thank this school for preparing me for college because it did a great job at doing that. On the other hand, i think this school made us feel like we were stuck in this bubble and didn't really have a social life. Again don't get me wrong because of this feeling, it made make connections with amazing people because we all related so much. Im sure everyone had a different experience but this was mine.

My experience at Middle College High School was a great one. the faculty and staff that are employed at that school always have the students best interest in mind and they go the extra mile to help their students. Middle College prepares their students for college as soon as they enter the school and really helps them with anything they need throughout the years and even the years after the student graduates. One thing that I would change/alter about the school is that they focus mainly on schools in California. They don’t have much knowledge on the entrance requirements for schools that are outside of California. Besides this Middle College is an excellent school and I recommend the school to anyone. My only advice is to know where you want be in life and do your own research, don’t depend on the school to give it to you.
Great school, safe environment, healthy lifestyle, great academics and great teachers that are very dedicated to their work. Such a great school. A school for overachievers and those who want to succeed in life. Phenomenal! If I could go back there I would.
