Middle college high school is a very interesting and excellent high school, both campus wise and academic wise. Middle college is mainly for college readiness as each student is required to take college classes across the street at Valley college. When you attend middle college, you have the chance of graduation with at least 60 transferable credits, an Associates degree, and I.g.e.t.c, (Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum), which could help you with starting college as a junior, meaning you have the chance of graduating 2 years earlier than the average college attending student.
This school is the best one I've attended so far. The environment all around is very friendly and we all seem to get along like a family. We had to be interviewed by school staff to see if we qualified to enter MCHS and although at first I didn't want to attend, I'm glad I did because it has allowed me to be independent and treated like an adult, not babied around like in regular high schools. Students at MCHS have the privilege to attend San Bernardino Valley College as well. I, like the other students, have developed a good time management to succeed in both high school and college. MCHS is unique because although it is very small (about 300 students or less) we still manage to be in the top 10 high schools in California. We also won a Get Schooled contest last school year in May 2016 and had a celebrity be principle for the day! The teachers are very involved in our progress as well. They stay until late hours of the day to help students out with any homework problems or concerns they might have from a class at MCHS or at SBVC. The staff as well is very heartwarming as well when it comes to our health both mentally and physically. They allow us to have interesting school days. For example, we have a Read-A-Thon once a year when we spend all day reading, or our Field Day at the end of the month to help let us ease off our minds after a tough year. If I could choose this school again, I would over and over again.
