Middle College High School Reviews

Over the four years of attending Middle College High School, I can say that it was all worth it in the end. Although my experience at this school was not like any ordinary high school student, I definitely had the opportunity to complete college courses along with high school classes. I had the opportunity to explore classes across different departments where I was able to narrow down the options for what major to pursue in. The college courses that I completed have been transferred to the university I currently attend which has saved me time and money. Additionally, the school's atmosphere feels welcoming .The school is small which has made it easier to communicate with the teachers/professors and get to know other students across all grades. Furthermore, something I would change about this school would be adding activities that will want students to participate in. The food would be also another factor I would change. Overall, its great academically.

I loved that I am able to take both college classes and high school classes at the same time because it challenges me. This school was a big culture change because I had to mature very quickly because I was no longer in middle school. I was a high school and college student! This school is great because it truly does change you into a mature person. This school also creates a small little family with every grade level because that's just how close we all get.
Middle college high school is a very great school. This school gives you the opportunity to take two years of college classes while being in high school. When you graduate, you are also given the opportunity to get an AA degree. That’s just what this school is, full of possibility. It challenges you to do your best. I just think it’s a great place to start your high school and college experience at the same time.
