Middle Creek High School for me was an experience of mixed feelings. While I did make some good friends I met a lot of the same type of person. The school its self lacked diversity in students and faculty along with the programs needed to improve the issue. Every school is going to have teachers that may not be very qualified for the subject their teaching and Middle Creek is not an exception. Middle Creek though, has some brilliant and devoted teachers, that have put their hearts and lives into teaching and making school better for the students. Student life and school pride was also a highlight in my high school experience. Middle Creek has countless students and parent putting their time into creating a Creek Culture. Whether it is all A' celebrations, or the big Fuquay v. Middle Creek Football game, there were many opportunities for students to get involved in Creek life .
Middle Creek High School has a lot of very good things about it, and I believe I attended the best school in Wake County. Middle Creek was very focused around not only sports, but especially the academics. The staff who helped the students choose classes were always pushing the students to challenge themselves. I was part of the girls soccer team at Middle Creek, and Middle Creek made sure to advertise not only our finalist football team, but also other teams including soccer, lacrosse, baseball, and many others. Middle Creek is a great school with a lot of opportunities to get involved with the school and with the community.
