I have spent the last 4 years at Middle Creek and they have been amazing. A majority of the teachers are incredible and will do anything in their power to help you succeed. The school environment is very friendly and welcoming. The sports teams are off and on but it's always a treat to go out to any of the games. Latin, AP Calculus, AP Physics, AP Research, and AP Seminar are musts for students as these are the best classes in my opinion, and will all set you up for success with the best teachers. The bathrooms can be a little gross and there are some staff members that arent good, but overall this has been an amazing high school experience for me.
I transitioned from a small charter school to Middle Creek as a freshman during Covid-19. The change felt rather boring as I laid in bed to attend my online classes, while the thought of starting high school with no friends lingered in my mind. The majority of my middle school friends went to a different high school on the other side of town, leaving me to venture alone. I officially entered high school for the first time as a sophomore, extremely nervous but equally excited to be there. That first day would begin my participation in the Capstone program. I walked into my AP Seminar class and was immediately invited to sit with some girls. Of course, Seminar's workload was difficult but I was able to build healthy friendships with incredible, kind and determined individuals. Capstone would carry me into my favorite class in all of high school, AP Research. Where I mastered a research project inspired by my own interests and continued to grow meaningful relationships with my peers!
When I first started high school, it was the middle of covid. The teachers went out of their way to get to know each and every one of us and I admire that. It helped me get through that period of isolation. Having a relationship with my teachers would help me learn the material easier, and if I needed help, they would be there. Not only were the teachers great, but so were the peers in my classes. Whenever someone was struggling, they would stop what they were doing to make sure they understood and wouldn't fall behind. We all stood together which in the long run, helped us achieve our academic goals and be successful. One thing I would love to see change is the normalization of asking questions. Some students think that if they ask a question, they seem dumb, but chances are the teacher just didn't explain it well and everyone else has the same question. Overall, my experience at Middle Creek was one I will never forget and I am forever grateful.
Middle Creek High School has served as the grounds for some of the most interesting (and at times dull) times of my life. As with most places, there are highs and lows to it, though there were most definitely notable good times I've experienced here. From the roaring fans in the stadium where our varsity football team scored countless touchdowns, the teachers that would make us laugh as they taught us the world from different perspectives, or even the monotonous times where nothing was happening, the friends I made there made anything worthwhile. So how is Middle Creek in a nutshell? Well, I'd say from an analytical view, it's above average. Great college opportunities, a spectacular teacher here and there, but as a student who experiences the magic of the world as I continue to grow up, I would say it is incredible.
The school started at a very early time, which made it difficult to focus in the first few periods. Some students would have to get up at 4 a.m. so they could be up and ready to make the bus, to then get to school by 7:20. Many students were lacking sleep and ended up missing content because they fell asleep in class.
A majority of the staff was very supportive of their students. Diversity and inclusion was heavily advocated for by staff and faculty. There were still many students who would vape in the bathrooms or found it easy to skip class. There were a vast number of fire drills due to these kids setting off or pulling the fire alarm which interrupted other student's learning. Additionally, staff and faculty did not actively try to prevent these fire drills from occurring and only did something after the fact.
Middle creek high school I would call a huge learning curve for me. There were much greater responsibilities that came with going to middle creek high school for me, this was because of me being so included within the school. I used ti be in clubs, I played baseball for the school, I worked a part time job on top of all this plus I worked hard enough in my schooling as well to receive a 3.5 gpa. I couldn’t have done any of this and kept my life straight without the staff directory, this staff is the most warming and comforting and helpful staff I’ve seen. I haven’t had a single one of my teacher tell me they will not stay late after school to help me study, never had a teacher tell me no to wanting to talk or even just getting help with something else including my college essay. Middle creek also brought me to know my friend group to this day, so all I have to say is that middle creek is a place where kids learn and grow to be successful in life.
I had fun at middle creek but there were definitely some teachers who didn’t enjoy their job and took it out on the students. They favored students and proceeded to question others capabilities in the classroom. I would like those teachers to be dealt with.
I had a great time at Middle Creek within the arts department. I met so many amazing people that I could instantly connect with. However, the administration is horrible, and does not see the students as actual human beings. They are there purely for a power trip, and have caused so much turnover with educators, and other school staff.
I transferred to Middle Creek the summer after my freshman year. I was nervous about the school because it seemed stuck up and way too big for someone who used to attend a single-floor school. While I had my doubts, this school is nothing short of amazing. I don't consider my past schools my family or any help to where I got today but I most definitely consider Middle Creek my high school and family as they have taken me in with open arms and helped me succeed greatly to the point where I got accepted to my dream college. They celebrate everyone's victories and, most, of the teachers, are nothing short of amazing. Paired with a wide variety of classes, this school is great and rich in academic, sports, and social opportunities. Roll Stangs!
I liked how there is a lot of technology related courses in this school but there still needs a lot of improving on helping the students especially BIPOC students. Took of two stars because of how I was treated and because of the office front desk who claims you don't pay things when you actually do.
I liked the teachers and the environment. I loved the opportunities that one could be invoked in and make new friends.
It's a good school. The students and teachers are pretty cool for the most part. I'd say it's above average for a public school.
The education is quality. The teachers are knowledgeable and supportive. The facility could be updated and administrative staff/counselors are unhelpful and aloof.
Fundamentally, I think the school does a very good job at what it's supposed to do. In my opinion, the learning culture at middle creek is above average, and I think the teachers strive to go out of their way to support students and move them through the grade levels. Middle Creek is warm on the inside, with the exception of a few bad apples. The administration does a relatively good job handling altercations, except for when it comes to dress code. Administration here at Middle Creek tends to be pretty lenient with dress code, except when it comes to women. Women are dress coded like crazy, seriously multiple people every day. They aren't a distraction!!!!!! Other than this, the school has some minor problems structurally speaking. It could definitely use some upgrades in the bathrooms and seating arrangements in classrooms.
We enjoyed our 4 years here! I have 2 daughters that attended this high school and they both enjoyed their time here.
I love being a student at Middle Creek High School. All my teachers and the other staff I have interacted with have been very kind, genuine, and supportive. I have had the opportunity to become involved with the school and our community through joining multiple clubs and being on the varsity cheerleading team. Through this, I have grown a strong attachment to my school and have met some incredible friends. I enjoy learning at my school and feel as though my opinions and ideas as a student are heard and accounted for.
