Middlesboro High School is a good, great small school high school experience. It’s like your home away from home with your family away from family. Everyone knows each other and works hard to get what they need to get done in the classroom. Sports team is one main struggle unfortunately. Because there is no winning or good attitude after a loss, the school will seem slightly dull. But nevertheless the school always will surprise you in some way of making you happy. We have plenty of things to do and be involved with. Overall Middlesboro High School is an amazing experience!!!

Our mos popular club is probably key club. They do a lot of cool things. My favorite things they do are opperation Christmas child shoe boxes and ROHO shopping. Opperation Christmas child shoeboxes: you pack a show box full of stuff for a specific gender and age group and send it across seas to a child that does not have anything. They usually include: soap, toothbrush and tooth paste, and a wash cloth. A bowl of some sorts, a hat and a pair of gloves, and a flash light. if you have a younger age groups you add a coloring book and crayons. If you have one of the older age groups you add a notepad and a couple of pencil. After all that's in you just stuff it the top with other things like toys. ROHO shopping is when each member if the key club is pair with a child from our area that don't get a lot for Christmas, and they buy them what ever they want!
I loved being at Middlesboro High School. I was there for three out of four years of high school. It's a small school, so you get a one on one feel with your teachers, which is great when it comes to learning the material and completing assignments. ACT prep was one of the main focuses my junior and senior year, which helped me increase my score by 3 points.
