Middlesex High School Reviews

My overall experience at Middlesex High School has been positive. We are a small rural community where everyone does really know everyone. Each grade level, 9th through 12th, averages about 100 students per grade. The Middlesex school community is very involved and invested in educating the children with the limited resources that enable a rural community. There are opportunities offered in a variety of areas for those who have already decided on their chosen career fields. The school offers Advanced Placement and Duel Enrollment courses. It also partners with the Chesapeake Governors School and Bridging Communities to provide college credit courses in a variety of fields. If the student is motivated they can accomplish a great deal prior to graduation, even earn an associates degree from the neighboring community college.

The resources available at MHS are its strongest point. They do not have all AP courses available, but they have several in multiple fields. They also have a partnership with Rappahannock Community College that provides several DE courses. Students have access to Chesapeake Bay Governor's School and the Bridging Communities program, both of which provide college credit. CBGS is probably better preparation for college due to its difficult curriculum.
On the negative side however, MHS does not maintain itself very well. The hallways, gymnasium, and fields look nice, but the bathrooms and some classrooms have gone for months without any apparent cleaning, and some of these rooms are in disrepair. One bathroom went several months with a broken and empty paper towel dispenser, only to have the paper towels left in the broken shell for several more months after. The Spanish department is also severely lacking in classroom management, though most other departments excel.
If I had to choose a high school to go to for any of my family memebers entering high school it would definitely be MHS! From the staff down to the food, I’d do it all again.
