The houses you'll see on campus belong to a faculty who teach a deep curriculum and who dedicate their lives to the development of complete, ethical teenagers. Our facilities foster our cherished sense of community. Check out the Student Center and shoot some pool before the a cappella jam, or maybe head out to our fields, where we offer 27 varsity sports. At Middlesex, you'll find a place of opportunity, challenge, and friendship; a place to discover passions, talents, and yourself; a place, as our founder so aptly put it, to find your promise.

The two things that stand out to me about MX are 1) the way students are encouraged if not forced to try new things and find new hobbies/passions, and 2) the incredible teachers. Middlesex has mandatory sports and arts for freshmen and sophomores, giving younger students great exposure to all sorts of new activities. The faculty genuinely care about every student, and over time they become friends as well as teachers, since they live in dorms, coach teams, and serve as advisors, in addition to just teaching. By senior year, most kids begin to feel like the school is just too small, but I think it's worth it, since most underclassmen NEED the close-knit community. They are working on diversity, and student culture is changing a LOT, so don't believe everything you read from a few years ago regarding lacrosse culture, etc., because MX is quickly becoming a much more progressive institution.
Review Middlesex School
It was a great experience. By going there I met so many people that I would not have met otherwise. The school really taught me how to advocate for myself. However, I had a bit of a frustrating experience at this school, as I am Black woman from a low socio-economic background at a school that was made for rich White men. And though times indeed have changed, some of the ways of the social life on campus still reflect the school at the time of creation. That isn't to say that I didn't enjoy my time there. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I would not take it back for anything.
Terrific school. Challenging yes, but incredibly caring and supportive faculty. Students are from all over and motivated but collaborative. Size is perfect: deep programs and unified community. A gem.
