My experience at Middleton High has been amazing! The teachers are cool, the games and clubs are fun, but the best thing is the people there. I have been to a lot of different schools in my life and I have never had such good friends as I have at MHS. The sports program is awesome! I tried the swim team last year for the first time and was able to make it to the state championships the same season I started. Personally I think that our choir program could be better but I hear some of my friends who go to other schools say the same things about their choir teachers so I think its just a choir thing. Its probably a good thing that its hard because I have learned a lot of life lessons in that class. I think the orchestra program is great, I play the cello and it just feels amazing when you hear the sounds that you worked hard to make join together with other sounds to make a symphony. Overall Middleton has its ups and downs but you need them all to get the right experience.

Middleton High School is a four year High School on a very small town near Caldwell, Idaho. The school has many events that keep the school close. Many sporting events are themed such as "white out" or "pink out". These events help provide a sense of community at this small school. The teachers are very willing to do what ever it may take to see students succeed! Over the last two or so years there has been several issues that the way the school has been ran, but most if not all of these issues have been solved. I have been graduated for a year, but I have heard nothing but amazing things about this school!
Mr.Merrill is by far, the best principal that I've ever had! And it upsets me that they most likely won't be bringing him back next year to continue as Middleton High's principal. Mr.Merrill always says high in the hallways, he says hi to everyone. He tries to make you feel welcome and safe at school, which he totally does. I do not know much about the whole firing Mr.Merrill thing but I do know this. That the purpose of going to school is to better your knowledge and help the community. Mr.Merrill does exactly that. He makes kids want to go to school and has improved learning and growth rates for students by making such a welcome environment for them here at Middleton High. So tell me this, why are we getting rid of such a great and helpful person, when a staff member's duty is to do what's best for the students?
