Middleton is a great place if you want it to be. Your experience with teachers, sports, and resources can be very political- coaches and teachers have favorites and not everyone is treated equally. Academics are fantastic if you have an idea what you want to do, otherwise it can be overwhelming. Great admin staff!

Middleton High School is a fairly good school. Although there are a few teachers who are not very good and either don't know the material or do not care about there students, most enjoy their jobs and actually want their students to succeed. The academics at Middleton High School are very good, but unfortunately/fortunately this creates a lot of competition for the students of Middleton High School. Outside of academics, Middleton does a very good job of providing tons of clubs and other activities that allow students to become invested in or learn about. The sports are Middleton High School can be questionable at times, though. It is very apparent the Athletic Director doesn't care about any sports besides football, basketball, and baseball and other sports are affected by this such as soccer.
Middleton high school has some of the best educators in the state and I've enjoyed being a student there for the past 4 years. Overall,I've had positive experiences with staff and have made lasting connections with my educators. I've only had one negative experience with a teacher who was not involved with the students. But regardless, educators at MHS have great knowledge on subject matters and are very in tune with students and dedicated to ensuring students are well adjusted and comfortable in the classroom. All staff has proven to be committed to making sure students can access them and always improve. I've passed all classes with flying colors because of how helpful and accessible my teachers have been. They're always willing to listen to concerns and patient while tutoring after class at Homework Club. They're always fair and compassionate with students. By far the best staff I've ever met!
