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!
Review Middleton High School
Although the school lacks in diversity, the students make up for it with their willingness to be open minded of other cultures and backgrounds. The school is in a friendly middle class area and this makes for a comfortable environment. Bullying is not tolerated and is always fixed by staff. The school has shown a great dedication to students welfare and opinions. I would love to come back and redo it all if I couldn't. It's been amazing!
Middleton is a pretty good school. I went there for 3.5 semesters (graduated early) and I enjoyed the variety of classes I was able to take. I didn't feel like I fit with most of the students, but that's okay with me. The one thing I really did not like was their accommodation with placement when I was a freshman (I came from a private school). They weren't willing to put me in the right classes because I didn't have the right tests to look at (despite the fact that I had recommendations and other assessments from my middle school).
