We have one of the best Ag programs and many of the kids that go to the school compete in state rodeo tournaments. Our sports programs, most notably Varsity Football, Cross Country, Girl's Soccer, and Track are outstanding. The academics are good and a good portion of the students graduating in 2020 are going to 4-year universities. Other extra-curricular activities that should be recognized are the Mock Trial team, the robotics team, the Leadership Class, and the Drama Club. Over the 4 years I have attended, these clubs have gotten many awards and the students are passionate about what they do. Besides all these achievements, student life at MHS is amazing. Students here make great relationships with their teachers and school spirit is out the roof! It is EXTREMELY rare to see bullying or fights, everyone is accepted and there are not really any stereotypes. You will meet all kinds of kind, passionate, and fun-loving people at Middletown High School! GO MUSTANGS!!!

I love the campus and the district filled it with caring teachers who only want to see you succeed.The teachers are always there to help. The food is eh but the rest of the experience is amazing. They have a wide selection of electives you can take, such as weights, band, floral, Ag mechanics, and many more.
Overall a good high school. Between the Fires and COVID-19, this school has been through a lot. Super strong sports programs. A lot of classes such as art and woodshop worry a lot about budget issues, mostly due to how small the school is.
