Middletown High School has been far more than a school for me in the past four years. It has been a second home, an adventure, and a place I have come to love. Middletown High School is a welcoming place that offers not only amazing opportunities through its myriad of classes but also through it wide selection of clubs and athletic teams. Beyond that, the fellow students I had the pleasure of attending this wonderful school were not only accepting but welcoming and always pushing each other to be our best. I can confidently say because of MHS that I am ready for college and I have no concerns about succeeding in school. I wish every teen could experience the intense pride and welcoming environment MHS has provided for me! While I am looking forward to graduation and the next exciting chapter that college will be in my life, I will always hold onto my Blue Dragon roots.

I like that all students have the option of choosing their classes after freshmen year, and the amount of choices they get when deciding their classes. MHS offers 11 AP classes and classes of almost every subject. MHS also has a very good music department and has very successful athletic coaches and teams. Students also have the opportunity to go to the guidance department or the student resource area to plan for college and write college essays, which can be really beneficial for the future. With that being said, the only things that I would change are the sports facilities and the security. The men’s locker rooms are in bad condition, the swimming pool area is very small, and the football field doesn’t have enough stands considering that football is the schools biggest sport. The school security does not do a good job at preventing fights from happening and stopping students from skipping class.
Through the four years I have attended Middletown High School, I have never had any problems with teachers, classes, or administration. However, when an incident or occurrence does come up, the staff is quick to come to fixing it. I have met so many great people and made so many wonderful relationships with not only my fellow classmates, but the teachers as well. I feel extremely safe and cared about in Middletown High School. I wouldn't trade my experience in this school for anything.
