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.

Overall, I had a great experience at Middletown High, I was involved in various extracurricular activities and the people I met through these activities were amazing and helpful as I began the journey into high school up and till my senior year. The teachers are very caring and will go above and beyond the standard teacher duties. The one negative aspect of the school is the disciplinary measures, while our school is well maintained and there isn’t much chaos, I think he school could benefit from a better displinary plan.
Middletown is a great school to find yourself become very developed into school activities, sports and growth in a great selection academic classes. There are many teachers and administrators to help in any situation you need. I enjoyed my time and development at Middletown High, it got me ready for college and everything was easy going and I had great help from counselors along the way.
