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.
It's a great school to attend for a four year experience in a public school. It has women's lacrosse which is great when comparing other schools in the area who only offer men lacrosse. It has very committed teachers, especially when knowing or hearing from other students in the surrounding towns that they're school teachers do not care a whole lot about teaching students and preparing them for college. They seem to come to treat it as a job only for an income and that's all. I'm glad I'm a student at middletown high.
