Middletown High School Reviews

My experience at Middletown was a good one. It has excellent academic diversity (ranging from low-level classes to AP) and some truly wonderful teachers, although there are of course those that don't even come close. Middletown is a very football focused school, due to having a fantastic football team, but it also makes sure that all of the other varied teams have decent fields, equipment, and uniforms. I joined plenty of afterschool activities over my 4 years and enjoyed each and every one (cheer, tennis, spring musical, chorus, National Honor Society, and softball). Middletown also offers the very unique opportunity of a school-based health center, where students receive free physical check ups and can visit the school therapist. Overall Middletown has a faculty and community that cares very much about its student, and it shows in every aspect of the school.
Review Middletown High School
This school offers a variety of not only extracurricular activities but a variety of career pathways as well. Though they tend to be well organize, their focus is often misconstrued and they prioritize the wrong circumstances. Students are often treated as if they are half-decent humans, and are belittled in front of their peers, and or consistently have their rights violated. The school needs some serious reconstruction on the topic of respect for one another, whilst including the young adults.
Being in a family that supports Middletown is amazing. Learning from my sister about her Middletown experiences makes me excited to go and experience it myself. The students there are welcoming from the start. The classes there are abundant so there is no worry for students over not knowing what they want to pursue. Animal science is my favorite due to the hands on learning that allows the students to first hand experience the life of a vet or farmer. In all, Middletown is the perfect high school for anyone whether they are lost in what they want in the future to if they have a goal for their career.
