My favorite part about Middletown was that it provided a space for me to see my friends. The resources there for journalism classes, also are really advanced and helped me gain experience with technology I could not have otherwise. The cafeteria started doing a daily burrito bar also which is really delicious, and provides a vegetarian option. Overall my experience at Middletown was alright, I just wish there was more diversity.

Middletown remains, in my opinion, the gem of Maryland schools. Students are amongst the brightest in both intellectual skills and emotional skills. Our little town revolves on the stereotypical small-town vibe of everyone knows everyone. The experiences I've had here has helped me to become a better student and person. The school could benefit from a little more diversity as most of the student body consists of little minority presence. It would be more beneficial I think to all parties if more diverse cultures were introduced into the school. I know the community of Middletown and I know they would be welcomed with open arms. Regardless of race, religion, or sexual orientation, we are all human and we are all entitled to a proper education; one that will be remembered well into the years of graduate school and transition to our permanent careers.
Middletown High is by far the best High school in Frederick County. When you are a student at this school you will come to love every single one of your classmates. Middletown offers Excellent Academics and Phenomenal Athletics. In the town of Middletown Friday nights become a little bit more specials under the stadium lights, school events are looked forward to and you find yourself making memories with people you won't forget. This school will always have a special place in my heart because of the teachers, students and parents in this community.
