I like many of the teachers and the atmosphere is friendly, everyone is very unified, however, there are many rules and regulations which I find distracting or unhelpful with a learning environment. The school has a dress code that is never enforced which makes learning difficult. They have many rules in regards to who enters the school when which can make it difficult to leave the school for school excused absences as well as things like doctors appointments. Although I do enjoy the safety, it can be a hassle. I also disagree with their parking permits. Everyone has an assigned spot which causes many issues in the parking lot with people trying to park while other people are trying to leave and chaos ensuing because everyone is trying to find their specific spot instead of parking first come first serve.
Review Midland High School
I love my school because is it a positive environment. All of the students respect each other no matter their previous backgrounds or experiences. There is a great sense of Chemic Pride every single day. Whether there is a big game or it is just a normal day, the staff and students are always supporting each other. The staff is always there before and after school for extra help and they are very understanding people. Teachers are willing to help you even if you are not in their class. The students are hardworking and are also willing to help out when they can. I have had bad days at school before and my peers and teachers have always found a way to cheer me up. My experience at Midland High has been great so far!
MHS is a good school in my opinion. I was in honors, AP, and IB courses for all four years of high school. I thought that the classes were tough but not too tough and that the teachers did a good job teaching and explaining the material. The teachers who taught higher level courses, in my opinion, are much better at their jobs than the teachers who taught lower levels. The art teachers were very biased and set in their ways and I would not recommend them. If I could change one thing in my school it would be the phone policy and to request that ALL bathroom stalls locked, soap in the dispensers, and toilet paper in ALL stalls.
