Midwood High School has given me more opportunities than I could ever ask for. Their teachers are phenomenal and go above and beyond their designated curriculum. They offer support and even their free time to engage their students within and outside of class time. The school is rich in diversity and it has been an honor to be part of their student-run productions and the three major cultural festivals. It is undeniable that anyone could feel at home in this school. There are over a hundred clubs to join which are all-inclusive and have their own platforms and events. I have noticed a significant increase in school spirit and community. Midwood definitely has one of the best and most sophisticated science programs in the city and provides students with ample opportunities to explore their love for science whether it's research, robotics, or other science fields. The student council is strong and helps connect the student body and has a major impact on the school. Midwood is strong!
