My experience at wasn’t bad at all, I actually enjoyed it. While there were some ups and downs, it was a pretty regular high school. While it wasn’t a spealized high school, it felt pretty close to one. My experience felt similar but without the pressure. At the same time it isn’t hard to succeed nor is it necessarily competitive I am in the Med Science program (Senior 2019) and I felt like I was given many academic chances to succeed. While some schools might’ve had more, the school wasn’t entirely lacking. I had many choices in terms of AP classes, clubs and activities. Some of he teachers I had were some of the teachers I’ve ever met while others didn’t seem as motivated (might be common in many schools). Some practices were definitely not normal and sometimes seemed unnecessary and counterintuitive (such as late passes for 1-3 period classes). Overall my experience wasn’t bad and would recommend the High school for any student who is interested!

I like the diversity within the school building. I meet at least 5 people per semester who come from very different backgrounds. I also love the amount of extracurricular activities my school offers allowing me to explore new talents and religions that I didn’t know about before! Lastly, Midwood definitely prepares students for large colleges being that it’s a high school with over 4,000 students.
Midwood is incredibly diverse with a student body that is incomparable to other public schools!
It's a community within a school of over 4,000 students (currently) that are all connected with each other despite the school's size.
I'm a senior now, And this is the best thing I have to say about Midwood High School in my 4 years of attendance. However, it's size can at times be a hindrance.
For that reason, I think Midwood High School could increase their staff so more students can receive help, And the school oficals aren't spread thin.
I also feel that Midwood could improve its college readiness because I felt that I relied on too many outside sources for help in the college process. They don't have the time to constantly walk with us through the process, but sometimes us students needed that support.
Otherwise, Midwood is a great institution for any kid.
