    Overall Experience: There some are a lot of wealthy families in the district which leads to a sense of entitlement in some of the students. Sometimes the teachers buy into it and there is favoritism shown. In most cases it is not a problem but it can be frustrating where it does exist.

    Overall it is a very good school with high expectations and well run programs.

    Overall Experience: Middleton is a great school because there are so many opportunities and things to get involved in. I decided freshman year to manage the baseball team and I'm very glad I did. I met more people getting involved in this and I started to talk to more people instead of being shy since I was around people all the time during the season.

    Overall Experience: Personally, I have had a positive experience at my high school, mainly due to the fact that my struggles are kept at a minimum. I do not face financial, social, or intellectual difficulties, causing me to be an average high school student. Our school offers a wide spectrum of courses, and it is clear the teachers and staff wish us the very best and strive to provide as such.

    Overall Experience: I love my school. There is something for everyone here. Our arts programs are fantastic, and so are most of our sports. There are lots of clubs for everyone to feel at home in! Since we switched principals it's like our admin team has done a 180; they actually listen to our opinions now. The staff definitely seem much more at ease around him than the last principal, which reflects in the way they run their classes. I've only had wonderful teachers while at Middleton. I am only sad to see that so many of our wonderful art teachers are leaving.
