Middleton high school has some of the best educators in the state and I've enjoyed being a student there for the past 4 years. Overall,I've had positive experiences with staff and have made lasting connections with my educators. I've only had one negative experience with a teacher who was not involved with the students. But regardless, educators at MHS have great knowledge on subject matters and are very in tune with students and dedicated to ensuring students are well adjusted and comfortable in the classroom. All staff has proven to be committed to making sure students can access them and always improve. I've passed all classes with flying colors because of how helpful and accessible my teachers have been. They're always willing to listen to concerns and patient while tutoring after class at Homework Club. They're always fair and compassionate with students. By far the best staff I've ever met!

Although the school lacks in diversity, the students make up for it with their willingness to be open minded of other cultures and backgrounds. The school is in a friendly middle class area and this makes for a comfortable environment. Bullying is not tolerated and is always fixed by staff. The school has shown a great dedication to students welfare and opinions. I would love to come back and redo it all if I couldn't. It's been amazing!

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.
