    Student Culture & Diversity: There was a large support system for a diverse population although there was not a very diverse group of students attending. Most students were economically advantaged.

    Sports & Fitness: In high school there were many sports and athletic opportunities. There was a weight lifting room that students had access to along with two full size gyms. There was also a small gym that was set up with a ropes course which was a class I was able to take, and very much enjoyed. Most of the teams performed very well and there was definitely fan support from students along with alumni and parents.

    Educational Outcomes: I am currently attending classes in Madison however I do not think that my high school prepared me in the right way. During me last two years of high school I was not set on a major so it was difficult for me to chose a college to go to. I was able to talk to a guidance counselor but I do not think that helped push me in a certain direction. However, I do believe that Middleton high taught me how to have a positive work ethic and to be responsible in that sense.
