    Teachers: I've had the best instruction in my school career with the teachers from Middletown High School. I think that Appoqunimink School District does a great job in being selective who they put into the classrooms.

    Overall Experience: I really struggled my freshmen, academically and socially, it was a rough transition for me. Ninth grade, I also joined the swim and the science olympiad team. Joining the two team I learned a lot of social skills. Going into tenth grade, I realized all my mistakes, and I fixed them. The year was smooth sailing for me. My grades were set and I was making a lot of friends. My junior year, I became the captain of the swim team. This made me really close with my teammates.This is what makes my high school unique, the friends I am surrounded with.
