    Resources & Facilities: There is a lot of technology available like SmartBoards, but for many teachers, they are not very effective and sometimes hinder lessons. While the classrooms are pretty nice, the air conditioning or heating of some cause extreme chills or heat during certain times of year, and the problems rarely get fixed quickly.

    Overall Experience: They provided me many opportunities like cross country running, and they even have other sports, like golf. They also have a nice selection of different foreign languages. In general, the environmental climate of the school is positive.

    Food: I personally don't like the food at Middletown High School. It isn't very healthy and there really is not much variety.
