    They are improving their academics every year and the teachers are very warm and friendly. They make you have fun and learn at the same time. Some of the teachers are students of Middlesex High School them selves so they know the school and the community very well.

    Ther are limited opportunities here for those who academically excel and much of it has to do with apathy on both the parents and teachers parts. There has been some increase in the number of available AP courses within the last few years but there remains a huge dearth of competent teachers who actually prepare their students for AP tests and college work. Recent inadequate funding has also been partially responsible for the current state of the school. Leadership changes from administration down through faculty is necessary to implement any tangible improvement.

    MHS is a good school the principal mr freeman is on the ball and knows every child in the school there is very little trouble because of this the Dr. Baker also tries to attend all events the teachers know all the kids and they work with them I was going to move but I couldn't take my kids away from a small enviroment where everyone knows you to a large school where you would be lost in the shuffle middlesex high is wonderful

    Much of the woes are due to the fact that Middlesex is a small town with a proportionally small budget. As everything in life however it is what you make of it; with hard work it is possible to attend a top college and start a meaningful career.

    Being the parent of one current MHS student and one who graduated in 2003 I can honestly say I feel good about the decision to have them attend MHS. Because of the small size teachers know their students and the students know each other well. There are a lot of clubs and activities but probably not as many as a large school. Maintenance of the school appears to be pretty good. As far as the education goes a good student clearly has the opportunity to thrive and get in to an excellent college.

    I graduated from middlsex in 2002 and I enjoyed high school very much! Only in a small high school do you get the feeling of being safe teachers that really do know you and you actually have many friends in your classes. Middlesex doesnt get a good enough rap and thats only because those people didnt attened middlesex. They have many after school activities that teachers are very involved in and they dont care who you are they really try to get you on the team and get you a chance to play.

    My daughter is a senior at Middlesex High School and my son is a sophomore. I am really tired of hearing bad things about the Middlesex School system. I have gone to back to school nights and was extremely impressed with the teachers. If they see that you as a parent are interested in your child's education they do everything they can to keep you informed and to help your child. I have had teachers call me at home and at work to tell me of concerns that my son was falling behind or that my daughter was short changing herself in applying for colleges. Where else but in a small school do you get that kind of individual attention? I feel that my children have done well and are prepared for the world and for college. I could say more but I have to keep the word count to 150!

    Although I am not a parent in Middlesex I recently graduated from Middlesex High School in 2004. I believe children receive a great education through the Middlesex public school district. The work is challenging but all beneficial. As a graduate of MHS there are many things I loved about the school and that I miss now that I'm in college (Kean University). There are many different clubs sports and activities that teens can be apart of in the high school the only thing that limits them to these extra curricular activites is their spare time. I was involved in many different things in high school that I never tried before which were great experiences now that I look back. (Cheerleading for (football/basketball/wrestling) VP of my class the spring musical yearbook Varsity Singers and chorus. Being involved with these clubs introduced me to new people and kept me out of trouble!
