    This school is very chaotic! The teachers are rude and pay no attention to the students. My child is suppose to be seeing a speach therapist and has not seen one but when she was evaluated. The rules they have for children are way to extreme my child got introuble for saying "booty" personally I prefer booty to what most children would say!

    The teachers and staff at MPFA are truly the greatest. They love the kids and are great at what they do! The teachers wrote grants for the computer lab library for the kids and projector and smart board for the school. I am thrilled with the progress my students have made at MPFA and wish they would consider going through 12th grade so I didn't have to think about where to put them after 8th grade. Middletown Prep made effective this year- and seem to do better than the city schools every year! GO MPFA!!

    Excellent school compared to Middletown's public school there is a huge difference. We are extremely happy with the way Middletown Prep's teachers and staff have been with our children.

    My son is a Kindergartener at Middletown Prep. He is my oldest so this is my first experience. I chose to send him here because of the extended school day and the fitness aspect. I am somewhat dissapointed in some of the decisions made here. My son has what I suspect is ADHD. He took a while to adjust to the schedule but was really starting to mature and adjust when he was informed the day before Thanksgiving break that his teacher was leaving for another job. I really feel this should not have been allowed. I also feel that the school need to look into there discipline policies. Instead of punishing a child that basically has too much energy and does not require rest time they should find something productive for them to do. I feel that taking away recess from a child that is hyperactive is totally counterproductive.

    my son has learned more in the 2 years there than i ever thought a child could learn. And compared to kids in public school this is defitely the way to go.

    This school has a great K program for kindergartners! The children learn alot and are more than ready for first grade! The teacher/child ratio is great and offers alot more room for individual attention per child.

    My child is in kindergarten and seems to be doing well. He seems to be further ahead then some of the paperwork that is coming home which concerns me. I am happy with the teachers and staff of the school but feel they are not as 'together' as the public school is. There is a lot of parental involvement due to the volunteer requirements. I love the all day class for K. I think that I prefer the public school since it has music art and library time which MPFA does not offer. The children are graded daily by a number which I think is very taxing for both me and my child.

    My child spent a year at the Middletown Fitness and Prep Academy and though we were pleased with their effort we eventually decided our child could receive a better education at a larger more experienced school.

    My husband and I chose to enroll our son at Midd.Prep the first year it opened. This will now be his fourth year and the school just keeps getting better every year. So many updates and improvements. The Principal teachers and staff are the best. They are very qualified and caring. My son has always brought home Art projects that he made in his classroom and we always enjoy the preformances the children put on throughout the year for the parents. This involves singing acting Martial Arts Demonstrations and not to forget the wonderful Holiday Program each December. I am proud to tell others my son attends Midd. Prep. We now know we made the right decision which at the time four years ago was a very difficult one. After all who does not want the very best for thier child?

    My daughter has gone here for two years with this being the last year she will attend. I find the lack of arts and computers in the curriculum to be very negative. Art invites free though and creativity in children. To me this is very important. Also I feel children should be rewarded for academic excellence. At Midd. Prep trophies are given for attending the most skating parties and popsicles are given for Academic Excellence. This is completely backwards. Additionally the facility is overcrowded and the lunchroom is inadequate for the number of children attending.

    my daughter started the school the first year it was opened. this was a big step for us but we wanted the best for our children. the school had a bumpy start but the sports programs-tennis martial arts and soccer proved to be beneficial. my son now attends and each year it gets better. we could use more art and music but the fitness is a plus. academics are great. both of my kids scored over their levels in the proficiency tests and the teachers deserve all of the praise. parent involvement is required[20 hrs.]and more than a third of families have met this. I hope to keep my kids in this school until 8th grade.
