    The Middlesex County Academy for Allied Health an Biomedical Sciences achieved the US News and World Report status as a Gold Medal Schools with only two graduating classes. The Academy has been ranked in the top ten schools in competition with over 140 schools competing in Biology. 98% of the students have advance proficient on the HSPA state examination. Several students have been accepted into 7 year programs leading directly to medical school. There is 100% college placement including "full rides". Bottom line is the Academy is a nationally recognized school with even more potential. ps Rutgers is an internationally respected university.

    Everyone goes to Rutgers. No AP classes. Teachers are prone to favoritism. Others are downright awful(like Frank).

    The school is even worse than when it was created. The most difficult part of the school is the faculty. There are countless teachers who have rather unorthodox teaching methods that believe their opinions are the only ones that exist. Additionally many teachers are prone to favoritism. This leaves a student like myself at a great disadvantage. I work hard but unfortunately I am not recognized because I am not a favorite.

    As a senior at Woodbridge Academy I have watched this school transform from a small allied health program integrated in a vocational school to a dynamic high school that prepares its students well for college and beyond. The faculty has been changing; several new teachers and a new principal have been added. Most of our teachers are well-qualified in and passionate about the subjects they teach and care about helping us learn. It is true that some have questionable teaching styles that don't sit well with all of us but not all the teachers are like that. The new principal is great and very popular with students and teachers. This school isn't perfect - most clubs are not able to meet after school so there is not a huge variety of extracurriculars that we can choose from. The academic workload can also be intense sometimes but the block scheduling our school uses makes it easier for us to manage our time. Overall however I am satisfied with my high school experience so far and like this school.

    Awesome school going here teachers are great. Principal is friendly too. I like the medical intervention.

    Now that the principal is gone there is no way to justify going to this school. The 2 years i spent here are ones ill spent. The reason for this is the teachers. 3 have already been fired and even more should be since they aren't qualified for their positions. I've wasted thousands of dollars on tutors in math that i just can't take it now. Hopefully my old district can actually enlighten me rather than this school

    People may think this school is great but it honestly isn't. Terrible teachers force students to seek tutors rather than actually learning the material from their instructors. Instructors are blatantly sexist and choose favorites. Also there are only two AP classes offered here. One of them is taught by an instructor who is completely sexist and honestly teaches a curriculum that ineffective. Just because there are a few extra college credits from the shop classes isn't enough for one to go to this school

    The Middlesex Academy of Allied Health and Biomedical School is perfect for students who are interested in entering the medical/science field. My daughter in currently in 11th grade and comes home everyday and tells us what she learns about. Her medical knowledge has grown immensely and even in other areas math english physical education and history. SAT and HSPA preparation is also incorporated majorly. The staff is very cooperate and attends to the students needs immediately. I care about my child's future and so do they. My daughter is also on the sports teams at school and involved in several clubs. My child comes home happy so I am happy. Middlesex Academy for Allied Health and Biomedical Sciences is a perfect all-round school.

    My daughter is in her third year at the Academy and I have seen her grow both emotionally and academically in ways that our public high school would have never allowed. Please keep in mind that the Academy portion of this school is only into its fourth year and thus the kinks are still being worked out. The administration staff and guidance office are almost unilaterally above excellence and when necessary course curriculum and teaching styles are appropriately tweaked without hesitation. Not only does this school offer an advanced curriculum that will give students a leg up on college it is there to offer any support and assistance needed by students. In addition administration and staff is easily accessible to parents and parent involvement and LISTENS to concerns that are brought to their attention. A great supportive academic involvement that will guarantee your child a cutting-edge education in a small caring environment. If your child is looking for an alternative to the teach-to-the-test atmosphere of your current high school and is looking for a challenge Woodbridge Academy is the school for them!

    As a current student of this school I have to say that the educational program is great and beneficial because of the health technology course. However a few teachers in charge of required academic classes have failed to meet my expectations. I must admit that the rest of the instructors are fantastic and has so far provided me much more than a good education. Regarding the environment and student crowd the academy is doing well with getting rid of the students who do not appreciate the opportunity given to them. I must mention that this school is only for students who are certain of their future and know what career they desire. This is not for students who are forced to become doctors because their mommy and daddy wants them to. This is for students who are sure they want to go into the medical fields to help individuals in need.

    This school is an Average eventhough it has been changed to the Allied Health and Biomedical Sciences. Only if they can raise their study standard. For a Academy the teachers can be much more knowledgable.

    Poorly maintained school with terrible discipline and poor quality of instruction. The principal is clueless and teachers are uninspired. I had to pull out my son after a disastrous year.
