    "There are lots of opportunities for the Advanced Placement students, and, there are a lot of resources for students who are self motivated and have the self initiative to study. However, the fact that students start every other day at 9:20 makes no sense. It is a waste of time, most students sleep in or go to the local hang outs (Starbucks), or go to other people's homes when parents are not around. There are some very good teachers because people want to be in a good district, but there is an very high turnover rate in both teachers and administration. All students are allowed to go to lunch outside of the high school including freshmen, something most high schools do not do. This school is best for the student who is self-disciplined and is focused on studying, music or sports. There are a lot of clubs and opportunities for students who want to be involved. But if your child is not, then put him in this school with caution and try to be aware as much as you can of who they are hanging out with. Lots of kids with money to burn, so if you are middle class, get ready for your kids wanting to fit in and asking you for money you don't have."

    "To respond to the out of date Middleton High school may have a few problems and the administration might be one of them however I would say to those who say it isn't culturally diverse you are quite wrong. We not only have staff and administration of all different ethnicities (literally all the way around the world), but we also have a very strong LGBT group so you really don't get more diverse. The ratio of white to African- Americans may not be the best but there are definitely plenty of "diverse people". what ever that means anymore. We as students are not racist. It's been like 20 years since that was over so we need to move on. It shouldn't matter if your white kid has no other white kids to hang out with or vise versa. They are all the same. As for the administration issue. Dr Hermann which, yes does seem to be a problem, has decided to move to California where she plans on making a lot more to do the same job. We will be finding out who the new principle is in just a few weeks. You will find that there is also an amazing sports and arts program at the school as well. There are around 4 to 5 plays and musicals every year in the infamous PAC where hundreds may come to enjoy."

    "I was a student at Middleton High School and have siblings that also attended. I could not have asked for more passionate and supportive teachers or a better academic program. I took mostly honors classes and was very well prepared for college. Also, there is a lot of school spirit and I had fun in my four years there. One of my siblings was in their special needs program. From my experience, parent involvement and communication with special education teachers is important to make sure everyone is seeing eye-to-eye. However, it is one of the best programs available and Wisconsin is known to provide exceptional support to special needs families. Overall, Middleton is a great high school and getting an education there is a fantastic opportunity."

    "I was totally disappointed in MHS. The principal doesn't listen to parents or students and staff are afraid of her. Block scheduling was a disaster and the new group math program is a mess. There were some good teachers but if your child had a bad teacher you were just out of luck. There is no accountability of the teachers or the administration. They harass students for breaking minor rules and threaten seniors the entire year that if they don't follow the rules they will not walk. There is no reinforcement of positive behavior. Both my kids hated this school. The music and arts programs were a solid 5 stars and helped my kids survive, so there were some real strengths as well."

    "The school, teacher, and environment is nice. However, the principal, Dr. Hermann, is an autocratic. She disregards all parents' and students' feedback and has changed the daily school schedule three times in four years without the approval of any of the parents or students. The staff are afraid to speak out and the principal impolitely brushes off parents and their concerns. I think the school is great but it needs a new, charismatic, accessible principal. I did make my concerns about the scheduling changes apparent to her and her administration but I was unduly ignored."
