    "There are systemic failures in this school. Faculty are focused solely on metrics and not on learning. The social-emotional well being of children is dismissed consistently. Interventions are not thought through and are detrimental to student learning. Although technology is available, it isn't used effectively. Our PowerSchool emails, received weekly are only updated every few months as the teachers update their gradebooks without consistency. Students are permitted to move from high acheivement to FAILING GRADES without parents being notified. My child actually LOST skills during the academic year, again, without teachers partnering with parents to aid in my child's success. The emotional and financial costs from exposing my child to this school are unsurmountable."

    "Our children attend pre-k and kindergarten in District 73.5. We are excited that we found this school district. The diversity is amazing! Having come from an urban educational system where school budgets, school facilities, and school stability were all inadequate, I have special appreciation for the fact that our children attend a school that is well-maintained, has small class sizes, and maintains great facilities."

    "Middleton School is a top-notch place to get a great education; a true learning environment where diversity is celebrated. The teachers are fantastic. They are up-to-date on best practice in education and work hard to ensure that our children receive a quality of education in an atmosphere where academic expectations are extremely high. The Principal is a leader in all things. Her presence is felt throughout the building and she attends all evening events. Her motto of responsible, respectful and ready permeates the environment. Parents are encouraged to play an active role their child s education. Many teachers have web sites to provide a digital window into the classrooms and teachers are available at all times for conferences should concerns arise. If you are looking for a great school in a great community, you have found it."

    "Middleton has been everything I've wanted in a school, either private or public, AND MORE. I am an incredibly critical person when it comes to my children, and I have NOTHING bad to say about this school. The teachers and administration all CARE about our children. The extra curricular activities are wonderful, and the parents are all equally involved. Show me another school like that? You would have no idea that this was a public school from the quality of education and the pure caring over everyone, right down to the custodian. No other school comes close."
