    "In Middle College, you are given a Time Magazine each week. In the magazine you relate current issues with history, english, government, politics, and economics. You don't realize you are learning all of these subjects at once, until you break it down. You work on all of the assignments on your own time and review it with your teacher in your middle college meeting. You are also given the opportunity to take classes on the Santa Barbara City College Campus. This is the best attribute of the school because you are getting your high school requirements done, while you are getting college credits out of the way. By the time you graduate high-schoool, essentially you could transfer to a 4-year college instead of applying as a freshman."

    "There isn't really a "social scene" at Middle College. The student body is never on campus at the same time. You individually meet your teacher once a week for an hour. There are usually 3 other students in the building at the same time. We do have a few gatherings, but everyone is very friendly and open to making friends."

    "At Middle College, you meet one on one with your teacher. They are always devoted to you and understanding. They are willing to do what it takes to push you and give you an excellent education. This is an alternative way of learning, and you don't realize how much you've learned until you reflect on your semester. Even though you only meet your teacher once a week, they are always willing to meet with you (even if they have another student at that time) or you can reach them via email or phone. They always make sure you have a clear understanding of the information and push you to get deeper into the situations."

    "For those who don't fit into the traditional high school model and are ready to move on to an academic environment that more resembles college, Middle College is the perfect choice."

    "Santa Barbara City College was recently recognized as the top community college in the nation. It deserves that designation. With an extremely diverse offering of courses, subjects and programs, abundant tutoring services and knowledgeable teachers it is a rewarding experience for those willing to put in the work."
