LEADERSHIP is a 2 star...When a student is failing, out of courtesy no one notifies you of this or any support afterwards. It seems Counselors are only worried about college information and higher classes(do not respond to emails). Some teachers will keep you informed (Edsby) while others do not respond at all. Otherwise this STEM school is good for the students which I give 4.5 stars. Love that the Parent/Teacher Conference dates/notifications have been sent out in advance.

I have wanted to pull my child out from this school since the first year, but my daughter insist that the STEM label will help her college application and she has made friends at the school. I do not know if the other high schools in the county are equally bad at assigning schedules and teacher retention, but I wish we had stayed in a charter school. I realize that there were budget cuts and some of that money has to be now spend on guards instead of counselors and teachers, but something like a schedule should be doable for all returning students.

I highly recommend avoiding this school. The administration has no clue how to run a school or control its students. In my experiences, many of the teachers do not know what they are doing and if they do, they are clueless when it comes to teaching a class (looking at two magnet teachers in particular). The only reason that the grades are held at an average mark is because the magnet students are there to hold them up. The only thing that I have gotten from this school is a terrible GPA and even if I work extremely hard there is no way that I can recover from that and the severe mental damage that I have gotten from attending this school. Do not attend Middleton High School.

I am in the Biomedical and Engineering magnets at Middleton High School and I have to say that both magnets are extraordinary. The magnet teachers often have experience in the field really know their stuff. There is a lot of project-based work involved in the magnet program, but it work that I consider fun. Magnet programs at Middleton give you experience in the field and give you an advantage in college. As of this year, Middleton is the only internationally STEM certified high school in the state of Florida. It also has 7 robotics teams (1 FRC, 3 FTC, and 3 VEX). Middleton also has many other STEM-related clubs, including TSA, FBLA, Mu Alpha Theta. Sports are pretty much open to everyone, but they aren't the school's strong point. Kids often push each other to do better in academics and also support each other. Most people seem to get along well and bring each other up, embracing the uniqueness and individuality of others. Middleton has a CNC mill, a plasma cutter, and multiple 3D printers. The curriculums for the Engineering and Biomedical magnets are created by PLTW and are very strong curriculums that are fun instead of just tedious.

My son was lost before he came to this school and now he has many good friends and has found his way. I don't know how much of that is the school and how much he just matured, but the school deserves at least some of the credit. Highly recommend 8th graders that have any interest spend 1 to 2 days shadowing at the school to see if it is right for you. The robotics program is world class, but FBLA and TSA clubs are also quickly becoming known for producing state and national champions. The best thing for my son is the acceptance of the geek culture. That is what I think is helping him grow and figure out what he wants to do with the rest of his life. Also, don't think the Game Design magnet is an easy magnet. Although not as challenging as the Engineering (offered at Middleton) and IB programs (offered at other schools), it does teach important skills. If your child is a real overachiever, consider joining 2 magnet programs and watch him or her accomplish things you never thought possible. Last week my son saved me $300 from buying a new LED TV. He used what he learned to repair my old TV (it had a bad board).
