Open Quote I am a former student of Middle College High school. I absolutely loved the atmosphere MCHS presented to its student. Because there is only about 300 students, the students are able to get one on one time with their teachers if needed. Unlike regular high school that have 3000 students, your child will not get lost in the Crowd. I am currently a Sophomore at Cal State University Fullerton and I can honestly say I would not be here if it was not for the caring faculty and staff. I am proud to be part of the prestigious Alumni of Middle College. There is absolutely no better school in Orange County than Middle College High School! Close Quote

Open Quote My daughter was accepted into Middle College High School, and we are very excited about her opportunity. However, there are a few concerns:
1) Office staff treats parents like they are some kind of alien. They are not helpful and barely polite.
2) We attended end of year open house, and I was surprised by the level of work I saw displayed. I expected remarkable and saw average or just below.
3) The school continues to hammer the point home that they don't have any sports (obviously why 60-70% of student body are obese) and very few student activities. Could they offer students at least a glint of high school for those of us who want happy well-adjusted teenagers?... Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
