An Intel and Scholastic School of Distinction, MIDDLETOWN HIGH is located in the scenic Middletown Valley just outside Frederick, Maryland.
MHS is dedicated to "a tradition of excellence -- knowledge, creativity, strength, leadership." All students are encouraged to take the most challenging courses possible and to stretch their abilities in all areas of coursework. In this context the faculty fosters students' critical thinking skills, problem solving and deep understanding. Emphasis is also placed on providing a healthy and inviting school climate in which all members of the school community understand and practice values guided by respect for others and personal responsibility through the countywide Character Counts! program.
Middletown High implemented the county’s first Freshman Academy to maximize student achievement during the transition from middle to high school. APEX, the Advanced Placement Scholars Program, was established in the 2003-04 school year.
A myriad of opportunities in the areas of sports, visual and performing arts, academic societies, agriculture and club organizations is available to students. While some activities have membership criteria, all are nondiscriminatory, provide projects that relate to classroom instruction, promote physical and social development, and benefit the participants, school and community.
Middletown High welcomes visitors. Please call to schedule a visit to learn more about our school.
