Academic Highlights

Did you know students at MHS were awarded AP Scholars and AP Scholars with Distinction? Last year, 12 MHS students received scores of 3 or higher on three or more AP Exams and were recognized as AP Scholar. Two students earned an average score of at least 3.5 on all AP exams taken, and scored 3 or higher on five or more of these exams. These two students were recognized as AP Scholar with Distinction and earned an average score of 4.25. Great Job!!!!

Did You Know?

The Blue Jay, the symbol and mascot of Middlesex High School, was the choice of its first administration, Principal Roland Lindwald and Assistant Principal Ruth Hueston. The two administrators selected the Blue Jay because of its scrappy and feisty ways.


Shout Outs

In the spring of last school year, Mr. Inciong (Mr. I, instrumental music) met with DR Strings in Emerson, NJ to learn about the small guitar string manufacturer. He visited them to find ways to collaborate and incorporate his findings into his newly overhauled Guitar Lab & Music Industry and Drum Lab & Music Tech classes. The result was a year supply of their incredible hand made strings at a heavily discounted rate to outfit our guitars and basses with! Learning about their products, manufacturing process, and a little of their business side will definitely make its way into the content of these new classes.

Overall, the meeting yielded very positive results which will lead to more collaboration with DR Strings. Please check their website out as well!

Donors Choose....Ms. Gomez

From Ms. Gomez, "I created a Donors Choose project after I learned about it in one of my grad school classes. It is an organization where teachers can create projects they want to achieve in their classroom. Donors Choose ensures that the materials requested are school related and then they allow teachers to post on social media. I was able to create this project and have it funded in an hour and a half! The great thing about Donors Choose is that they match donations up to $50 for the first week the project is active. Now my students have a place to work collaboratively, a place to conference with me about their writing, flexible seating, and writing workshop books to guide them."
