Teamwork is what it’s really all about at Middletown High School.  Staff members meet regularly in professional learning communities (PLCs) in order to set out and accomplish school goals. Typical meeting times are after school, during staff development days, or during released time, when substitutes cover classes. Most staff members belong to more than one PLC, and participation in some, such as those for content areas, is mandatory. The school also runs an advisement team, which provides every student with a caring adult who maintains contact with the student throughout his or her high school program.
