The Bible Club is one of the most active and largest clubs at Middle Township High School. This non-denominational groups main goal is to encourage the students to commit to living a Christian life at the high school. Every Wednesday morning, the club meets in the gym for a short devotional Bible study. Once a month the club also meets in the evening during which time a speaker will share how God has changed their life and encourage the students to let Him changer theirs also. All students are welcome to attend any of these meetings.
One of the activities that the club participates in every year is Matt’s stocking Christmas charity. The gifts that the students bring in are distributed to need children in the area. The students have also helped by bringing in food and blankets for the homeless and sorting food at a food center. They have donated money raised to local, as well as international charities. The club also participates in “See you at the Pole” and Fellowship of Christian Athlete events.
An ensemble at MTHS comprised of its very best singers. The ensemble presents chamber music. The repertoire consists of vocal jazz, early music and 20th century choral works with intricate harmonies and voicing. Performances are largely a cappella.
Dance Step Team
The Middle Township Dance Step Team offers an opportunity for members to learn a variety of dance and step routines. We offer instruction techniques in the areas of Hip Hop, Jazz, Tap, Modern, Lyrical and Worship dancing. In addition, we also teach rhythm and step movements. The team meets Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 5 – 7 pm at the Middle School. We travel and perform at area high schools with United Young Generation during Black History Month as well as perform as special guests at the Friday Night Live Talent Show in January. Our main event of the year is producing and performing a dance recital for family and friends at the Middle Township Performing Arts Center in April. Everyone is welcome to participate. There are no auditions or try-outs. We encourage you to come out and be part of the fun.
The International Thespian Society is an honorary organization to support high school theatre programs and give theatre students a place to connect with each other and practice their craft. Middle Township High School has a long tradition of theatre excellence. Each year the Thespians sponsor the production of a fall play, a musical, entries into the state Thespian Festival, and multiple co-curricular theatrical performances. Students create all aspects of a production including sound, lights, acting, scenic artistry, business management, set construction and student direction. ITS is also an organization devoted to charity work. Every year ITS is involved with many charities and fundraising opportunities including TOTS-Eat and Broadway Cares. The NJ Thespian Festival is one of our key events every year. We take an overnight trip to this theatre festival where students can compete, earn scholarships, and take part in theatre education workshops.
At Middle Township we pride ourselves on being able to bring two full stage productions, the fall play being one of them. Produced in the fall each year students take on every aspect of the production from lighting to acting to stage managing. This is a professional production of very high caliber. Students use this opportunity to perfect their acting skills. Students are asked to devote themselves to the production with rehearsals being three days a week and usually starting around 5pm. Student who play a fall sport are welcome to join the fall play as well. Auditions are held in September.
The Italian-American Club is a club open to people from all walks of life to learn about and experience Italian-American culture. In our club we learn how to play traditional games such as bocce, learn how to prepare traditional Italian foods and expose our students to Italian music and film. We also take trips to museums to study Italian art, Ellis Island to learn about the contributions of Italian-Americans and we travel to Italy to gain life changing, first hand experiences. Come out and see what we are all about!

The contests, consisting of 6 problems from various math topics, are given throughout the year during MODS 1-2 in the cafeteria. At the end of the year, individual schools are recognized for their achievement within their county and the highest scoring students are recognized in the school at the Academic Awards ceremony. The MTHS Math Team has been awarded a Regional Championship during the past 2 years.

Middletones is MTHS's premiere vocal ensemble. Specializing in a cappella works, the Middletones are an audition only ensemble with between 6 and 12 members. The group is known for its costumed carolers at the holidays, as well as their professionalism and outstanding musicianship. Auditions are held at the start of each school year to replace graduating members and add to the group's overall sound.
The purpose of the team is to stimulate and encourage a deeper understanding and appreciation of the American legal system. This purpose is accomplished by giving students the opportunity to participate actively in the learning process. This activity helps students to improve proficiency in speaking, listening, reading and reasoning skills, and it promotes effective communication and cooperation between schools and the legal community. Mock Trial brings law to life for students through active participation in a courtroom setting. Students prepare and act out a case competitively in their county first and then proceed to regional competition, if they win the county championship. The season begins in late October and county competition ends in late January.
The musical is a highly anticipated annual event at MTHS. Auditions are held in early November and rehearsals begin shortly thereafter. The musical is held in late February or early March. Students who participate in the musical can expect to rehearse music, staging, and choreography throughout the winter months, culminating in a first class stage performance with elaborate scenic design, costumes, and a full pit orchestra. Middle Township’s musical has developed a reputation for being one of the finest in the area and its students have been awarded Broadway performance opportunities, as well as college scholarships to study musical theatre. Each year, nearly 60 students participate in this program and call it one of their greatest high school experiences.
National Honor Society

The staff of The Prowler meets all year to produce four 8-page editions of the school newspaper. Students are responsible for the entire publication of the paper: securing advertisers, selecting topics for articles, writing and revising articles, taking and editing photographs, and creating attractive layouts. We extensively utilize technology in the creation of the publication. Because Journalistic Technology is both a course and an activity, students in the course do the majority of the work for the school newspaper, but other students interested in contributing to The Prowler are certainly encouraged to see Ms. Willis.

A student government based group that serves as a liason to the principal and administration. Student Council officers represent the whole student body and take strategies, ideas, complaints and concerns to the administration. Not only does Student Council represent the student body, they also lead the school in several events and programs throughout the school year. Student Council sponsors and promotes all homecoming activities including our annual dance, pep rally, and homecoming parade. In addition, Student Council sets up and runs Freshman Orientation. We offer a brief explanation of who we are, provide tours for the students and parents, and provide refreshments for the evening.
Finally, Student Council is a service organization. We annually donate $1,000 (or more) to the Student Councils’s state charity. In many of those years, including last year, we donated $3,000. Our other annual event is the American Red Cross Blood Drive–where we continue to increase the number of pints we collect and lives we save! As you can see, if there is a need in the school or the community, Student Council will be there, with funds and manpower. We are a constantly evolving group open to all members of the student body.
United Young Generation
Made up of approximately forty high school students who enjoy involvement with cultural awareness activities. Members are encouraged to maintain good grades as well as to present themselves as good role models to others. Activities during the year include participation in the Homecoming parade, Friday Night Live, Black History Month activities, and the end of the year trip.
An important publication at Middle Township High School. It is a collection of pictures and articles arranged, so that every student has a record of the year. It requires planning, writing, photography, page designing, and proofreading. Many hours of dedication and commitment are put into the yearbook. Yearbook is hard work. It is a valuable learning experience dealing with group dynamics, sales, computers, publishing, and running a small business. It is not for everyone; but those willing to commit the time and energy, it’s fun. At MTHS, we take great pride in our award-winning yearbook. The activity is open to all students; however, the editors and staff are selected in May. Freshman will be added in September.
