Middleborough High School works closely with the recruiters from the United States Armed Forces to provide information to our students who may be considering a future in the military. Recruiters are frequently visiting the high school during lunch periods. 

    MHS offers the ASVAB every year free of cost to our students. See Mrs. Baron Fontaine in the Guidance Office for more information and to sign up for this exam.
