I am a senior at Midland High School, and I have to say that my years at Midland have been amazing! It is truly a wonderful school with excellent teachers and an amazingly accepting atmosphere. If I am blessed with a family in the future, I will definitely send my children to the Midland Shool District!

I graduated from midland in the nineties. It was and still is a fantastic place for a child to grow up. No we arent the biggest. We dont have football yet. Our facilities are aging. The one thing that this school does have is heart. We set the precedent for the entire state and school systems when this poor little community raised over four hundred thousand dollars to save the school. We are very proud of the teachers that stayed with us through thick and thin. Very thankful that our community loved it enough to not let it go by the wayside. I am a board member now and i will tell you there are some exciting developments on the horizon. With a very intelligent forward thinking superintendent at the helm, we will be the first place every kid wants to go. Love you mustangs.

Oh my gosh I can't tell you how much I love this school and its faulty. Every child is given individual attention and offered so many life tools. I drive 40 miles one way just so that my children can go to this school. It gets two thumbs up from our family and many others!

In my opinion & opinion's expressed by others that the Midland High School is not only a biased school but a family run school. I know from experince that they do not treat the children the same. I have a child that goes to the elemtary & she is treated equally. So my opnion is I do not care if the Midland High School is shut down & I will not contribute any funds (with the exception of my taxes)to further allow any this school to stay open.

I went to a larger school, with about 1,300 hundred students, and if I had to do over I would have went to Midland School, both of my children, went to Midland , were honor students, played sports, and went on to college, and made, the deans list, they were honor students, there also, I believe the education, they recieved from there was excellent, the staff, teachers, admin. are all great, and care and strive to challenge,encourage,each child, it was a great place for my kids to learn and become the people they are today. I thank the staff for a job well done.

I am about to enter my senior year at Midland and I for one believe that the school is excellent. Let me explain. The academics are outstanding. How many rural schools have concurrent-credit college courses? The athletic teams are excellent and the coaches even better. We have top-of-the-line technology with the T.I. Navigator systems. We are the first and only school in AR to have a school-santioned Tae Kwon Do team. The teachers put their hearts and souls into the school and the students do the same. I am proud to say I have been a part of this school. I owe my spirit to this school. Valerie Thompson, Senior 2006

I graduated from Midland High School years ago and had a great experience. The teachers are fantastic and caring, and the principal even kept up with grade situations to keep you on your toes. The athletics are awesome! Great coaches and very nice facilities. I wouldn't change anything about my high school experiences there, especially my athletic years! Thank you!
