Amazing school. Wish I could keep my kids going here, but we had to move. The teachers are wonderful, dedicated, caring, I never felt worried to drop my kids off here. Principal is awesome. Lots of parents involved.

My son is in Kindergarten, and has had nothing less of an amazing experience at Midland. The school is phenomenal. His teacher, Mrs. Hafer, is sweet, caring, and expects a lot out of the children in her classroom, but in a positive way. My son is making lots of progress, and comes home full of new information everyday. The principal, Mrs. Lerner, is full of energy, and all of the children love her. I volunteer weekly in my sons class, and really love watching how much each child enjoys being at school. I wish I could have gone to Midland! We are looking forward to a long relationship with the school and staff.

My daughter was 4 when she entered Kindergarten. I had already taught her to read & I wanted her to be in a fun, creative but challangeing school. Midland is ALL THAT & more. Yes, expectations are high but these kids can do it! People under-estimate children & even though my daughter was 'ahead' for her age, she began to amaze me pretty quickly once school started with all she was learning & how quickly. Her teacher, Mrs. Schrag, is wonderful. I'm dreading moving next year away from here & am having a hard time finding a school that's up to par with Midland. Wonderful campus, safe, LOVING, understanding, FUN.

We love the new (January 2008) principal! She's energetic, enthusiastic, and has genuine interest in and affection for the kids. Sometimes, she can barely move around the campus because all the kids crowd around her for hugs or high fives. The teachers are dedicated and caring and the campus is new and beautiful. Our kids are doing great here!

Midland Elementary School has a wonderful staff who care about the children. The education is quality. Parent involvement is strong and the campus is beautiful. Teachers do not seem pleased with their current leadership.

Midland Elementary has far exceeded my expectations for my child. All her teachers so far are well-educated and caring professionals. The principal is very approachable. Then they are supplemented by the Extended School Services onsite, whose staff is really supportive of my child's education. They provide a nice environment to do homework too, as well as for playtime. It really takes a village to raise a child and I am grateful Midland is my 'village'.

The primary-level teachers here are wonderful and do more than just act as educators. They teach children how to conduct themselves as people too. The office people are very helpful, and friendly. Parent involvement is overall good, but could be better, if compared to other schools near the area.

If you are thinking about sending your child to this school come prepared they pride themselves on excellance which unfortunately means that average is not good enough. Thier standards are extremely high. Starting in kindergarden children are expected to read small books, write full sentences, and read or have read to them a word problem and write the math equation it takes to solve it. So much for school being fun.

Midland is a terrific school. As my son is now entering the 4th grade he has the opportunity to enroll in the Midland Academy which focuses on a higher level of learning geared toward getting the child ready for a college/university type setting. The only negative thing that I have to say about the school - and which I found in both the 2nd and 3rd classes that he has been in - is the lack of communication from the teachers. School are always stressing parent involvement and communication, but I have had instances where notes/phone calls to the teachers go unanswered. I find that, as a parent, this is extrememly frustrating. Other than that, I have nothing but good things to say about the school.
