Midway Elementary School5

Both of my children have attended/are attending this school. I cannot say enough good things about this school. It is a smaller/older school and because of that, you feel like a part of a special family. While not every teacher is perfect, the teachers and staff treat the kids with respect and love all while challenging them to learn. This school works to your child's level and has the resources necessary for those with learning disabilities. (Not every school does). My only complaint is overcrowding however this is not a problem specific to this school only, it is a county wide problem.
I have had nothing but a wonderful experience at this school. My daughter is in 2nd grade this year and my son in kindergarten. My daughters 1st grade teacher (Mrs. Gober) made an absolute lasting empression on her as well as our whole family and she will always be remembered. My son was able to get my daughters kindergarten teacher who is an amazing teacher and we are so greatful! The environment of the school is warm, inviting and has somewhat of a home-like feel! The administration and staff are wonderful and I believe Midway is a wonderful school!
Great school if your child has no learning disabilities. If your child does have learning disabilities, then he/she will be placed in special education were he/she will only learn how to take the CRCT. Your child will be left behind.
My son is in kindergarten this year, and we LOVE this school, and especially his teacher. It feels like a small, family-like atmosphere. A very nurturing environment. He had learned to read by Christmas break, and is SO excited to be able to read bedtime stories to me for a change. :-) I would definitely recommend this school!
I have 2 daughters there one started in kindergarten and now in 1st grade, her kindergarten teacher told me that she would have her reading on her own and writing on her own by the end of the school year last year and she did just that. Midway has offered GA pre-k to and my 4 year attends Midway and I find it a great asset to when she starts kindergarten, she will already know the school and some of the teachers. Love Forsyth school system.
