My daughter has attended Midland Academy from 2nd grade through 5th grade. We have been more than pleased with every teacher she has had. Communication varies from teacher to teacher but none were lacking. Even though this school scores a 4, it does not reflect the quality of education offered to your child. My child happens to love learning and does her homework without being asked. If she doesn't understand it, she asks for clarification. I know the material for the CRCT's is taught through the school year because she scores Exceeds on nearly all CRCT tests every year. The 4 rating from Great Schools has a lot to do with the CRCT test scores. If your child loves learning they will do just fine in this school. The one thing this school lacks and that is parent participation. I suspect a lot of schools have this problem. PTA attendance is low and getting volunteers for the fall festival was difficult at best.

In order for this school to be an excellent school it takes the support of the parents as well. In looking around in the PTA meetings, there wre not many parents there. Of course, at the school programs, there were not many parents there. My 3 children have attended Midland academy last year and will attend this year as well. Anytime that I had a concern in regards to my children, I never had a problem. Of course, my daughters are excellent and well behaved children. The principal is straight forward and fair. If you were to attend any other school, it would be the same way. Ask your child's teacher how you can assist them so that the classroom environment can be fun and educational. If it is just to print homework for the next day, do it so that the teacher can have more time for your child/dren. The time that you all took to write these negative reviews, that could have been time to help the teacher out. It does not take much to get a child eager to learn except with the help of the parents.

I dont know why the rating has dropped from 8 to 6 within a year. My daughter is in 2nd grade and she has been doing very good. Her teacher Ms. Hardcastle is really very outstanding and very hardworking. Also all my mails to her were always promptly answered. She really has an impact on all students and my child has learn many things from her. I was never forced to do any fundraising. Her other teachers for music,PE, and art were good. There were not much of extracurricular activities for a second graders , maybe the afterschool had some. Overall I had a very good experience here but sad that I have to leave because we are moving from here. All the best to Midland school and thanks to all the teachers and the principal.

Not happy with this school at all. The school is focused on everything but education. Teachers do not communicate with parents much. I had to goto the classroom to find out what they were learning and what texts they were using. This school is far below average. Teachers are uncaring and just go through the motion day-to-day. Their top priority is safety which is good but it's to the point where it's annoying. Very disappointed with this school and we're looking to transfer out kids.

Great principal and Vice Principal but HORRIBLE teachers . The teachers are rude and do not put the children first. They also have social groups and are more worried about each other then the students. My children have gone their for two years glad to see them go to a new school!

My children attended Midland Academy last year. This is a great school if you're not concerned about your child's education, and you enjoy fundraisers. The Principal was extremely rude and unprofessional. My children no longer attend.

I loved this school when we first moved here. The principal, Rocky Wilson, retired and I think this school has gone down since. I do not like the new principal at all. She does not return phone calls or emails and is in general not very friendly. I've had mostly good experiences with the teachers except 5th grade. I have found that the teachers won't have a lot of communication with you unless you contact them first. They are usually pretty good about getting back to you. The Special Ed teacher and Speech teacher are top notch, however. They are the reason I gave the 4 star rating instead of only 3. Mrs. Boutwell goes above and beyond for her speech students. Mrs. Tatum does her best to help out students that aren't in her classroom when asked to.

I love this school. My daughter's teacher last year was great. Miss McCarty really made my daughter's transition from our move to the school smooth. The office staff and principal are very helpful and friendly. The only place for improvement would be better organization of the pick-up procedure of car riders.

Midland is a fantastic school. The teachers are very caring and encouraging. The Principal and Vice Principal are some of the best i have seen. They are really involved and its amazing to see them in the hall ways in the morning greetings the kids by there names. Although this school has a large population they still try to learn about every student.

I get more charity fundriaser papers home than I do my childs work. I don't like that so much pressure is put on the kids to participate in all of the fundraisers....like if they don't bring money in to do a charity walk they have to sit in a classroom and do extra work. I would see money rasied and go to the teachers for supplies and basic needs of the school instead.

We love Midland! This is my daughter's second year. I am very involved in PTA. I have never seen an organization so involved as I found here. The teachers are great and the principal is friendly and always available to everyone...including the children. I am sorry to say that we are moving to FL in a few months. I want to stay at Midland. I hope to have a great experience in FL as I did here.

Midland Academy is the best school in Muscogee County in my opinion. My children have attended other schools but this one by far out ranks the others. The teachers are helpful and considerate. They are always willing to meet with me by phone, in person, and always by email. I have come to feel a part of the Midland family as well as my children. My oldest child was labeled a problem by his previous school. Once at Midland he blossomed and was no longer a problem for anyone. My middle child received a challenge while at Midland. That same challenge has not been met in middle school. She is now bored. My youngest has had very supportive teachers who have met with his learning problems every step of the way. I know Midland is the best place for children!

During the two years my daughter went to Midland Academy we were very pleased with the facility, the principal, the academic experience, and the teachers. Midland Academy is focused on the children and what is best for them. They created an atmosphere that expanded the boundaries of each child's learning experience. The parent volunteers that I saw in the school where there because they felt the parents and teachers needed to work together for the benefit of all the children at Midland Academy.

Midland Academy is a great school. There is very little discipline problems there. I award that to the assistant principal. The teachers are excellent. There is great communication between the parents and the teachers. The principal and the assistant principal are always in the classroom which is a great thing. I recommend Midland to any family coming to Columbus or already in Columbus that wants their child to recieve a great education. Midland is a very family oriented school.

Midland Academy is ok at best. I first thought it was going to be a great school and I will say that the principal and assistant principal are pretty good. If you can, put them in private school. There are several great private schools in Columbus. That's what I did.

The principal and assistant principal at Midland are incredible! They are very involved in what goes on at the school. You name it, from students to bus loading to cafeteria issues. No teacher, student, or parent feels like they cannot go to them for anything. I truly believe they are what make Midland so successful!

I first thought this would be a wonderful school for my child, but I have come to notice that the teachers have a very close clique within themselves, but they truly don't care about the students as if they were their own children. I was very disappointed in some of the teachers behavior. They must remember that these are children and we as adults are there to guide and support them and also protect them from negative attitudes and influences, but that is what comes directly from the teachers there. I would not allow my child to return to this school for any reason.

Midland Academy is an amazing school! For those parents who don't appreciate this school have never experienced a setting that doesn't offer the same caliber of education that Midland Academy offers. We are very fortunate to have a school that does focus on what is being tested since that is how our children are measured! I have never had a moment where I felt that my child didn't get what she needed. As an educator myself, I feel that Midland Academy certainly meets up to my standards without a doubt!

The interaction and communication between parents and teachers are kept to the miniumum. They are teaching the test and not concerned with anything else. The teachers are very hostile if you ask them questions. I'm very disappointed in this school. I expected more.

Midland Academy is an excellent school! I feel so confident about my children's education at Midland. They are taught by creative, innovative teachers who stretch them to reach their potential. Rocky Wilson, the principal, does an outstanding job in leading this group of teachers and students. Midland is a safe, nurturing place for children, and I am thankful for it!

I have 2 soon to be 3 children attending this school. It amazes me every time I speak to them and hear them talking at the level of maturity and intelligence that they and the kids they play with display these days. I am very glad that my children are students at Midland Academy and also am glad that they are challenged every day to use their minds . A Great school.
