Midway Elementary School is one of the best that Dekalb County has to offer. I appreciate the sincere love that each teacher has for their students. I want to give a hats off to the Kindergarten Staff at Midway Elem! The will truly prepare your child for First Grade! My middle child still attends and is growing each and every day in her academics thanks to the First grade team. My oldest child is at Hooper and I really wish that Midway went beyond the 3rd Grade! You guys are awesome!

The staff at Midway to me seemed to have a genuine and real concern for the students and helping the parents help the students. My children are now at Blandy. I have had a few situations arise at Blandy that I feel 100% confident I would have never encountered at Midway. I feel Midway is a great cut above Balndy.

As a parent I think Midway School have really did a good job in the last past two years I have seen a great change in my child grades. He seems very comfortable about reading when he wouldn't even try because of other school teachers would make him feel bad. I give Midway School teachers a thumbs up. Keep up the good work especially Ms. Badcock you are truly a blessing. They need more teachers like you because you really care for your students. Thank you.
