This is a great school. The administration and staff really work with the parents and students to get the most out of education. You can tell that the staff actually care about the kids and are willing to work though issues that may arise instead of ignoring them.

Midland Trail Elementary is an awesome school! The administration, staff, and PTA works extremely hard to make sure the children are learning. There are many programs to get the parents involved in their childs education. The test scores prove this!
