I agree this is the worst school in school history they will call cps on you everyday and every year to get your kids took from you they don't like men at all so kids in a single parent home is a plus to better work with the process of destroying families. I know a lady son fell down at the park and bumped his head they took him in a private room and made him say his parents did it after the child said he fell I've seen for my own eyes watched the teachers plan on how to create ways to give parents problems and get there kids out of the home. they are #1 for diagnosing kids with adhd are any mental illness and if you do not agree with there rules they will call cps on you and try to get your kids took this is the worst scholl out of all the worst schools in Louisiana stay away !!!

This is my son's 2nd year at Midway. He's in first grade and has one of the most excellent and dedicated teachers that I've ever seen. I was actually worried about the quality of teacher he would have this year b/c I felt like the teacher he had in kindergarten would be hard to top. I was absolutely worried for no reason. My son is 6 years old and has learned how to read so well in the short time that this school year has been in session. He's so proud when he comes home and is able to read a story to us. He absolutely LOVES his teacher and looks forward to seeing her every day. I love the fact that she pushes and challenges them a little more every day. I can actually see just how much he has learned so far in her class and am extremely proud.

Great school...My son has had great teachers so far! Although no one will ever replace Mrs. Daphne in Seth's eyes! She was always looking out fot his best interest in learning & how to keep him learning! He likes Mrs. Mandy also, she seems to be a great teacher! My hats off to them!! Midway is always asking parents to be a part of their activities! And the office staff is great! This is a wonderful school!!!

This school does have a PTO. They do not have regular meetings that they had a few years ago but do accomplish goals by asking for parents input and involvement. There are also Family nights. The teachers as well as the principal are always available to address any concerns that a parent may have. Your childs safety and education is #1. For the 7 years I have had children going to Midway, the school has constantly grown and improved. They may not have a gym for the little ones but have regular performances on their large stage for them. Parental involvement is awesome! I can honestly say I am extremely pleased with Midway after leaving Montessori school with my first child. I am sad that I have only 1 year left with our extended family at Midway. Rebecca Tate

These reviews were very helpful to me concerning my decision to send my child to Midway. I am new to the area and quite frankly I had no idea were to even start concerning my childs education. It was very reassuring to here from other mothers. I have since visited the school and instead of fearing sending my child to a public school I am actually looking forward to it.Thanks!

I would like to start out by saying this is a great school. My daughter is in kindergarten. She is doing an awesome job. I love her teacher. Mrs. Hurtt is a really good teacher. My child is reading and doing math and has mastered almost everything every 6 weeks sense the begining of school. I would like to say a special thanks to the speech teachers for every thing they have done for my child. The staff is great.Great job mrs.Hurtt,mrs. Robin, & mrs. Gwen

My son is in Kindergarten here. He was also in Pre-K here. We were worried about sending him to a public school, but one of the aids (Ms. Sticker) assured us that this was a wonderful school. We are so HAPPY that we made the decision to send him here!! It is faboulous! He is only in kindergarten and he read me a story all by himself! He is sounding out words, and his math skills are great. Thank you Ms. Dabney and Ms. Duval. We are very pleased with Midway Elementary School. (and thank you Ms. Sticker for recommending it!)

No Midway does not have a gym, but it is k-4 thru 2nd grade. They do all their P.E. outside. The school does have a pta, but due to lack of parental interest they do not have regular meetings. They had a math and science family night and the games were geared toward each grade level. I know they do use parental volunteers because a lot of my friends volunteer there. Also the principal is always available to talk with any parent who has concerns or ideas. I have found that all my sons teachers have been kind and helpful and always available if I had any concerns to address. This is by far the best elementary school in the parish.

the school does not have a GYM or a PTO meetings for parents to give their imput on things.They also do not have a parent volunteer program/and their school activities consist of games that are for pre-k.It seems that their idea is to keep ideas to their own,no imput from parents,my lil girl has been in this school for 3 years.We need improvement/need a gym/need more art and music.
