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 !!!

My child is Kaitlynn Farlouis and she is in Ms. Christy's Kindergarten class. Her teacher really is caring, supportive, and she takes time to help my child understand and learn.

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!!!
