My children have had the best education and teachers at The Midland Academy. The teachers really care about the students and work with them to succeed. I can't say enough about the teachers at the school. My children especially love the Crew Program and their Crew buddies.

The turnover is ridiculous and from what I hear, it has been for years. It affected my child greatly and we left.

My children are starting their 13th and 10th year at the Midland Academy and we have been very pleased with their education and opportunities here. The teachers are able to get to know them and work with them individually when needed and are approachable and ready to help any student who is wants to succeed. Yes, there have been changes that happen just like anywhere, nothing stays the same forever, and they cause a little anxiety for us until everything is settled again but the school administration's main concern is the well being and success of the students so they do their best to make the changes that have to happen as smooth as possible. Parents are involved at every level, from staff to volunteers. They help in every aspect of making the school run and grow so you know that the students are foremost in their minds as they all have a vested interest. The character education is the base for all expected student behavior and is used to help them develop better ways of communicating with each other as well as their teachers, staff, and parents. It is challenging academically and welcoming socially and I know my children are cared for and safe.

The dean is leaving after this year and so are a large number of students and teachers. But everything seems to be a big secret.

I am pleased with The Midland Academy, it is a school that continues to uphold American values. Earlier this year the school had an assembly where students painted an American flag to patriotic music. The assembly was great, all of the kids were there and many of us parents were there too. I want my children to grow up knowing that the United States is a great country. My children are getting a great education while learning about our country.

We have been very satisfied with the education our child is receiving at Midland Academy. it is a great alternative to large public schools. There are not a ton of "extra's" but the academics are very good and that is what is important. There is a great band program, a few sports, several clubs/ organizations, and an after school program. There is no lunch program and children are required to wear uniforms. If you are looking for a smaller, family feeling for your child come check out Midland Academy!

We're very happy with the education our children are receiving at the Midland Acdemy. The academics are definitely advanced in lower and middle school, I'd say about 1-2 years ahead of other public schools. Children can learn so very much at this school and will be well-prepared for college, as long as the parents are supportive. It's all what you make of it, but the opportunity is there for a great education for every child.

After being repeatedly disappointed with Midland Public, we changed to this school and have been happy. Our child is learning so much. We are very hands on with her education and the teaching philosophy of the Midland Academy complements that.

I have 2 Middle School students and they love there teachers and the over all atmosphere of the school. They found the students very accepting and The Midland Academy has changed their lives in a very positive way.

I love the fact that my children can attend a school that the parents can be involved in. Education is very important to me and I like to know exactly where my child is at. The teachers are very approachable and willing to let you help in the classrooms. As much as possible each child is challenged at his or her level. Classroom sizes are a little larger than I would like, but it just shows how many people are coming to this school because of the academic excellence. I love being a part of a school that the adminstration is easy to approach and will sit and listen to concerns and praises. The 60 minutes of driving time a day are very well worth the price of the education my children receive at the academy.

I love the education my children are getting at the Midland Academy. I feel that they are challenged and encouraged to do their best. The teachers are strict and structured yet nurturing. The fact the parents are encouraged to be involved allows me to be in the school and near my children helping in areas all throughout the school.

I LOVE THIS SCHOOL! As a parent who has dealt with the public school failure, I turned to home schooling as my only option. After 2 years I reasearched my options. After walking through the school I decided I would try it out. I am so glad I did. The parent involvement is great, the staff is always available for questions and I have never been told anyone is ever to busy to answer my questions. My children are both doing well academically and challenged daily. They are constantly reminded that there actions reflect them as an individual and not as a group. If you are looking for a school where Adminstration and Staff care about your childs well being as well as their education, and challenges them then this is the school for you.

Very disappointing! The school promises a lot but does NOT deliver. We came there for the advanced cirrculum, focus on character, programs like the Kawanis club, etc. and in every case we have been let down or the programs we were told about about are not even running. There is NO administrative presence in the school what so ever therefore there is no consistency in the way classrooms are run, expectations and rules to be followed. If this school was run at all like they say or describe in their handbook it would be great but as of right now that is not the case!!!

I can't say enough about this school for my kids education. I would have loved to have seen Mr Damiels stay, as we have not yet formed an opinion on the new first grade teacher. The only people that would not like the Academy are the ones not putting forth any effort into their child's studies. I would like a few things to be different, but no one is perfect. Cleaning should be a higher concern for the kindergaten room. Overall I am happy that my kids go to the Academy.

Midland Academy offers a great compliment to the many progessive preschool programs offered in the city of Midland. Many preschool programs are so advanced here that if you want your child to continue to be challenged then private school is the only choice, Midland Academy is the private school alternative with a public school price. The class sizes are small and everybody knows everyone else. Even as early as Kindergarten the classes start out very tactile and get the children out of their seats to learn. And the teachers use many different forms of media to teach the kids. It is challenging but small enough to notice if a child is struggling. My children love their school

I love the fact our kids can earn college credit at the schools expence! My daughter will have the chance to earn an Associates Degree by the time most other kids her age are just starting college. Good Grief, how great is that in this day and age!?!

We ABSOLUTELY LOVE the Academy! Looking for a tuition-free alternative to private school or traditional public school? Is home-schooling not an option? Check out the Academy! It serves grades k-12 so children don't ever need to change schools. Uniforms are required which makes fashion easy for kids trying to survive in an overly fashion conscious world. Academics? TERRIFIC! Parent involvement? AWESOME! The school embraces parents as active partners in your child's education. Teacher quality? UNSURPASSED! Safety and Discipline? ABSOLUTELY CRITICAL! The Academy emphasizes good character and rewards it. This truly is a terrific place to send your kids and I hope that you will at least consider it as an option.

Midland Academy is an excellent school! The staff is wonderful and they truly care about the kids. The kids learn while having fun. The kids wear uniforms, which makes it so easy in the morning! I have found the cost of uniforms versus regular clothes is a lot less. I really like how they help each child reach their individual potential.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Michigan used the Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in math, reading and writing; in grades 5 and 8 in science; and in grades 6 and 9 in social studies. Currently, GreatSchools' ratings reflect 2013 MEAP results; ratings will be updated after 2014 Michigan Merit Examination (MME) results are released. The MEAP is a standards-based test, which measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Michigan. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.

Beginning in the 2011-2012 school year, the Michigan State Board of Education implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the MEAP test. In addition, they have recalculated past years' results using these new standards for proficiency, making the above year-over-year results comparable.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
