I went to this school and it was the best school ever.If it wasn't for me living in Kentucky I would have my kids enrolled there right now.I wish I could drive them to school there.I think the teachers are doing a great job.The principle is excellent,and I love the p.e teachers.

My child has been in Midway since Kindergarten. I agree about the overcrowding situation. I had researched when we first moved here and Midway at that time was ranked one of the highest schools in this area. I know believe that this is not so true. I think that the teachers need to be more about teaching and being creative. I know it is alot on a teacher when you are overcrowded, but that is when the director of schools and the school board should be looking at what they can do to help these teachers out. I also believe that the teachers need to be mentored more and observed more in the classroom. I have had a few issues and some have been pushed under the rug. I think that parent involvement needs to start from kindergarten then on.

This school is over crowded due to parents driving their children in from areas where they should attend another school. Music and art are not supported very highly, but sports are. Bullying is not punished appropriately. My child was hit on the bus and nothing was done about it. Political and religious views are allowed to be presented by teachers in class. My concerns when presented have not ever been addressed.

I was an eighth grader last year and I loved midway the teachers and staff are great. I do very good in high school with what I learned from midway. once I moved to midway my grade went up dramically. I miss midway but will always have the memories. I would tell anyone that midway is the only place to go to school, and I know I have been to Springdal, SMMS, and TNT and they do not compare to midway
