I love this schoool! its like a public school. they care about your family and how they are doing


Posted September 24, 2009

The school has received a new principal in the last few years. Parents have virtually turned into strangers at the school and basically serve as car pool and homework slaves.

I love the teachers and the principal. The school is very safe.

This elementary school is the closest thing to a private school someone can find in a public school setting. The principal (who just retired) has made this school the safest and best school in the area. Many of the students are from out-of-area schools and have transferred in because it's such a great school. They are one of the few schools who still offer extracurricular outings for their students. The teachers are phenomenal and really care about the students. Most teachers have been there for years. I can't say enough about this school!

I can not even begin to tell you how pleased I am with Midland Elementary, my son is a special needs child and I have been to the breaking point with him and the education he has recieved, he was transfered to Midland a llittle over a month ago and Wow! the difference in my son, at home and at school is remarkable. The principle, and the teachers there are so caring, and at the same time very straight forward to these children that they are there to teach them. They truly have made a difference in my sons life.

You won't find a better school for your child to attend in the upper Kanwaha county area. The teachers are in the class room teaching what is needed they have after school programs 'study bees', diamond back parent days (where you can go to scool with your child for a hour to see whats going on in the class room. Go to any middle school and you can pick out the midland trail kids from the other chidren because they are taught respect and manners. You would make a great choice by picking midland trail elem.
