Based on the rural area, this school brings forth many opportunities for our kids. The teachers are highly qualified and much improvement has been added to the building. Although additional work has been added a new addition needs to be added to the school as well as an elementary addition. There are too many kids per teacher. The Midway Duval line needs to be finalized. too many Midway students attend our school out of district.
