    Midway was a great school. The teachers there had great expierence.

    I have had an opportunity to visit other schools and think Midway is the best by far. The teachers go above and beyond to help their students. The principal knows each child by name and what class they are in. It is a very friendly environment to walk into!

    I think Midway is a wondeful school. I really like the extra help the children get when they are strugggling. The enitre staff is very friendly and I was shocked at how fast they all knew our names when we first started going there.

    This school is wonderful--well the teachers are wonderful--the principal is another story. Sometimes she says hi to you especially if you do alot of the school but for those of us who work and can't help out all the time sorry. But she can at least be friendly. They need someone like her at the middle school.
