Midland Independent School District Reviews

The district faces a shortage of teachers, and long term subs are often required. The resources available to students and teachers are often outdated and unusable, and I personally know some teachers with equipment and supplies decades old. Funding for extra curricular activities almost entirely goes to the football teams, and other organizations are left to fund raise for themselves. While there are some new schools, both high schools are very outdated (built in the 50s and 60s) and very unsecure. The teacher shortage also causes the hiring of inexperienced and unqualified teachers, that can not adequately teach. The online grade database the district uses is very complicated and difficult for teachers and students to use, making it harder for students to check their grades. While the district offers an excellent GT program, it is by no means a good district, and falls short in most metrics.

I am currently a senior at Lee High School. I have been an MISD student all my school years. I enjoyed my elementary years. I learned a lot and made many friends. I had great teachers who cared about our education.
Junior high was fun as well. I had the opportunity to experience other opportunities like band. I was in band for one year. I enjoyed it, but realized it wasn't my passion.
I found my true passion in my freshman year when I joined choir. I had never been so excited about a class like I was about going to choir. Lee High School has the best choir program and Directors. I'm a two year All-State winner and our choir has won numerous UIL competitions.
Looking back at all my years as an MISD student and all the experiences I've had, I can truly and honestly say that I would not change a thing. Everything I have learned, experienced, accomplished, and achieved has made me who I am. And I love who I am!
The teacher and material shortage needs to be fixed. The cafeteria food needs to improve. Other than that, everything was great!
