Midland Public Schools is a wonderful school district. They thrive from the success of their students. The high school I attended had a great deal of diversity and really emphasizes on this matter, educating students in the process. MPS has amazing arts programs and are very inclusive within these programs. Midland Public Schools even offers the option to enroll children in a STEM elementary school! There are plenty of options in the cafeteria for lunch, which is very loved by the students. Some teachers are questionable, but most are very caring and visibly love teaching. There has been history of bullying, but it is always handled very seriously and the discipline is always appropriate. Overall, MPS is an excellent school district that provides students with great potential.

Financial resources were allocated to provide the schools in the district with secure and bulletproof entrances. However, the food was inedible. Staff was underpaid. Bullies are allowed to do as they wish as long as they're on a sports team. Even if the bullies aren't on a sports team, the district would rather punish both parties (victim and instigator) rather than just the bully. Students are forced to pay for parking on school property or risk having a boot placed on their vehicle until the parking pass is paid for. Parking passes are $50 per vehicle. If a family has two students driving they must pay for two passes. However, if financial resources were allocated properly, this wouldn't be an issue.
What I love about Midland Public Schools is it's opportunities it offers to it's students. Midland Public Schools offers tons of school clubs to join for everyone over a wide range of topics and objectives. It has great athletics with excellent coaching and facilities making it not only successful, but fun and enjoyable for athletes. Midland Public Schools, also has an excellent music program that begins in late elementary school and is continued throughout middle school and high school. It offers different bands and orchestras to join based on your skills and talent level. I believe that Midland Public Schools struggles the most with creating an environment full of diversity and acceptance for its students. I do believe part of this is due to location, but should be pushed by staff and administration.
