I like many of the teachers and the atmosphere is friendly, everyone is very unified, however, there are many rules and regulations which I find distracting or unhelpful with a learning environment. The school has a dress code that is never enforced which makes learning difficult. They have many rules in regards to who enters the school when which can make it difficult to leave the school for school excused absences as well as things like doctors appointments. Although I do enjoy the safety, it can be a hassle. I also disagree with their parking permits. Everyone has an assigned spot which causes many issues in the parking lot with people trying to park while other people are trying to leave and chaos ensuing because everyone is trying to find their specific spot instead of parking first come first serve.

Midland High School is the most welcoming and positive school environment I have ever had the pleasure of attending. The teachers are kind and helpful and the administration are amazing employees. Although the school is not very diverse, everyone is treated equally and people of different race and ethnicity are welcomed with open arms. Overall the entire school district is exemplary and they do a great job preparing kids for higher education.
We are the only school with the chemic symbol in the whole country. Everyone knows what chemic pride is in Midland. You can feel it through the energy of the student body, like during pep assemblies, football games, or spirit weeks. I am so grateful to be part of this family and so incredibly proud through the achievements of fellow students. Chemics are all hard working and care about one another. I wouldn't of wanted to spend my high school career anywhere else.
