Midlothian, TX is an excellent community to live and to raise a family. We have enjoyed the city's commitment to providing its residents with the amenities desired for everyday living and its commitment to planned growth. In raising a family, the most important things to look for in a community are schools, faith-based opportunities and convenience. The school system is amazing from elementary to HS and is providing children excellent educational and extracurricular opportunities every single day. It also has exceptional programming that meets the needs of students with learning differences. The point is ... they are focused on students.

I moved to Midlothian when I was in the first grade. Ever since I moved here, I've been given so many opportunities from making amazing friends, going to great schools, and more. All the schools have teachers that truly care about their students succeeding and are great at what they do. Many of the houses are very nice quality with lots of land or apart of housing editions and neighborhoods. There are unique restaurants to the town with many different community activities to all throughout the year. Mostly all the community members are very friendly, coming from a variety of different backgrounds. It is an extremely safe town with low crime rates making it great for new families with small children.
Midlothian is a wonderful town that has been growing for a while. I grew up in Midlothian and I have seen so many great things that have been accomplished by individuals in this community. There are many fun activities that happen here in Midlothian. There are little festivals like a wine walk, there are movie nights in parks, firework shows, community fairs, and parades. These parades are to celebrate things like the 4th of July, Christmas, Homecoming and more. Midlothian has such a great community due to the wonderful people who live here.
