  • I went to MHS, the years I spent there were some of the best years I've had, I didn't get to graduate with my class (moved after 11th grade) but I was still welcomed at our class reunion. That's meant so much to me to see the people I grew up with. Only wish I could see the teachers that helped mold me into the person I've become. As a father of 2 daughters I would send my girls there if I could.

  • I did not attend this no-doubt outstanding institution of learning. Indeed, I have never been in the state of Arkansas. I am aware, however, that the esteemed intellectual, Mr. Clint McCance, who employs his educational expertise as a member of this school district's school board, is an advocate for the persecution and suicide of students he compassionately refers to as "fags" and "queers". "Queers don't have the right to ruin the lives of the rest of us", School Board member McCance pleas for understanding.

    Not that I would ever consider abusing my children (some of whom might just be the "fags" and "queers" McCance so warmly regards) by sending them to a public school, but, hypothetically speaking, if I were to do so, and if I had the dubious privilege of living in (not-so) Pleasant Plains, Arkansas, I think that Clint McCance would have to be removed from the school board (if not committed to a mental institution) before I would be enrolling my children. When pigs fly, of course...

  • I went to Midland and the only thing I can say is that the school showed me what kind of school I DON'T want my children going to. The expectations of the students is very low and they are not encouraged to dream big and strive to achieve any and all goals. The percentage of students that actually go to college and FINISH is very low. I was a top student, but this was from my own ambition. The curriculum is below standard and many of the teachers were uninterested. Midland needs to raise its standards or be closed. Those children deserve encouragement and opportunities.

  • I love Midland. I graduated from here, and have returned as a school board member. We have changed administration in the last couple of years which was tough. I think we are definitely on the right track now. Hopefully we will be able to provide the teachers and students a new school in the years to come. My children attend this school and i would not have it any other way. Its small and doesnt have the problems that other bigger schools have.

  • The academic performance at Midland could certainly stand improvement. Personally, I think there is a lack of discipline at the administrative level. I don't believe in zero tolerance, but there certainly needs to be a low tolerance for inappropriate dress, and behavior.

  • the negative publicity of the teacher/ student fight did not help. kids are out of control and the administration stand around and look dumb.

  • If Midlan had the lowest discipline score in Arkansas, doesn't that translate to the most disciplinary actions taken by staff? I'm not exactly sure how this "discipline report card" was compiled, but it would have to be from statistics reported by each school...and they can't very well report actions NOT taken by staff. So it sounds like the school is taking a lot of action but it isn't helping the situation.

  • When I attended Midland High School, I found it to be a very good school. The student community are overall quite friendly and accepting, and the faculty are both very knowledgeable and helpful. I was never the target of discriminatory remarks or actions, and in fact enjoyed my time there. The school counselor, Deborah Rettig, is an especially talented individual, and was very helpful to me in my pursuit of opportunities for education after High School. GO MUSTANGS!!!!!!!

  • In response to the letter I received before this last school year started. stating that we were not good community members because we took our child out of this school district. I have to disagree with that. I consider myself and my family very important members of the community. My children come first, it doesn't matter the cost. In my child's last year at midland (his junior year) he did miss some school. We had doctors notes, because he was sick often. He even went to school when was sick to keep from missing so much. The last semester he worked very hard to get his grades up. He did it,I am very proud of him. But the principal and teachers didn't seem to think the same way. So they took away his credits for the last semester. We didn't think he would graduate. But since we took him out of this so called school, He has done so well. He was on honor roll, has scholarships, and graduated with the highest percentage of his class. The faculty there helped him and he also gave all he had. But without their help he would not have graduated. That's what teachers and faculty are for, to help not go against everything the student tries to do to better themselves.

  • Midland High School is a really good school. We have exceptional teachers and classmates. Midland really prepares us for the future. We have all kinds of opportunities to learn. Our sports are really great. For a small school we have a bunch of athletic talent. Even though we're small we stick together and show everyone that our huge goals can be accomplished. Midland is a great school and we wouldn't go any where else.
