Midland Independent School District

Midland ISD serves local students with an excellence and optimism that sets Midland apart.

Academic and extracurricular programs provide many opportunities for students to continue in development as scholars and citizens. Parent and volunteer involvement is encouraged.

Following the passage of a bond issue, three new elementary schools are being filled with young learners. Technology-driven education opportunities are increasing, and students are being prepared for their futures. Additionally, teachers and district staff members are backed by the community. As a result, MISD’s approximately 23,000 students can grow in the best learning atmospheres.

It’s a great time in Midland ISD!

From learning the alphabet to learning algebra concepts, students are made ready to move into secondary education.
