High School Junior

On Administration & Policies: I strongly disagree with the school's dress code, because if teachers are allowed some of the privileges that we are denied what are they teaching us. Most of the dress codes that the school administration think that they set, are to better us in the future when looking for a job. But what are open toed shoes or an inch below the ear of hair, for a young boy, going to hurt. Not a fly. Those types of dress codes aren't a problem.

On Sports & Fitness: Sports at Midway High is a big deal. At the beginning of the year football is huge. There are many pep rallies held and posters with the school spirit and support seen suffocating the hallway walls! It's fun, and when any sport at Midway is taken place, you better believe they'll have support groups as well.

On Student Culture & Diversity: There are many student activities at Midway to be involved in. I've personally took the time to join the many clubs and events Midway offers, such as the Spanish Club, STUCO, Lady Panthers Basketball team, National Honor Society, Spirit of Midway, and football games. I believe that in every school there will be peer pressure and or problems being accepted in a type of crowd you want to be associated with. But I can say that at Midway High you will rarely see it. Anyone, no matter the race, will find friends easily here!

On Overall Experience: I'm only an upcoming junior at Midway High. This will be my third year, but what I've enjoyed the most would be the students and safe atmosphere that I have been privileged to partake of.

On Teachers: The teachers employed at Midway are the best in the area. They are all passionate about their teachings and very much want to see their students succeed. It isn't uncommon to see a teacher stay late after school to help a struggling student. They are all very knowledgeable about their subjects and are able to clearly get the lesson taught.
