Overview / History

  • front of Midway Park Elementary

    Midway Park Elementary School, the first "school-in-the-round," opened its doors in the fall of 1967. The round concept was selected because of its adaptability to the educational program and its economy in construction.

    For more than fifty years, the community/staff partnership has continued to grow and adapt to meet the needs of each and every student. The seventy dedicated members of the faculty truly share the philosophy that every child is special. We work hard to help the students to understand that they are responsible for their learning and for their behavior but we are here to support every student, every day.

    Midway Park has an enrollment of approximately 760 students from a variety of cultures and backgrounds. Educational programs at Midway Park include both regular education for pre-kindergarten through sixth grades and special education programs for kindergarten through sixth grades.

    In addition, the ESL program serves over 200 students, as does the Title I Reading and Math programs. Special events such grade level curriculum nights, all school activities, our annual Fall Carnival and other student performances add to a campus climate and culture that is second to none.

    Midway Park is dedicated to providing a child-centered educational environment which fosters a lifelong love of learning, enables the achievement of personal fulfillment, and produces responsible citizens.
