Midland ISD spans 765 square miles of West Texas, including the boundaries of Midland County. Named among “The 150 Best U.S. Cities” for many years, Midland’s warm climate, friendly people, and healthy economy are primary reasons for the city’s popularity. Midland is located midway between Dallas/Fort Worth and El Paso on Interstate 20. Midland’s population is more than 100,000, with about a quarter of a million people residing in the Midland/Odessa metropolitan area. Midland serves as an administrative center for the petroleum-producing region known as the Permian Basin, where about 20 percent of America’s oil and gas reserves are located.

From Early Childhood Education to Early College High School at Midland College, students in MISD are nurtured and challenged. The district combines time-tested methods of instruction with current technology to prepare students for academic, career, and personal success. Every student has an important place and is cherished in MISD. The elementary schools help students lay a foundation of understanding in a range of subjects. From learning the alphabet to learning algebra, elementary students gain skills to advance in secondary education. Students in secondary level schools further develop as scholars and citizens. Students not only learn important curricula, but are able to find their niche in numerous clubs, teams and sports. Coursework is designed to train students for both higher education and the workforce. Thank you for your participation in education, and for your support of Midland ISD!
