Fresh academic start
At Midlands Middle College, we believe that past performance does not define future success. We understand that for some students — and for various reasons — the traditional high school experience just doesn’t fit. We believe in second chances and fresh starts. If you’re committed to a successful future, we’re here to help you get there.
“When difficulties and challenges began to surface in the traditional school environment, and it is your child, it is comforting to know that there are options. Midlands Middle College was our solution.”
– Parent of MMC Student
Dual enrollment with tuition-free college courses
Our unique partnership with Midlands Technical College gives Midlands Middle College students can enroll in college courses at no charge. Dual enrollment supplements and enhances the standard high school curriculum and it increases course options related to students’ Individual Graduation Plans and career interest. It also helps connect students to their future, helping them see college as a reality and giving them a jump start to get there.
Our small class sizes offer more personalized and focused instruction, as well as innovative teaching and hands-on learning opportunities. We believe — and research supports — smaller classes promote higher student achievement, fewer disciplinary distractions and lower dropout rates.
In fact, a study commissioned by the US Department of Education shows not only a direct correlation between smaller classes and higher student success but also that these achievement gains are more strongly linked to class size in the upper rather than lower grades.*
