About Us

Midland Elementary School, home of the Mustangs, is a K-5 school in the heart of the historic Midland area, just south of Tacoma.  The current building opened its doors for students in September 2003, replacing the original Midland School which served the community from 1891-1982.  Midland is a growing school, with over 500 students and more than 60 highly qualified and dedicated staff.

At Midland, we are highly engaged learners in a responsible, respectful and caring community.  We expect all students to achieve at high levels on challenging academic standards, and teachers to engage students in rigorous, relevant, high quality work.  In order to achieve our academic goals, we also believe that it’s important for maintain a positive and caring learning environment, so we teach Safe and Civil expectations throughout the year.  Education is a truly collaborative effort among parents, families, students, staff and the community, so we welcome volunteers and community members to be a part of the important work that we do each day.  It’s great to be a Midland Mustang!
