Parent Satisfaction Highest in Private Schools
Private school parents are significantly more satisfied with the schools their children attend than are parents from other sectors, including public charter schools and public district schools. That finding comes from two new studies released by Education Next, a scholarly journal on school reform published by the Hoover Institution at Stanford University and the Harvard Program on Education Policy and Governance at the Harvard Kennedy School.
The first study looked at results from a survey, commissioned by Education Next in May and June of 2016, of a nationally representative sample of 1,571 parents with children in school. The second study analyzed results from a survey of over 17,000 families conducted in 2012 by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). The second study’s larger sample size allowed for a deeper dive into population subgroups.
The Dictionary Project
Each year, the Dictionary Project aims to assist young students in becoming good writers and active readers by providing them with their own personal dictionary. The dictionaries are a gift to each student to use at school and at home for years to come. So far, more than 28 million dictionaries have been provided!
We would like to send a big thanks to the Rotary Club of Lenexa for sponsoring dictionaries for our third graders this year, and for recently delivering them to Midland. We think you are real heroes!
he·ro ˈhirō/ noun 1. a person who is admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities "a great hero" synonyms: brave person, brave man/woman, man/woman of courage, man/woman of the hour, lionheart
Host a Foreign Student!
Leaving one's family to fly around the world and study in a foreign land and a second language is an intense and life-changing experience for a young person. Families that open their homes and hearts to host one of these adventurers have a unique opportunity to make an impact on a young life.
Midland looks forward to benefiting by its new relationship with an organization called A+ Global Education, Inc..Led by a team of dedicated, Christian leaders, A+ has agreed to recruit foreign students for Midland. Students will arrive the end of December 2016.
Midland needs your help! In addition to arranging academic placement, A+ also recruits local families to host these students and provides full-time, local support to the host family and the foreign student along with a monthly stipend to cover expenses associated with hosting. Hosting can be an incredibly rewarding experience for a family. If your family has an interest in hosting a foreign student on a full-time or part-time basis, please contact Mary Frishman, our A+ representative:

Note: Host families contract directly with A+ Global Education, Inc. and not with Midland Adventist Academy.
