FROM THE DESK OF THE PRINCIPAL
August 2014

     Midland Valley High School is located in Graniteville, South Carolina with an enrollment of 1200 students. Our mission is to promote academic success, respect, lifelong learning, and citizenship. Our stakeholders have made a commitment to provide the most relevant educational opportunities to our students. During the 2013 - 2014 academic year; sixty-four seniors graduated with honors, seven seniors were named Palmetto Fellows and one hundred nineteen students were eligible for Life Scholarships. We were named a Palmetto Gold School for first time. Our Federal Accountability Rating System Grade of 89.4 (B) made us the highest rated high school in Aiken County for the second consecutive year. . The Class of 2014 was awarded 10.5 million dollars in scholarships.

     Our students excelled in local, regional, state, and national competitions. In athletics, two students participated in the North/South All-Star softball game, eight students were named to All-State football, basketball, baseball, or softball teams. One student was selected All State Band and the NRJOTC Rifle Team placed second in the SC Junior Olympic Competition earning a slot at Nationals.

     Students and staff members are encouraged to support our community and various charities. As a result, over five hundred students volunteered at events that included Special Olympics, Relay for Life, American Heart Association, and the Marine Corps Toys for Tots. Our faculty and staff modeled the importance of community through their charitable donations of $5418 to Relay for Life, The United Way of Aiken, and The Debbie Knight Fund. Staff members also contributed $1200 to an area elementary school for our Operation Feed a Kid Program bringing the total contribution to $5200 over the last three years to four area schools.

     We are fortunate to have the support of our School Improvement Council which is composed of parents, students, teachers, and community representatives. Stakeholder involvement has directly impacted our ability to make a difference in the lives of our students. Our goal is to build upon the many successes and to continue to provide the best possible educational experiences for our students.

It’s great to be a Mustang!
