Greetings and Welcome to Midway Alternative High School
and The Youth Center of the High Plains
We invite you to look over our web site and explore the programs of C.I.S.D.'s alternative school. There are two programs housed on the Midway campus. The Midway program is a school of choice and consists of alternative educational classes. The D.A.E.P. program consists of students placed for severe or persistent violation of the student code of conduct.
Midway is a school of choice.  It provides an opportunity for students to complete required course work necessary for high school graduation.  Students submit a completed application for consideration of admittance.  Enrollment is relatively small and the number of applicants could exceed the number of available spaces.  Midway is an extension of CISD's two other high schools.  Once students complete all graduation requirements, their records are sent back to their home campuse from which they will receive their diploma.  Graduating seniors have the right to return to thier home campus to take part in all graduation activities. Beginning in the 2016-2017 school year, students will graduate from Midway Alternative High School complete with its own graduation ceremony.

We are currently taking applications for the 2016-2017 school year.  To be considered for Midway, you must meet the following requirments:

  • Be classified a junior or senior in the 2015-2016 school year
  • Currently attend either Canyon HS or Randall HS
  • Meet at least one at-risk indicator.

Discipline Alternative Education Program (D.A.E.P.) classes are also located on the Midway campus. Dress code for D.A.E.P. students will be in effect beginning the first day of classes. See the DAEP tab for the dress code guidelines and procedures.
