A Message to 8th grade students and their parents from ECHS@MC:Where will you be attending high school next year? Do you know that there is a high school in town where students receive both a high school diploma from MISD and an associate's degree (2 year degree) from Midland College? ECHS@MC opened in the fall of 2009 due to a partnership between Midland Independent School District and Midland College. The high school is located on the Midland College Campus. Students complete a rigorous academic program that includes both high school and college courses. At the same time, students are provided a framework of support with tutoring and mentoring that builds success.
