Midway High School has launched a customized character education program combining elements from national programs such as Choose Love, Dude Be Nice, and Rachel's Challenge.

The MID_WAY focuses on mutual respect for peers, acknowledging that opinions can differ but it does not need to cause strife and conflict, and working towards de-polarization.

The MID_WAY includes student pledges to respect each other, ongoing lessons, reminders, and exercises to put respectful behavior into practice, and even activities for parents and the community to practice and model positive behavior as well.
