Midlothian Independent School District is a public school district based in Midlothian, Texas (USA).

In addition to Midlothian, the district serves parts of Cedar Hill, Mansfield, Grand Prairie, Ovilla, and Venus as well as rural areas in northwestern Ellis County.

Controversial TEA Rating[edit]

In 2009, the district received a controversial "academically unacceptable" rating by the Texas Education Agency, due to 11 of its 33 "disadvantaged" seniors dropping out of the class of 2008. The rating was given despite the fact that all 6 elementary schools were awarded the highest rating (exemplary), along with 1 Middle school being given the second highest rating (recognized) and the other middle school receiving an academically acceptable rating.[1]

School board officials and many residents oppose the unacceptable rating received from the TEA, and the TEA rating has been appealed.[2] The school district was measured as being exemplary in 22 of 25 academic measurements.
