School Reviews

5.0  5/17/2016
This school has changed my son's life! He was in PAUSD K-8 and hated school. I was frustrated as a parent because even though he had an IEP, he was not getting the help he needed. Now, becasue of Mid-Pen, he is THRIVING. I can not say enough about this school where every student is known and every student is cared for. If you want your child to have a great education in a true school COMMUNITY, Mid-Pen is the place!
