Midwest School offers a half-day preschool, a full-day kindergarten, and first through twelfth grades. The small population allows for a high level of teacher-student interaction. Individual student needs are accommodated through a Response to Intervention tiered approach for struggling readers, one on one and small group tutoring in math, placement in reading and math groups based on skill level, and a refocus room called The Pump House to help students learn appropriate behaviors and social skills. Our elementary curriculum includes Houghton Mifflin Reading, My Math, FOSS science kits, and a variety of supplemental materials to enhance these programs.

Midwest offers all classes necessary to meet high school graduation and Hathaway Scholarship requirements. Students can also take advantage of advanced courses through distance learning and BOCES classes for dual credit opportunities. All secondary students meet with a mentor group daily. Activities include academic goal setting, monitoring grades and attendance, celebrating progress, and building relationships with peers.
