The Midfield City Schools System is an urban district located in Midfield, Alabama. The City of Midfield has a population of 5,635 according to the 2010 US Census. It is described as the “Convenient City” because of its closeness to major Alabama cities such as Bessemer, Fairfield and Birmingham.

Academically, the school system has many programs in place to ensure that our students are successful after their high school years. All three of the schools participate in the AMSTI program which is designed to improve math and science for the students in grades K-12. Additionally, Midfield City Schools has a strong enrichment program, which ends each academic year with a “Broadway” style play. This year’s feature is “Cinderella”. Other programs that are offered are High Hopes Tutoring and Dropout Prevention.
During the 2012-2013 school year, Midfield City Schools added two programs to their Career Technical Education offerings.
