Midland Elementary was constructed on farmland that had been used to grow onions and corn. The student population in Roy was growing rapidly prior to construction of the school. To accommodate this growth, students attended split sessions at Country View Elementary until Midland Elementary was completed in 1985. The original building had twenty-six full size classrooms along with a multipurpose room complete with a stage, and an open library. Nearly ten years later the library was enclosed and an additional eight classrooms were built on the north end of the existing building.
There are currently seven hundred students enrolled at Midland served by twenty-nine and a half teachers. Fifteen support staff including classroom aides, secretaries, custodians and cooks also work at Midland Elementary.
