DANA ELLIS - Junior High Principal

Welcome to Midland Christian Junior High! I have been blessed to be a part of Midland Christian almost my entire life. I attended and graduated from MCS in 1998 and went on to receive my Bachelors from Texas Tech University and my Masters in Education Leadership from The University of Texas of the Permian Basin. I have taught 4th grade at MCS for four years prior to becoming the junior high principal. I am blessed with an amazing family. My husband Mark and I have been married for many years. We have four beautiful children, Nick, Ben, Will and Brooke all of which attend Midland Christian as well. I am so excited for the school year ahead and look forward to spending my year with the junior high students.


Students in Grades Seven and Eight are at a very critical time of transition - emotionally, intellectually and physically. The Junior High program is sensitive to the unique learning needs of our students as they make this transition.

Midland Christian Junior High offers a comprehensive high school preparation program for Seventh and Eighth Grade Students in a Christian environment. The curriculum is determined by standards 

established by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and enhanced by other offerings such as Computer Science, Speech, Study Skills, Spanish and Art. Special opportunities for leadership in student government and participation in the forensic competition provide added academic incentives.
The academic emphasis is rooted in basic skills like Reading, Math, Science and History. Algebra I and Spanish I are available to accelerated students who wish to gain high school credit during their Junior High years.

Junior High students at MCS are encouraged to learn through stimulating academic experiences and a variety of out-of-classroom activities. This is accomplished in a Christian environment with daily non-denominational Chapel Assemblies and Bible classes, contributing to the growth of the whole Student.
