  History

Midland High School’s history goes back to the establishment of Midland County back in 1885. It was the first school in Midland County. The one room school house was for all grades. Sixty-four students attended the first school in Midland County. In 1893, a two story brick schoolhouse was built and the top floor was for the secondary students. In 1907, Midland Independent School District was established. The first building to be officially named Midland High School was built in 1926 on the site of what is now Fasken Center, at 600 Texas Street. After 23 years in the Texas Street location, in 1949 Midland High School moved to its present location at 906 West Illinois. The land which Midland High was based on was donated by the Cowdens. The legendary bulldog mascot was chosen for Midland High in 1925 and in 1929 purple and gold were chosen for the school colors.

  Traditions

CATOICO, Midland High School's equivalent of prom, was first established in 1929 and stands for Midland’s three major commodities: CAttle, OIl, and COtton. CATOICO - pronounced commonly as cuh TOY cuh - is one the oldest traditions in the state of Texas. The first CATOICO Queen was Martha Louise Nobles Black. Originally, the title went to the girl who was the most successful yearbook fundraiser. Since 1939, the CATOICO court has been chosen by the student body. The first CATOICO coronation activities were in 1936.[2]

By the cafeteria, in what is known as the “Bulldog Room”, you will find gold railing that surrounds a old mosaic of a bulldog. Underneath the mosaic a bulldog lays to rest. According to many tales, the bulldog was killed by vicious Midland Lee Rebels who hung a bulldog from a tree. Seeing as the bulldog suffered a horrible death, he was honored by being placed in a spot where he will always be remembered by past and present Bulldogs.[2]

Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
