Midwest School started out as a one room school in 1912. This school included 32 children and one teacher. Many students rode horses to and from school. The horses were housed in a barn provided by the company. During this time, elementary students attended school for half of the day to accommodate the large number of students enrolled. The schools continued until the 1923-1924 school year when all grade levels became represented. That school year began with an enrollment of 90 and a teaching staff of three. It was also the first year they had a class graduate from the high school. At that time, the school was called Salt Creek High School. The following year, a new high school building was built at a cost of $50,000. This building was called the R. S. Ellison High School. By the 1924-25 school year, enrollment had risen to 175 with a teaching staff of seven. Other early additions to the facilities included a new elementary building in 1926, a gymnasium and a cafeteria during the 1927-28 school year. By this time, the school had instituted several departments and programs. These included football, orchestra, track, physical education, M Club, and home economics.
