Lead, Learn, Love -- Mifflin!
Welcome to Mifflin Elementary, one of three Madison elementary schools where leaders abound! At Mifflin Elementary, we seek to empower our students with leadership opportunities so that each one may discover his or her inner genius. Students are also enjoying our STEM program Project Lead the Way where we tap into students’ exploratory nature to engage in hands-on activities in the areas of computer science, engineering, and biomedical science to become better critical thinkers and collaborators. Mifflin is proud to be named a Project Lead the Way Distinguished School through our Launch program.
Mifflin Elementary is humbled to be named a National ESEA Distinguished School in the category of achievement. As only one of two schools in the state and less than 100 in the entire nation, Mifflin earned this honor through the hard work and dedication of students, staff, and parents that holds students to a high standard of learning. The Ohio Department of Education chose Mifflin through a vetting process that showcased how Mifflin strives for achievement and the passion that every stakeholder has in ensuring that our students are able to feel and celebrate success.

to see just what this honor means and how we intend to continue our success in future years!
Mifflin Elementary has also been awarded the Purple Star distinction from the Ohio Department of Education! This honor recognizes the effort and supports afforded to military students and their families throughout the school year, creating an environment that empowers them to be both academically and social-emotionally successful both at school and at home. In order to be considered for Purple Star status, a school must minimally have a staff point of contact for military families, offer professional development for this contact, and have a dedicated portion of a webpage to providing resources to our military stakeholders. Furthermore, we must show evidence of military connections within our community; this achievement was earned through a community project with the 179th Airlift Wing, a Veterans Day musical, Earth Day garden creation with support from the 179th, a building-themed month honoring our servicemen and servicewomen, and more. Congratulations to the students, staff, and families of the Mifflin community! We are Purple Star proud!
