The MILE (Midlothian Innovative Learning Experience) is a state-of-the-art educational facility that provides flexible learning spaces that reflect current industry and workplace environments. The MILE houses five career and technical education pathways: culinary arts, cybersecurity, aerospace engineering, civil engineering and entrepreneurship. Programs at this building give students an opportunity to utilize industry-standard equipment and professional practices in a career path which the student has interest. Learning and coursework at The MILE is provided by a highly qualified, passionate teaching staff enhanced by regular mentoring and curriculum support from professionals in the correlating industries.
These learning spaces replicate that of the real world and will compliment a student’s learning experience provided at their home campus, Midlothian High School or Heritage High School. Culinary arts students work in an industrial kitchen operating a bistro that is open to the public. Cybersecurity students are in a fully functional lab with routers and switches working to prevent hacking and practicing technical skills in securing data. Aerospace and civil engineering students have access to a student-centered maker space filled with both high-tech and common materials and tools. Our entrepreneurship students thrive in the INCubatoredu curriculum where they work to develop solutions to products and services missing from our community, create a business plan and pitch their product to a Board of Investors, Shark Tank-style! MISD is proud to enhance our high school students' education with personalized learning experiences to prepare them for the jobs of the future.
