Additional Information: 

Midpark High School in Middleburg Heights, Ohio closed in 2013 after being open for fifty-one years. Decreased enrollment at Midpark High School led to the school being merged with their rival, Berea High School. The newly combined schools were renamed Berea-Midpark High School. Although the high schools were merged and the high school students left, the building was still used. The building became the Middleburg Heights Junior High School.  Many alumni came on the last day of school before the High School closed to reminisce and visit one last time.

The school colors were brown and orange, and the meteor was the school mascot. The school had a football team, female volleyball team, wrestling team, and swim team.
