The Midland School serves students in pre-kindergarten through eighth grade. High school students attend nearby Hackensack High School as part of a sending/receiving relationship with that district.

On March 7, 1871, the township of Midland was established and consisted of two areas. The Rochelle Park area was more urban, while the Paramus section was more farmland. In 1922, the proposition of separating Midland township was placed before the people in a referendum, and Paramus became a separate municipality. Midland Township, once encompassing the largest part of Bergen County, was reduced to an area of 1.1 square miles, the present size of what is known as Rochelle Park. Due to confusion in names between Midland Township and Midland Park, it was decided to change the name which became "Rochelle Park".
