I give an excellent rating due to 2 children graduating from this school and moving on to bigger things because of the influences

We have had three kids attend MHS. Two are currently at Universities and doing very well after taking all AP courses at Mesquite High. They were able to take dual credit classes for free at Eastfield while in high school. Those courses, plus the AP exams, allowed our child to graduate from Baylor University in three years. Our son makes $10/hour tutoring other students through the school. We love MHS!

Mesquite HS is the best school. We have devoted teachers and administrators and we treat each other as family.

I thank God for good teachers. There are many that my children have had that care enough to monitor their grades in all their classes so as to care for the child as a whole and not just what grades they make in their class alone. The experience you have at this school is very much dependent on how much involvement the parent is willing to exhibit. High school is not a time to totally stop being involved in your child's education. If anything, they need you more than ever. Stay involved. My kids had no problems with low quality education or mixing with the wrong crowd.

If you have a kid who wants to be prepared for college after high school, this is not the place to send your child. While attending a high ranking state college, I noticed that I was way behind all of my peers. The AP program at this school is a complete joke compared to other schools. Just because a school offers "AP" doesn't mean they actually have "AP" classes. Make sure to look for passing rates for these tests. Go to US NEWS HIGH SCHOOL RANKINGS to see college readiness indicators. If you live in the district for this school, do yourself a favor and move somewhere else.
