Mead School District Reviews

The Mead school district has made me the person I am today. I have been given so many amazing opportunities, that have made me a strong leader for my school and the community. I am so glad to be apart of the Mead school district, but of course there are some problems like every school has. And one of those problems that needs to be changed to make all students feel like they belong is allowing kids in special ed to be apart of national Honors Society just because the difficulty level may be lower than other classes does not mean they do not work there hardest, and not allowing all students the chance to be apart of any club such as national Honors Society is segregating the school and community making students feal as if they do not belong.

As a senior in the Mead School District, it has given me many opportunities for higher education by offering college level courses with inspiring teachers. The serene environment encourages the well-rounded and in-depth courses offered. Additionally, Mead School District has given me the tools and resources to allow me to fulfill higher level studies while still enrolled in high school, along with providing opportunities for the future among diverse and happy peers.
The Mead School district works hard to create a welcoming environment for all students, however the schools are so large and crowded it is easy for students to fall between the cracks and be unnoticed. The school places high priorities on athletics and music, but it is very difficult to succeed in those categories due to the immense competition. Students who are not spectacular struggle to succeed and find a place. However, teachers are very thoughtful and genuinely care about their students. The level of education is second to none.
