Mead school district is pretty great; however, they seem to be lacking in diversity and the arts aren’t as big of a deal as sports. On the other hand, the academics here are amazing. I’ve felt very prepared for college because of them, and they have a wide variety classes that have enabled me to try out a wide variety of fields of study in order to find the best fit for me. Through taking the AP classes they offer there with amazing teachers, I’ve become an excellent note taker which will help me in college. The only downside to Mead school district is the lack of diversity in our area. Everyone seems to come from upper middle class white families, and everyone looks the same.

My experience at Mead has been nothing but amazing. The teachers are great the students are amazing and I genuinely enjoy going to school. We have the best spirit out there! Being in ASB this year I have been amazed at the amount of students dressing up and going to all the school events! It is really exciting and feels great to go to such a great school!
Mead teachers and administrators truly care about their students. They have a passion for education and it shows in everything they do! They have great school spirit and tons of academic options!
