I could not have asked for a better education, I feel very well prepared for college next year! All of my teachers are honestly dedicated to making sure that I understand all of the material they teach. I have taken amazing courses at mead high school. The only thing that I think needs improving is how the students treat each other

The Mead School District is a very highly renowned school district in Spokane and across the state. Many friends of mine from Mt. Spokane have said that their parents moved to the area simply because of these schools. I'd say that the district has usual issues because there are some 'less than favorable' teachers and some disagreeable policies, but overall the quality of academics, athletics, and the school environment is exemplary. Test scores notably are where many parents see a big difference between Mead and other school districts.
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.
