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.
Review Mead School District
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.
I like this district and ecspecially one school in particular: Five Mile Prairie School. I've been here for four years and it's been a great experience! Much better than normal high school.
