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!
While attending school in the Mead School district I have felt I have had an average experience. From the academic stand point it was very good. They provide students the opportunity to learn and take classes such as AP courses in math, history, etc. Teachers for the majority are friendly, helpful and organized. Mead School District has an array of clubs and activities to get involved in. Diversity is very much so lacking and I hope to see the Mead School District become more diverse in the years to come. Arriving to school everyday I am able to feel safe.
