I love attending Mena Public Schools! It's a loving environment, where everyone is friendly and willing to lend a helping hand. The teachers and administration strive to better the students and truly love their jobs. The school is very active with numerous clubs and sports year-round. It has been a wonderful place to spend four amazing years of my life. I can truly say they have helped prepare me for college in ways no other school can compare to. Mena Public Schools will always hold a special place in my heart.

It is very nice here. I wish that or the food was better though. It seens that every one here is very nice. I wish that some of the reachers were nicer (expesally Mrs. Hansard.) The nurse needs to give kids things other than tums. If you have a headache she gives you a tum. If you get hit in the face, she gives you a tum. I mean really? Its like all that she has! Other wise, I think thatmen's middle school is a very nice place.
The Mena School District is a close knit and high achieving district, with 3 of the 4 schools all on one campus. Classroom sizes are small to allow one on one teaching for a better learning experience. Sports programs are offered as young as third grade, and the beginning band program starts in sixth grade. All high school coaches are knowledgeable in their sport, and the volleyball and softball teams have received a state title and championship many times. The Mena Bearcat Marching Band has won many awards and has won the sweepstakes title many times. The Mena High School District is one that definitely stands out. Police officers are on every campus to provide safety to the students and faculty. With the JAG and Orientation to Teaching programs, high school students are able to regularly visit the middle and elementary schools for tutoring and other encouragements. All campuses work together to make a better learning experience for everyone.
