Mercedes Independent School District Reviews
I would like to see a safer school environment. The security guards don't really help monitor the students when administrators aren't around, they just let the students wander the halls. Better meals should also be served; many students have complained about the school food making their stomachs hurt. Counselors should be better trained and should understand and get to know the students more while also giving them space to breathe. Teachers should also stick to teaching and not try to become the students friend like some teachers have.
My experience in the school district was quite normal but there is a lot of favoritism such in sports extracurricular activities and it was all on who you know. As well the things I would like to change is everyone deserves a shot it's not on who's your parent is it's not on how good you think you are just because you have connections with in the school but just to give a fair shot to everyone who wants to play in sports being clubs. And it would also be helpful to have college readiness yes or the classes that but it doesn't help you at all they don't help you on how to be ready for college what to expect the test they should be more on top of SATs and on safety
I liked the student to teacher ratio and the collaboration with one another. Everyone is always offering a helping hand, and the pride within the school makes it a whole lot better. The teachers fulfill their duties with so much passion and make sure you understand every lesson.
