Mexico School District Reviews

I loved my experience at Mexico High School. It was dramatic a lot of the time like most schools, but I met friends there that I will have for a lifetime. Sports at Mexico High School are fairly good too. Their Wrestling Team is probably the best sport they have and Football isn't far behind. I played football at Mexico High School all four years, and I wouldn't trade that experience for anything. Academically, Mexico High School is pretty good I'd say. The Social Studies department is extremely good, same goes for technology, and the English department. There were a few things about Physical Education that made me little upset. We weren't allowed to play two hand touch football outside. Besides that it was a great school.

The school district has some really amazing and quality teachers, while others lack enough knowledge to truly teach their subject which is saddening. My experience was pretty mediocre. The funding doesn’t always go to the right places, but the school is always putting in effort somewhere.
At Mexico School District I would say most teachers don't care about you or how you are doing in school. They make sure to punish you if you don't have good attendance (even if you have had doctor appointments) if you get below a 90% you don't get to go to any school activities. The one thing I can say is good about our School District is the sports they let us play and how they help some get a connection with colleges.
