I been in the Mexico school district since I started school. I like the facility at the schools I been to. I have also played sports for the school since I could and our school district and community show a lot of support. There are a lot of things that could be changed but there are a few major things that need to be changed. One thing I think needs to change is the collage preparation and they also need to change the amount the teacher care about seeing all the kids succeed.

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.
