West St. Paul-Mendota Heights-Eagan Area School District No. 197 Reviews

Overall the school was pretty good, I liked the way class was given and they had a pretty good sport. The problem was there were couple of teachers that were rasist and didn't care about the black students at all. Personally I would recommend the school for American students and internationals if they are willing to sacrifice some things and get over it.

I enjoy coming to this district. I attend Henry Sibley, and they have challenging courses that I know will help me prepare better for college/university. They don't have much diversity but have been gaining more diversity in the district.
I like the West St. Paul- Mendota Heights- Eagan Area School District No. 197. I have been a student in the district since I was in 2nd grade. I went to Garlough, Heritage, and I am currently a Junior at Henry Sibley High School. I love the academics, the teachers are friendly, all the students are so bright and outgoing. I find that there is a lot of resources. One thing I would love as a change would be the food, but every student will say that.
