Mansfield High School Reviews

This high school can be best described probably as a rough stone among diamonds. Neighboring towns have some of the best schools in the entire country, but this one falls way short. Case in point: torn-up, falling-apart English textbooks from the mid-'80s, moldy rusted lockers, absolutely no AC in 90% of the classrooms, and an administration culture of disparaging the student body. There are quite a few teachers here who are competent, genuinely care about students and their achievement, and respectful, a handful of whom I've had myself, and I will be forever grateful to them for inspiring me to aim high. The rest, though, will make you despise the subjects they're teaching. The one major bright spot this school has is in its sports program. The Hornets teams are the most funded out of any other program in the district, and they're of high quality. So if you're looking to get recruited into a Division 1 college, this is the school for you. Otherwise, look away.

Mansfield focuses way too much on typical education in the classroom and puts little to no effort into extracurricular activities. For example the only dance is prom where they squish hundreds of kids onto a dance floor fit for maybe 100, and do not let them leave the dance (???) I could go on and on about the shortcomings of out of classroom activities, not to mention the late and absence policy that consistently screws over its students. And maybe add a study hall? Or modernize the education so that kids aren’t behind of other students when they get to college and everything is online? Basically the school and administration care too much about old school education and as someone who recently graduated from this school, I would strongly recommend parents to consider alternate high school options so their student can get a better, more modernized education, along with a better high school experience in general.
As a Muslim female student, I have never felt opposed in my high school environment. I was never involved in bad situations with others because the students there are educated enough to know what to say and what not to say. The clubs are also very inclusive; everyone is very welcoming and encouraging, which makes the experience more enjoyable.
There are some things which I found a bit irritating. Some of the classes are a bit difficult either because of the complexity of the material or the way the material was taught. Also, the school could really use some new heating and bathroom renovations instead of fixing bleachers and windows that were fine to begin with.
All in all, my time at MHS was great. I learned many things that I hope will get me through college.
