This is my first year at Mansfield (going in as a sophomore) and it's going well. The lunch menus I've seen so far looks more appetizing than my old school, but people should really regulate the lunch lines since freshmen usually go in groups to cut them. I'm also not fond of wearing an ID every day or paying $5 for an ID - even if it's your first one. The teachers, however, are absolutely pleasant! Not a lot of diversity since there's mostly Caucasians, African Americans, and Hispanics here - Asians are pretty rare, contrary to my old school. The bell schedules are always the same, which is kind of boring and I find it redundant to take CBAs.

Having grown up in the Mansfield Independent School District I am somewhat oblivious to the problems, mostly ones facing Mansfield High School. I was ignorant to the lack of diversity facing the school. I do think the teachers play a large part in the problem and don’t do enough to encourage diversity. However, the head principal, has done a lot to engage with all students and become involved with extracurricular activities. I’m biased but I do think the Caucasian students at the school get a bad rap due to the actions of certain white students. Although the school may be “notorious for rich white kids” I have not seen a large lack of diversity in the income of students families. The zone for the high school covers such a large area there is a wide spread of incomes, but the focus is on the rich white students. Mansfield High Schools teachers, administration, and students, can all do a better job of encouraging diversity and culture without having to belittle other students.
From Freshman to Senior, I experienced many interesting things with this school system. In correlation to academics it prides itself very very highly on AP classes and tests. They are more concerned with teaching to the test rather than if a student truly understands the material. There is also a very distinctive racial barrier within the system. You can count on your hand the amount of black teachers at Mansfield. There is also lack of support from some admin for ethic groups. However, the main principal shows constant support for every organization and stays involved. Most of the issues stem from the teachers and student body. However, it is not all melancholy; I've had the most amazing teachers like: Mrs. Gent, Dr. Harmon, Ms. Richards, Coach Calderon, Mrs. Stevenson ,etc.. They have shaped my life and allowed me to grow and prosper as a student and for that I will forever be thankful for them.
