Throughout those four years in high-school, I experienced an insurmountable amount of school-spirit. Teachers and other staff always encouraged students to participate in events of all-types, so every event was successful and lots of fun! Due to the construction, my class will not able to see the building completed, but we didn't let that stop us from having our best senior year!

I will be a senior this upcoming school year at Mayde Creek, and I have really enjoyed my experience so far. I love the diversity at my school, as I get to meet all kinds of people and explore my interests through various clubs and organizations. I have never had significant issues with my teachers, and I have even developed bonds with some of them. I feel that many of the things I have learned, even apart from academics, are very useful to me and will benefit my future. I am extremely impressed with the new principal at my school; he has improved so many aspects of Mayde Creek in just his first year! The people who both work at and attend my school are very friendly and, understanding, and supportive- and I'm sure many others would agree.
In the school district of Katy ISD, Mayde Creek High School has a reputation of being uncivilized and unsophisticated. It is often referred to as the "ghetto" and "poor" campus, as we freely open our doors to immigrants, low income students, and the homeless. Although students from other schools consider it embarrassing to attend Mayde Creek, I consider myself honored to be part of such a diverse community. While other schools may be separated by cliques or academic achievement, Mayde Creek integrates us students and promotes unity throughout the school. The staff at Mayde Creek, who see themselves as mentors who truly care for their craft and their students, go above and beyond to ensure that each student succeeds. Mayde Creek offers an abundance of clubs and committees suited for such a diverse school, such as the Muslim Student Association, Asian Committee, Spanish Club, American Sign Language Club, and the Christian Youth Society. Despite our differences we proudly stand united.
