Mead High School Reviews

The time I have spent at Mead has been a good experience. I’ve had multiple teachers who have impacted my life and overall learning experience. For the most part, the school is very accepting of each other and is a community that cares for one another. Not only have my teachers cared about their students academically, but they pour into them personally as well. The one flaw Mead has is that some of their counselors don’t truly listen to the concerns of the student body, instead it seems as if what they push on the students is more to benefit them than us. This seems to be a pattern in some of the admin as well, however this did not drastically effect my time at Mead. I would recommend this school to anyone, with a positive mindset and a willingness to learn, Mead can become a great high school experience for anyone.

Mead High School is great! From the academics, to the diversity, the inclusion, to the sports everything is top-notch and focused on preparing students for the next level.
I do not like the change to moving to iPads instead of text books. Many children do not have the self-control to use the technology to focus on school work and then use the device to play. And, parents cannot remove this distraction from the children when it is time to focus on school work. Also, many children learn better actually touching the paper and writing on paper or flipping pages. Making children do math on a small screen, using their finger to write on a blown up image of the screen is ridiculous.

Also the focus on taking AP classes, to the detriment of the child's grade point average is also wrong. The school is too focused on showing how many children are taking AP classes than on teaching the children. Add to that, many teachers are now having the children watch videos on their iPad instead of teaching the class.
