Mead High School Reviews

I believe that learning is the most essential part of life and that it should be something that people should enjoy so that they can invest themselves more in it. Mead had some classes that handled that well, such as the Integrated and AP Gov class, but some classes just lacked the passion. Tests are proven to be beneficial by helping the student be able to memorize facts better, but too many are just pointless and draining for the student. Another problem is that there is too much of a push to take AP classes. While some people are able to take them without a problem, others can't handle it and it just tanks down their GPA and gives them extra stress. Students should be able to decide on what classes to take, while their counselors give advice rather than trying to push things onto them. Overall it's not a bad school and I believe the staff is fairly great, but it could change the ways it teaches and how things are handled.

The parents really aren't the problem most of the time- it's the administration and the relationship they have together. Our administration keeps on making bad changes that make their life easier because they want to be lazy and have admitted that. For example, no schedual changes and no exceptions from now on. Also, only standard and AP classes, no in betweens. I need that in between class! So of course the parents retaliate, and then they get mad at the whole staff, rightly so. This puts a strain on the relationships between the staff and the parents. What we really need is an administration that cares more about doing their jobs.
Mead High School is a rural small town school in the town of Mead Colorado. While the school is small, it is filled with a culturally diverse student body and staff. As a student who has attended Mead for four years, I can say I believe my high school experience has been incredible. Mead has allowed me to venture and explore subjects and interests while staying on track. I have learned from several perspectives and been given an opportunity to voice my ideas and interact with peers. The teachers carry a natural grace and compassion for their students. The teachers know all the kids and are available at all times to improve their school experience in every way. The camaraderie of a small school allows it to feel like a family in which I was able to untrue and grow as I prepare for college.
