Mead Senior High School is a place that really makes you feel like you belong. Mead cares about its student body. I am very happy with how the teachers and staff are at Mead. The classes there are very diverse. At Mead Senior High School, students have the opportunity to take Advanced Placement classes which allow students to get college credit. Students can also be enrolled into the running start program where they can go to college and take college courses. Students earn both high school and college credits, allowing them to take college courses without having to pay for the tuition.

After three different time schedules and two different principals, I can say I had a rather diverse experience over the four years I attended Mead high school. Though many changes were made, I am grateful for the time I had at Mead; I am a better student and person because of it. The administration loves the student body, the teachers care deeply about the education they provide, and the students are engaged with the community. There is not a class I can remember disliking, and the content is not the cause. The teaching staff at Mead is simply top-notch. After finishing my first year in college, I realize how prepared I was to enter higher education.
Mead High School provided all resources necessary to make a student feel involved in the academic community and welcomed anyone without discrimination of religion, ethnicity, orientation or intelligence. The school had excellent staff, well maintained facilities and overall friendly and smart students. I wouldn't change much about Mead other than increasing college readiness for those wishing to chase higher education.
