I will be graduating in May of this year. Overall, Mena High School is just an average school. There's not much to it. However, the best part of this average school is the teachers. They're always willing to help any students that doubt themselves. Sure, there are some that are don't, but for the most part, the teachers treat you like you are their own child. They respect the students' opinions and listen to our suggestions. They listen to us during our stressful times and help out whenever they can. The bonds formed between the teachers and the students are a close one, almost like family. There have been unfortunate occurrences in the past 4 years that I've gone here, but the teachers and students help each other in staying strong during those times. Leaving this school, I will leave behind some of the best relationships I've been a part of. I will miss the teachers of Mena High School very much.

I loved high school! The only problem was that, when it came to playing sports, it all mattered on your last name. That is one thing I would like to see changed about Mena High School. Where playing on a team depended on your skill level and not your last name. The teachers were great, always helped when you needed it and always gave you a chance.
In the four years that I have gone to Mena High School, I would have to say the experience something wonderful. Spending the time that I had here has prepared me for what future that I wish to be involved with and has made an attempt to prepare me for life after graduation. The culture on campus is far from average, it exceeds that. The facilities have granted students several opportunities for student led activities as well as administration led events and guest speakers. The staff superb, taking the time to meet with students one on one when they struggle in whatever subjects that they teach.
