Having an experience at Mendota High School as an student, athlete, band member and FFA member was an experience that I would never forget. From my freshman to currently my senior year, I got to experience Friday Night Lights (football games) with our performing or marching band, marching band competitions, showing farm animals as an ffa member at a fair, happily helping out our community and many more. This school provided us, students to give the huge opportunity to take college courses and guide us to our future lives or careers. I’m one of those students who is currently taking college courses and everyday I'm grateful for this opportunity!

I enjoy the school at Mendota High School due to Mendota being a small town and the population being 11,418. Essentially everyone knows each other, It's convenient because there are no forms of diversity [hispanics only] and is a sanctuary town for immigration. At my school the teachers are well informed in what they know. The school itself is 99% hispanic and I appreciate the clubs that are offered. The facilities are semi-new and well maintained.
What I did like was how wide open the school was and how friendly the teachers were. The teachers would interact with us, the students, as if we were their friends. But, once it came to it, the teachers would work us off with homework. One thing that could be improved is the organization. Some students don't know where a certain building is and they cut in line during lunch whenever no teacher is looking.
