At Mendota High School, the teachers are very helpful and understanding. They are very motivating and have helped me tremendously, weather it be to proof read my essays for my college courses, or to help me understand the lesson on another level. My counselor has helped me with everything going on in my life and has helped me slowly learn to balance everything. The environment itself is very typical yet spacious for all the different group of kids. Personally, I very much dislike the food. I, myself, don't eat red meat or eggs, so eating at school is very complicated. 4 out of 5 breakfasts consist of eggs or sausage. I end up eating dry cereal or at times not at all. The lunch is a 50/50. On a good day, we are eating chicken nuggets and on a bad day, not even the snack bar has turkey sandwiches. This definitely adds unwanted and unnecessary stress to myself. Besides that, I am very happy at my school, and I've enjoyed my experience so far!

I love the tight knit community and programs that are offered. There are so many opportunities to take advantage of and the counseling department is phenomenal! Some things like the dress code are a little constricting in my opinion, but overall great!
I've had many good memories here. The campus is not the best but it's also not the worst as many people might think.Although the clubs and sports are somewhat limited, there is always something to do at this school. Not only that, but the programs and clubs always expand with the passing years. For example, this year we got a brand new drama club and a brand new Russian class.So although the school is small compared to the ones in bigger cities, I still had a very positive experience over the past 4 years.
