Mercedes High School is a supportive, motivating campus that inspires their students to go above and beyond in all that they do. They encourage their students to be active and participate within their community and other organizations.
Mercedes High School is a place where everybody knows everybody, and that is what I like about it. The principal is very interactive with all the student and knows almost everybody name by name, and that is something not all districts are capable of. Although we are not the most wealthy school in Texas, the administration and coaching staff always does whatever they can in order for us to enjoy our time at Mercedes High, they care about us students for who we are, not just for our studies, and that is what makes MHS special.
My expierence at Mercedes High School is amazing. The classes they have to offer really give many students the opportunity to start their career path. I myself took medical classes and now i am CPR, CPT and CNA certified, all to the thanks of Misd. I work as a CNA in a nursing home and will futher my career to becoming the RN i was born to be. The teachers/staff encourage all students to fullfill their dreams and help them along their way. Mercedes High School is the place to be, and i myself will be happy to graduate as their class of 2020.
