Mesquite Academy is one of the greatest high schools I ever been to by far. When I attended a regular high school with the regular bunch of students it was really hard to focus and get the proper education that I needed. Once I got to Mesquite Academy it was a much smaller school and contained a smaller amount of students in each class. Not only were the teachers very sweet and we always up for one-on-one help, they also never left you behind or made you feel uncomfortable in class. The principal was very understanding and was always concerned if you did not show up for school that day. Finally the councler was very helpful. She helped me set up my financial aid as well as helped me apply for college. After I finished all my classes for my senior year she continued to send me scholarship opportunities and job fairs. I would highly recommend Mesquite Academy for any high school student.

Mesquite Academy helped me achieve so much. I set a goal to graduate a whole year early and its now happening. The teachers are so helpful, kind and concerned. They literally do all they can to help you succeed and graduate. I really enjoyed this high school way better than my last one.
Everything is reasonable besides the strictness on dress code.
