Mexico High School was a decent school overall. There were some excellent teachers, but there were also poor teachers. The administration was good at taking care of children by disciplining them. I enjoyed my time at Mexico High School.

Most of the teachers that I have had are amazing and great at their job. However, there are some who aren’t the greatest and I had to switch out of their class because I felt that I was learning little if not nothing from them. I also feel that they could also go more in-depth with note taking strategies to better prepare students for college.
Mexico high school is a school of traditions and preparation for bright futures. At MHS teachers and faculty are understanding and caring. They teach students discipline as well as responsibility.
