For the most part, Mexico High School has given me a great experience. Most of the teachers and faculty are nice, we are getting turf on the field, we have new enrichment seminars, and our pep assemblies are very exciting. However, we do not support each other as a whole. Do not get me wrong, we do a great job of supporting the football team, softball, and things like that. It seems as though other sports, clubs, activities, and people always get lost in the mix. I would definitely love to see Mexico High School become one solid supportive group.

When I first started Mexico high school I thought it was going to be so difficult getting around a 3 story building and walking to other building for classes but I soon realized I was not alone. There was so many nice people willing to help me out. The last 3 years have been really good I participated in volleyball, yearbook, Spanish, many different clubs and I could’ve done a lot more. They have many things for everyone, interested in anything. Mexico high school is very supportive of anything their student body does and they are proud of everyone that goes there. It’s an amazing school to attend.
In Mexico High School every morning is a new begging". You either can go to the gym or the cafeteria. I chose to go to the cafeteria to do my homework", study, or just hang out with my friends. I believe Mexico can have potential, we have a lot of great teachers that try there best to help us out and look out for us. We have a good art department but I also think it can be better, many of us who take art seriously would like to have better paint ether than that there's always room for improvement.
