There is a great student atmosphere in Mineola with hardwork, a diverse amount of different educational resources and much more! From exciting events such as homecoming, reggie carter night, the lifeskills class showcase, concerts and more it is a great community to be a part of. The one aspect of Mineola that is not as proficient is the administraition discluding the principal.

Mineola High School has a few good teachers, but in many classes, students have to teach themselves because the teaching is so poor. The guidance department is run poorly. There is ethnic diversity here, with many Portuguese, Hispanic, and Asian students, but there are few black students. There is a major problem with drugs on the school campus, and the school has recently implemented a new policy that requires students to use their ID cards to enter the restrooms because of an excess of students vaping in the restrooms. Before the policy was enacted, a student rarely could enter a restroom without having to walk through a group of students vaping. There is still the occasional student vaping in the restroom, but the problem has been lessened greatly with the new ID card policy.
It was a small school so everyone kind of knew each other and the school was ahead in technology and the whole STEM thing. The combination of these two things makes mineola, honestly a pretty good school district. It’s a public school district, so everything they offer there like 3D printing, cnc machinery, and other high tech machinery is all free for the students to use.
