Mineola High School Reviews
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.
Teachers are, for the most part, great. The administration, however, doesnt listen to us and doesnt care about us. They dont handle issues, such as bullying, the way they say they will. Furthermore, they put in new doors in for "safety" yet someone who threatened to shoot up the school graduated in 2019 after he made this threat in 9th grade. I would not reccomend this school to anyone. The ONLY saving grace are the teachers, who are generally awesome.
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.
