I love the opportunities students get to have through our programs in the community. Whether it be through service projects or volunteering there’s always ways for us, the student body, to help when we can! I’d like the see the students get more involved in clubs and activities. Personally, I enjoy partaking in the multiple activities our school has to offer and I wish my peers would get involved.

For the most part, my experience at Mineral Wells HighSchool was pretty good. The teachers for my core classes were very involved in my education and wanted to push me to do my best. However, when it came to CTE teacher they were hired based on who they knew, not their ability. A few (not all) also seemed to be able to do whatever they pleased without consequences.
It's alright. Not the best nor the worst high school. Overall it's a typical, mediocre education. The community is great though.
