Mineral Wells High School Reviews

Mineral Wells High School had so many caring teachers that really challenged their students. There was no such thing as an "easy A." Students really had to work for their grade. However, the English department was weak and didn't teach students the skills they need for college. The only other downfall for Mineral Wells is that they were focused more on their sports program than their academics program. This is coming from an athlete, too. Of course, the cafeteria food could use some work as well. That's at any school, though. On the brighter side, there are several levels of classes to take, like pre-AP, AP, and college level. There are also multiple career based classes and extracurricular activities to be apart of. Overall, the staff, administration, and activities offered at Mineral Wells High School make it well worth attending.

The teachers I've experienced have good intentions, but compared to my old school, I'm not so sure it stacks up. The people are friendly, but some of them don't know how to keep an attitude to themselves.
I have been a student at Mineral Wells High School for three and a half years now and I have had a great experience here so far. I believe that being in an organization myself, I have seen high school in a different way than some students. When I first arrived I was a little nervous but the staff was very welcoming and helpful to every student and visitor. If there is ever an issue they are quick to resolve it any way that they can. A lot of the teachers get involved in events such as pep rallies and when there is a sports event they help with concession stands or they just come to show support for their students and that is a great thing to see. The teachers also provide as much help as they can when a student's grade is falling or they just do not understand the lesson.
