On Overall Experience: My overall experience at Mesa High was very compelling. This was the first school I had been to that actually wanted to see me succeed in regards to my high school education. The teachers and guidance counselors worked with me every step of the way. I would definitely choose this school if I had to do it all over again. I highly recommend this school to other fellow students who are serious about graduating high school! I believe the diversity of this teaching institution is what makes this school so unique! It's wonderful when different cultures can work together to achieve the same thing!

On Academics: The academics that are offered by this school are both interesting and meaningful as well. There are various courses that are offered other than the traditional core credits, such as "personal development" or "personal finance" classes. Mesa High's curriculum relates to students in today's generation and helps prepare them for post-high school education. The workload is somewhat heavy, but if you focus solely on school it shouldn't be a problem.

On Health & Safety: Mesa High does contain health and safety policies. The school does offer special security measures such as cameras and security patrol. In addition, there is generally a Mesa police officer on campus every day to ensure the safety of students as well. The school also offers health programs and resources to students who are either pregnant or is already a mother/father.

On Resources & Facilities: The school offers various resources and school facilities that are available to students. The overall condition of the school is average for its age, considering it was built in 1898. However, I believe improvements and adjustments might make the school's overall appearance more appealing to the eye. Mesa High has the best guidance counselors you can find, in my opinion. The guidance counselors also offer college prep resources which can help students prepare for college. For example, the guidance counselor can assist you in searching for scholarships or even applying for colleges. In addition, the school also offers limited tutoring for students who need assistance with their academics.

On Administration & Policies: The school's administration is very well put together. The guidance counselors offer the best of support you could possibly get in regards to education. I had a guidance counselor there who guided me every step of my high school journey and she ensured to keep me on track for graduation. The office staff, on the other hand, is "okay". Sometimes the coordination of the office staff seems random, which often confuses students on where they are supposed to go. The school has very firm policies, especially in regards to dress code. The school doesn't tolerate any type of outfits or clothing that might come off as suggestive to other students. Bullying is another policy that is taken seriously at Mesa High, but it isn't much of a problem at this school.
