  • oh..my..god. Mesa isn't the best school, but its a lot of fun. Mr.Glover, Mrs.Lunnon, Coach Leeds, awesome... The school is pretty peachy, especially if you're in AVID, and I'm happy that its the last year standing. THEY'RE SHUTTING IT DOWN!!! 7th was okay, hopefully eight grade is better and we make it the best last year Mesahas ever had!

  • One of the worst schools in the district. My son had to be home schooled because of their insufficiency to teach the children. I give it a zero.

  • THIS IS THE 3RD YEAR I HAVE KIDS AT MESA. I HAVE NEVER BEEN IMPRESSED WITH THE WAY THE SCHOOL RUNS. MOST, NOT ALL, OF THE TEACHERS ARE GREAT. I FEEL FOR THEM HAVING TO TEACH AT MESA. I ALSO PERSONALLY KNOW A COUPLE OF THE TEACHERS. MRS. JAMES IS FANTASTIC, MR. LUKE, WHO IS GONE, WAS FANTASTIC. I KNOW SCHOOLS CANNOT CONTROL THE TYPE OF KIDS THAT COME IN NOR THEIR PARENTS, BUT THERE IS NOT ENOUGH STRICT DISCIPLINE. TEACHERS ARE ALWAYS DOING THE MAJORITY OF DISCIPLINE. I TRIED TO FIND A BETTER JR. HIGH, BUT I COULD NOT AND I CANNOT AFFORD PRIVATE, SO I STAY VERY MUCH INVOLVED.
