  • My daughter attended K - 1st here and I really liked the school. The facilty is very friendly and willing to listen to suggestion. Her first grade teacher did a great job of challanging her and helping her grow.

  • My 2 oldest children started at Mesa this year and so far I love the school. I really like both of their teachers and I think that my kids will do really well here. The only thing about the school that I don't really like is how pick up is behind the school and theres no way to drive behind there I have a baby and its not fun to get him in and out just to walk behind the school.

  • I'm the sister of 1st Grader. And just because she knew a little bit of Spanish, they are requiring her to see a teacher so she can learn English. My sister's first language is English, we talk in Spanish sometimes. Just because she's Hispanic means she has to get additional attention? I don't agree with that, and I feel that it's completely racial. It is brought to my attention that more than half of your school is white, I'm also white myself. But considering that she knows fluent Spanish doesn't necessarily mean that she needs help in any area. I'm perfectly capable of working with her, and that's working extremely well.

    Sorry if this is rude, I'm just defending my little sister.
