  • I am a new resident to the mesquite area and I find the area to be very well guarded by the community. It is a very busy town that has a lot of opportunity. However, I am quite disappointed that out of all the elementary schools on the mesquite board none were graded. They all had N/A's except for Porter and that school received a c-. My daughter will be attending this school because I do not have time to visit each elementary school. After all I really don't have much to go on. But I will say this; I did not attend the best schools in my day and I feel that all should test the waters for themselves, but rest assured if this schools result actually turns out to be a c- she will be transferred.
