  • I transferred into the MCISD in my sophmore year, and therefore into Mission High School. The teachers were quite nice, for the most part, and helpful. It's a good school, great athletics and scholastics, though the drama department was lacking, at least when I attended (1998-2001).

  • In the 1950's we learned so little that the rest of our lives were always handicapped.
