I am a former student of Mesa Jr. High. so naturally when my child reached the age of jr. high I wanted her to go to the jr. high I went to unfortunately I found that academics have gone down hill for Mesa Jr. My child attended 7th grade and I couldn't wait for the year to end so I could enroll her in a new school. I was so disappointed in my former pride and joy of being a Mesa Jr. former student. I always bragged about going there. It's not the same and I would never enroll another one of my kids there. My child now goes to Heritage Academy and is excelling!! I should have gone with my instincts to begin with but I went with my heart and loyality and was deeply disappointed. I hope Mesa Jr. does some improving. Books and classrooms are outdated...

As a current student at Mesa Junior High, I feel I am recieving a wonderful learning experiance. The councilers help prepare students for college with the assistence of a program called Quia. They also take in consideration parents suggestions as well as modificatons to students scheduals. In my opinion, the teachers are excellent at what they do. They interatct with students and help them reach their goals. The principal at Mesa Jr. is outstanding. She cares for the students, promotes an learning atmosphere, and tries to improve the school as best she can. MJH has its negatives but no school is prefect. I reccommend this school to anyone and I am proud to say I am a Mesa Junior High EAGLE!

Our 5 kids range in age 23-14. The school was a much better school in 1998 than it is now. Very few good teachers other who need a new profession. The principal is trying too hard to cater to the hispanic community(I'm hispanic) & the school uniforms are ridiculous, kids find their way around the policy, especially when you have some kids who are allowed to get away from the guidelines and others who are constantly harrassed about their uniform. My kids get good grades only because I stay on them. No contact between teacher and parent unless I initiate it and even then they make me feel like I'm disturbing them. The office staff hasn't a clue, I hate calling there w/a question & school security!? The reason we sent our kids there was for the diversity but these last three years the school has gone WAY down hill.

I think the teachers should be more patient with the student and explain the process of their class work,

I have had children go through Mesa Junior for the past 12 years and since the new principle has taken over I feel the school has gone down hill. The staff isn't as happy and nobody really goes over and beyond there job. It seems the principle is turning the teachers and staff away. Since the change I have pulled my child from the school and my younger children will not be returning.

I have had children at Mesa Junior for the last 8 years. Mesa Junior has teachers that care about the students and even though it has a bad reputation, there nothing there that is not at the other schools. Anyone who takes a child from this school, just because of a reputation, should realize that being where it is, rather then what it is, is what people see the most. It has very caring teachers, and my children have thrived there, I will miss not having a student there next year.

Most of the teachers really want the students to succeed.

Have not been satisfied with just about anything. No consistencies, no followup with any issues, even after requested. Principal weak in all skills. No communication with parents from any teachers have been our experiences this year, the only year our daughter has went to Mesa Junior High. We are looking for a new school currently and will not be sending her back there. Oh, her grades dropped dramatically and we were left with the inititative to connect with school. Still no followups.
