I was pretty happy with the school system here until my kids high school. There's a lot of name calling going on in the halls, the kids are not allowed to go to the restroom unless they are escorted by a principle, if your child has learning disabilities you will have to fight tooth and toenail to get the help they need, teachers rarely respond to e-mails unless you cc the principle in on it, and these are only a few of the issues we have run into. I wish I would have taken the time to have talked to parents that had their kids in this school; I might have made a different decision as to where my kids got their education from. I feel sorry for the educators that are there to really make a difference cause it seems like their hands are tied. The kids WAY out number the adults and believe me-the kids rule the school.
Many of my fellow students complain about our school, but they don't realize how good they have it. Our testing scores are great, normally way above state average, we do have a bullying and all around self-control problem for students, and a few bad teachers, but overall we have very good teachers who teach us everything neccesary to know for the following year, although it seems they're entire goal is set uppon our test scores looking good, but regardless of motives, it works. I have been in MPS on and off throughout all of my school life and for the most part have had a positive experience. We aren't perfect, but we're a lot better than many other places.
I loved going to school here! The teachers are great and get down on your level. They care about their students and are passionate about teaching. I loved the traditions we kept going at Mustang and the atmosphere and learning experience as well.
i know mustang high school is one of the best high schools in oklahoma. the students are your everyday teenagers. they do everything a normal teenager would do at school; go to class, learn, talk to their friends and what ever else they decide to do that day. and for special needs kids, mustang has the highest special needs program in the state. i would know. my little brotheris in it. he is dilexic, and has the mentality of a 4 year old. he has a learning disability, speech impediment and a hearing impediment. and since we moved to mustang, he has improved so much. this is why i recommend mustang school district. their education, sports, and everything else is number 1.
Our children have and still are going thru the entire Mustang School System. I can honestly say along with almost all the other parents that we talk to that the Mustang Grade Schools are about average of most small towns, but when your child gets into middle school it is time to move. If your child makes it to High School, then you best run far and fast. The upper school system only caters to the above average to honor student types, all others are quietly pushed under the rug. If you ask for help you will be amazed at how fast the doors will slam in your face. The students in Mustang are taught to take the national scholastic tests and nothing more. If you have any type of special needs or any form of a learning problem then you do best to go anywhere else.
I find Mustang Mid High is one of the top schools in the greater Oklahoma City area. The staff, teachers, and students are among the best. Having three children graduate from the Mustang Schools, I would recomend our district. The students, their education, is top priority.
I think I had better education in middle school I think the the school is very well kept although I do not like the fact that they dont sell soft drinks at lunch. The girls restrooms need to be kept a little bit cleaner.
