Success depends on personal drive and good parenting. I was a student at Mansfield High School and I graduated with many students who did not care to better themselves and always blamed their failures on the administration of the High School. This simply is not the case at Mansfield High School. The teachers facilitate an easy transition for students to go to college, the simple fact is that most students don't take advantage of this opportunity. Maybe it was how they were raised? You do not have to be an excellent student and be gifted with wealthy parents to succeed in life. The drive and having parents who actually take part in their child's education is all that is needed for a student to excel in Mansfield High School's excellent programs.

I hate going to school here. Sometimes I wonder if the teachers even like kids. They frequently swear at us and the administration doesn't have a clue what they're doing. The internet filter doesn't know the difference from adult content to cheese, and the teachers get mad at you if you stay 2 minutes after the final bell. Many of the students say nasty things and are racist towards others.

The hallways are classrooms are kept clean and there is always suppervision from the teachers. It is a very safe school with lots of sports programs. It does not however, have any after school clubs such as art or drama.

I attend MHS right now and I personally hate it. The town itself isn't the best. There's no challenge academically and we aren't very prepared for college. If I were given the chance, I'd would move to attend a better school.

I was a student at this school from my 7th grade years all-the-way until Graduation day. I can honestly say that now that I have been introduced into the work-force, and the word, that I am truly greatfull to all the students and staff that I have met and had the pleasure of learning from at Mansfield! The learning environment was one of the very best that I've ever been introduced to, not to mention the Teachers passion for teaching! Which is why I can gladly say that I am so successful today! Thank you Mansfield!

I was truly disappointed by the level of educational support my youngest child received. Having moved here over ten years ago for the opportunity of having my children attend a great small school, I have watched a steady decline in the school administration and attention to the individual needs of the students. An average student is lost in this system. No guidance on future education opportunities, no encouragement for excellence, and no appreciation for achievements. While that might be expected in a school of 3 or 4 times the size of this school, but at a school that only graduates 60-70 students per year it is quite disturbing.

There is no consistency in the leadership within the Mansfield High School and the transition from elementary to middle school is terrible and not acceptable. We need someone to assume the leadership that has people skills and can discipline students and still gain their respect. We had that with Bill David.

I being a parent and having a kid who is a student at mhs can say that i am pleased on that count but however, i would be more happier if a few of the faculty staff had a little more of a greeting when a parent or even a student is within the building. Thank you.

The school would be better if it had better administration.

As with all industries in this country there are good and bad aspects - some of the good are the GENERAL high quality of treachers - the negative apect on that issue is that there are a couple of teachers (who may have the credentials to teach) who do not have the ability to teach- why grant them tenure when complaints have been numerous? A plus note students do have access to the University as a resource. The sports programs are excellent especially since the combining of the 3 district school allows students more options. There does seem to be a discrepancy between the 3 schools in the district and how much money is spent on each - why is that when all 3 districts pay the same school taxes.
