I went here for my freshman year and I hated it. The people here are sooo mean, snobby and rude, also the AP's seem to be too strict on dress code and ID's and not focusing on the people learning. I would not recommand you going to this school.
The school is great but there's lots of pot. They get caught right away though.
My sons were in this school years ago but neither graduated from there. The teachers did not seem to care neither did the administration.
Teachers and Extracurricular opportunities are great. The weakest areas are the lack of up-to-date technology--makes it hard for the teachers to do their job--and the campus and district administration. It is a wonder that the school is so successful. Give the teachers and students credit!
Mansfield High School is a great school, but the new leadership is lacking communication skills with parents. They are focusing too much on dress code and not enough on academics. The teachers really care about the students. If you are coming from Arlington, beware that your child may be behind. Especially in math. Attendance and punctuality are very with the principles at MHS. Parents do need to keep an eye on their children's grades. Teachers take too long to input grades. I am not too crazy about there new Infinite Campus Software.
The teachers here care about our kids, and what is going on in their lives.
The teacher and students in this school succeed despite the constant interuptions from administration. How many 'tests' do these students really have to take? Benchmarks for what? From what I have been told no one really does much with the benchmark scores anyway. My stars are for the teachers who are really doing the work and the students who benefit from these people. The administration--both at the school and espcially at the administration building--are the ones who need to be ranked low. If they let the teachers do the job they are trained to do, all will be fine.
I feel this school is overrated. For the average student, MHS/MISD will suit the student's academic needs. If your student is special needs ( ie. requires Special Ed, GT, or Advanced) the school falls short. The entire district is experiencing growth problems which is having a negative impact on the quality of teaching, programs, quality of college prep counseling offered to students, and the students. The school has a lot to offer as far as extracurricular activities and if your child is confident and can get involved your child will do well. In my opinion, the 'myth' the Mansfield High is the best high school in the district is all superficial if you want a notch college bound education for your child look elsewhere outside of the Mansfield/Arlington ISD or find another education option. The test scores state a lot as well when you compare to other schools.
Mansfield High School has a great academic program. They are preparing my daughter for college. It's nice to know someone truly cares. I would recommend this school to anyone.
This school is wonderful, it has helped bring my shy daughter to life. They have a wonderful band program and directors who really care. Thank you, Thank you!
The Junior ROTC classes are excellent and have greatly helped my child. The JROTC teachers try to make a difference in each kid, and my child's behavior has improved 300 percent since joining.
My daughter has attended MHS for 2 years and she loves it. Since moving here her Math grades and ease of learning has improved.
Level of academic is average for the area. Extra curriculars are very good, specifically soccer and baseball. Parents are active.
Typical suburban school without the snotty rich kid syndrome. Something for everyone,if you are willing to work. Academically motivated students will find a niche here, as will sports minded kids.
I would like to say that Mansfield High School is one of the best schools to study at. The academic programs are great, school offers a variety of courses for students of all abilities. There are many facilities for sports and extracurricular activities. I really enjoyed the school year that I studied there!
Mansfield is a great schhol, with lots of variety in academic classes as well as electives.
Overall I feel that the school has done a tremendous job with its ability to take on such a large demand of students in such a short amout od time but with that being said the school teaches like everyone knows what is being said and done. In school your taught to be diffrent and think outside the box, well once you walk through those doors it doesnt matter because youre eitheir get whats being taught or you fail because theirs not enough time to understand all the criteria that is being taught.
This school has made a difference in my daughters life. As big as the school is I was afraid she would not be recognized or felt like a number. But all she tells me, I am very pleased with this school. Thank you!
