MECA WAS STARTED 6 YEARS AGO AS A HIGH SCHOOL/COLLEGE PREP SCHOOL WHERE OUR STUDENTS NOT ONLY GRADUATE WITH HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA, BUT WITH THEIR ASSOCIATE DEGREEE FROM STC. WE ARE FINALLY IN OUR FINAL CAMPUS THAT IS OVER 70YEARS OLD AND APPEARS TO HAVE BEEN DESIGNED PERFECT FOR OUR STUDENTS. THERE IS NO OVERCROWDING CAUSE THE MOST STUDENTS PER GRADE =100. IT IS A GREAT CAMPUS FOR MY STUDENTS TO ATTEND; MY SON GRADUATED JUNE 1,2013 WITH 41 CREDITS FROM STC AND NOW MY DAUGHTER A FRESHMEN IS FOLLOWING IN HISS FOOTSTEPS. IT'S A GREAT COMMUNITY FOR TEACHERS AND STUDENTS. BUT LIKE A LOT OF OLDER CAMPUSES THE STAFF AND SCHOOL COULD USE $5,000.00 FOR MUCH NEEDED TOOLS FOR THEIR SCIENCE, COMPUTER LABS,ETC. AS PARENTS,STUDENTS , AND FACULTY WE CHALLENGE SCHOOL BOARD FOR MORE ASSISTANCE. THE GRADUATING CLASS OF 2013 EARNED OVER 2,000 COLLEGE CREDITS AND GRADUATED 61 SENIORS ALL WITH HONORS. I CANNOT TELL YOU HOW PROUD AS A PARENT TO SEE YOUR CHILD EMBRACE HIS EDUCATION AND WANT TO GO ON TO BE A BETTER, RESPONSIBLE AND EDUCATED HUMAN BEING. AS A PARENT YOU SEE OTHER SCHOOLS IN DISTRICT GETTING A LOT OF SUPPORT AND FUNDING FROM SCHOOL BOARD, OURS CAN DO BETTER. THE STAFF IS VERY SUPPORTIVE.
