I was a student at Mesquite elementary and I am so satisfied. I went there from pre-school to 4th grade then I moved up to prescott. I am now in eighth grade. this school was so amazing. all the teachers were so nice and helped every individual student very well and focused their time on all of them. I created a long lasting relationship that still lasts today with all of my teachers. they are all very nice and silly and here's is very good parent involvement. the classes are challenging but not too hard. it's the perfect school and I wish I could go to a high school as great as it. the campus is so clean and the students are very nice and the punishments for bad behavior are great. it's just an amazing school with an amazing campus and opportunities all around. I would love to send my children there some day.

Over-all, I'm very pleased with my child's progress with this school. If I were to offer one suggestion, however, it would be that I'd like to see the teacher to parent communication line a little more, well, 'more'... There are times when I feel a bit out of the loop of what's going on with my child's classes. At my child's previous school, updates on what was going on came home every Monday stating what was on the agenda for the week. And then, every Friday another update came home with a brief overview on how my child did during the week. I really liked that, during the weekend we could review anything that my child may have had trouble with, and start reading about some of the upcoming studies to get a jump-start.

I have three children that all attend Mesquite. We have been at this school for five years and we love it! Mesquite is an excelling school and has just received the 2nd A+ rating. Mesquite is the only school to have received it twice... let alone two years in a row!! I would give Mesquite 10 stars if I could!

My daughter has attended Mesquite under the 'open enrollment' program for 3 years now. My daughter has some learning challenges and all her teachers have worked with me to make my daughter's learning experience a positive one. I have had very open communication with all 3 of my child's teachers. She currently has Mrs. Hollywood and I could not be more please with her progress! Although our school does several fund raisers a year they all benefit the children and the school. The PTSA at our school is always willing to explain the reason for the fund raiser to anyone who asks. The field trips are not part of the PTSA, but come from the general fund and that has been cut drastically. This is true for all public schools in AZ right now.

My child is in the 1st grade. She has had a hard time adjusting to the amount of work and testing this school does. The teachers don't make the parents feel apart of the school. Half way through the year and have not had one program put on by the kids or field trip. But, every week is a new fund raising program going on.

I am so happy with my child at Mesquite! My oldest just finished 3rd grade. Ms. Irby is the best teacher I have seen! She builds their self esteem while teaching in a caring productive environment. My daughter cried when the year was over and wanted to stay back to be in her class again. My youngest starts kindergarten there this next year, and I was very impressed with the kindergarten round-up. She was so scared but they made her comfortable and she is actually looking forward to starting school. I would recommend Mesquite to anyone! They run a great school!

Coming from an excelling district and school in Ohio, this district pales in comparison, but I believe it's the best offered in this area. My son strived to be 'average' in OH, but here is all A's and one B. He had required an IEP before, but here, was transitioned out because it was not needed, which I believe is related to the easier curriculum-the challenge is missing. I'm pleased my son is doing well and no longer requires add'l help, but I wonder at what cost. Will he be prepared for the next school? We are military and move frequently, so I am very aware of the potential for difficulties later on. It's not as much about this district or school, but the school system in general in AZ. Overall, the teachers are great and very caring. They encourage parental involvement and are prompt to return messages and address concerns.

My kindergardner and third grader go to this school and I have absolutely loved it. There is a lot of homework given. There is a lot of parent involvement. I am very pleased with the results my children get from this school. I just wish they had uniforms next.
