Great school! I loved that the principal went out of her way to learn the students names. My son did really well here and I felt like the teachers were truly invested in the students and their success. I really enjoyed the family trivia nights. I'd highly recommend this school and the district.

I went to Mead Jr High School from August of 2010 to June of 2012. My best year at Mead was my eighth grade year. The teachers were very friendly to me.
