    Mesilla was a fun and very intelligent i enjoyed being there! I really liked the teachers they were understanding and friendly people. The program the seven habits helped us understand how to be a leader. When i visited Mesilla the students were very disrespectful and mean to others but when it came to learning they were always focused and ready to learn something new!
