dealt with Mustang systems (15 +) years.1 son honors/1 in special ed. Many teachers are apathetic/ unmotivated no matter gradeschool - high school. high school has been the worst.. they feel put upon to do their job. You will never meet with a Mustang school teacher that will not tell you how overwhelmed/ over worked they are- what a bad day it has been etc. Bullying is not allowed from the kids(on paper) but the teachers participate in this agressive threating behavior frequently - phone email in person. communication does not exist. at any level . each year gets worse.. this year I hope for better with new set of administrators(again) but am not overly hopeful. my kids are flexable for sure as they head to college and graduate school etc.. they were not prepared for college .. just a bit of advice pay all fees with check and keep reciepts they double charge for things. the teachers that cannot keep track of their own paperwork are allowed to get in our kids brains.. its really very sad.. posting grades.. some do and some do not.. so keep track and don't assume your kid is making up how bad it is.. because they are not.. they really might have done the work.. !!!

I have 2 students in Mustang and wasn't impressed in the high school.It is very overcrowded. (Hard to get through hallways) The teachers are ok. Some of the teachers will just give your student work and expect them to know what it is and not help them with it. They give notes on Monday and them give you work for the rest of the week. The teachers don't care. They are just there to do there job and don't really care about their students!
I have 2 children currently at Mustang High School. There are some excellent teachers (esp. within the AP program). The administration however is immature and ineffective. They are also completely disconnected from the majority of the student body. My experience has been that they are NOT in it to do what's best for students but instead care more about outward appearances - accurate or not. Sadly I have seen a decline in the climate and quality of the school since the new administration took over.
I'm impressed so far. They are just doing enough to let them graduate.
I've had two children graduate from MHS. The college prep (AP) program is excellent with gifted instructors that care and kids that want to learn. As expected the results are very good. For the non preparatory classes more like the warehousing associated with inner cities. As a result very high high school dropout rates. I tried to be involved with the teachers but received great deal of resistance from the school In fact had one teacher who would not discuss my child's progress/activity until he signed a release form. I was not impressed with the administration.
