    This year has proven to be very disheartening. Last year I was assured that my child's needs would be met. This year the care and concern were nonexistent!!!! It becomes apparent that this is accomplished by thinning the herd and students who move at a slower pace are advised to seek their educational needs elsewhere. Very disappointed!!

    I was a student here since kindergarden. All teachers are so nice and helpful and help me with my speacial needs. My mum recently took me out and put me into Thomson cause it was in Jeffco but she realized it was a mistake cause my grades have dropped tremendously in only 2 months!!

    The staff have been very specail to my grandson he has many specail needs(I call them unique) including Autism. He started at K he is now in third grade! Reading is at third grade now math is a little harder for him but he is doing good. He has just advanced so much because of the teachers office staff bus drivers well ALL the staff! Jordan and our family hold them in high regard. Jordan loves all of them ALL staff. The kids treat him very well also. Grandma Margaret

    My daughter really likes this school. I like how the teachers care and really help the students. My daughter has been to other schools that don't help the students that much. The school does need alot of work done to it. My daughter said that colors would be nice instead of just white. My one complaint is that they don't get that much time to eat lunch. If they can't finish their food then they will get hungry later in the afternoon and not be able to focus as well as if they had a full lunch.

    I think Mesa is a great school my children go there and the teachers really care. The teachers are very involved with their students and the activities are educational

    When I walk through the halls the Teachers have good control of their classrooms but building is very old and decrepit This school has no designated lunch room and students are often seen working in halls due to the fact that class rooms are so small I think Principal and Teaches do a good job with what they have to work with. One thing I think Adams County & Teachers could work on is good nutrition ... No candy or Cookies or artificial sugar in classroom Instead encourage natural food like fruit and veggies for snack time.
