The Mesquite ISD is one of the most respected districts in the state. I know some from around the state and even in the Metro area dont know much about them, or even where it is. Here are some facts.
Mesquite Won the 5A Div. I state football championship in 2001
Around that time Mesquite Horn was opened to serve the students and became a 4A school.
That had an impact on Athletics throughout the district.
They now have five High Schools; 3 in 5A, and two in 4A
The total in the high schools at the last reporting period was 10,310.5, or 2070 average per school in the top four grades.
They have some of the best facilities in the state. The stadiums include an updated, state of the art Hanby, and one of the best in the state, 20,000 seat Memorial.
They have one of the only district owned, public radio stations, KEOM, FM, 88.5. that is mostly run by students, and covers most of the Metroplex.
The academics are VERY GOOD.
The Skeeters were put in the tough 12 5A district and have struggled. They seem to get better late in the season. They always have very good athletes.
