Principal’s Update

May 28th, 2024.

Dear Mead High School Community,

I want to start by thanking everyone who contributed to this amazing school year. We are so lucky at Mead HS to live, work, learn, and grow in such an amazing community. There is so much to celebrate from this past school year and a large part of that success is the support from our community. A great example was our graduation ceremony on Saturday where we had 4,000 people show up to cheer on the Class of 2024. It was a beautiful day and a great way to send off our graduates.

As we reflect on what the Class of 2024 has accomplished, here are a few of the many highlights. This year we had 218 graduates who combined for a 97.3% graduation rate which is one of the top in the state for a school our size. They earned over $2.3 million in scholarships for postsecondary learning. 72% of our students will attend a 4-year university, 2-year college or trade school and 7 students will be serving in the military. We had 31 honor grads who earned a 4.0 GPA and 18 who earned the AP Scholar award. The Class of 2024 contained 40 National Honor Society members, 13 were in the National Technical Honor Society, and 31 earned the Seal of Biliteracy. We had four individual state champions this year, a team championship in Boys Wrestling, and over 50 of our performers made all state, honor or combined league for performing arts. It was an amazing year thanks to the leadership of this class of students.

Congrats on a successful 2023-2024 school year and we are looking forward to the 2024 – 2025 school year that starts on Aug. 13th. Until then, I hope everyone in Maverick Country has a safe and fun summer break.
