Spreading the Word About Our
Great School District, Mesquite

Realtors are often the first source for prospective buyers interested in moving into our district. That’s why I was pleased to speak at this week’s City of Mesquite’s Realtor Expo at the Mesquite Arts Center. In attendance were real estate agents and brokers from across the D/FW Metroplex.

Guests had the chance to learn what’s special about our community and schools from representatives of our city and other community leaders.

Here are some of the highlights from my presentation about Mesquite ISD:

We have a 95 percent high school completion rate, exceeding the state
   and region average.
- Our robust Career & Technical Education Program offers 14 areas of
  study, including marketing, automotive, cosmetology, hospitality and
  healthcare, among others.
- Our Technology Excellence Center will open next fall and offer a
  robotics and math course using solely project-based learning. An
  advanced video production class will also debut.
- Although Mesquite is an older, inner-ring suburb, our district
  enrollment is still growing and expected to continue doing so.
- The state continues to recognize our Board’s and administration’s
  efforts for being good stewards of taxpayer money. Although we have
  less funding than most of the districts in Texas, we stretch every dollar
  and are receiving results that in many cases surpass the state average.
- Some of our greatest strengths lie in the many partnerships and methods
  of outreach we have within our community.

What a great opportunity to showcase all that Mesquite has to offer in education, quality of life and more.
