High expectations result in high student achievement

Student of the Month portraits hang on walls of honor in the Board Room and in the lobby of the Administrative Services Center. They remind everyone who stops by that Students of the Month are shining examples of how high expectations are paying off for the children of Mesa Public Schools.
