School Reviews

  • Recommended September 26, 2007 - I've been to many different schools, and the one I've really ever liked, is Mabank High School. It's a pretty good school. MOST, of the Teachers really seem to care. Some don't, but they're usually the older ones. The principle, Mr. Wallis, is nice. He seems to care about the students. - Posted by Student/Alumni
