Parent of student at MESA charter high school,
In my opinion there isn't a student that doesn't belong at MESA. MESA has offered a diversity among the students so any student is welcomed. A lot of people might say "if you're going to be "lazy" then why come to school" or "if you don't act a certain way then why are you here" but at MESA, they work hard to give each student the attention they deserve. If a student is having trouble keeping up in class they have other classes that might be a lot easier and understandable to that particular student but if you're an outstanding student that has performed amazingly in a particular class they give you a higher rank like "honors" so you could challenge yourself and be a better you.
