I like that Mount Pleasant Independent School District offers so many classes and opportunities that other schools don't. They have a great staff, administration, and students in Mount Pleasant. Everyone at MPISD is so kind and they never leave anyone out. I moved to Mount Pleasant just this year and i was nervous that I wouldn't have a good experience because I was new and I'm pretty introverted, but I love it there so far. Everyone there just welcomed me with open arms and I couldn't think of a better school to go to.

I absolutely loved Mt. Pleasant and would definitely recommend that school to anyone in the area. I went to Mt Pleasant all 13 years of school and would trade it for nothing. The teachers thoroughly prepared me for my freshman year in college. After this first year of college, I came out with a 4.0, and I cant thank Mt. Pleasant enough for preparing me for it. I attended EC Brice Elementary, then moved on to PE Wallace Middle School, Mt Pleasant Jr High, and MPHS. Each school prepared me for the next. My parents both happen to be teachers of Mt Pleasant, and are very devoted to their schools and their students. Teachers are very supportive of their students and always push them to be their bests in everything that they do.
Mount Pleasant school district is very fortunate to have several classes students can take to become prepared for a future outside of school. There are also many duel credit classes offered due to a partnership with the local community college. There needs to be some improvements made to the facility and extensive reviews on teachers in the classroom to see how they interact with the students and to see if they are suited for the job.
