Mount Vernon City School District Reviews
Honestly I entered Mount Vernon High school expecting it to be much worse than it was. People painted a picture of a dangerous place in my head and I believed it to be so until I arrived. Most of the teachers and administrators are focused and set on helping student not only graduate, but get accepted and attend college. Additionally the Mount Vernon basketball program changed my life, being around that amazing coaching staff let but Coach Bob Cimmino, gave me a new focus and drive. The connections I made through sports also helped me get accepted into my top choice,Morehouse College. Overall like any school it has its bumps and bruises but I am forever grateful for the experiences I've had here and If I had the chance to go back and change something, I'd do it all the same way.
I love my school because its easy to get around, and you cant really get lost. My school also has AMAZING drama and band departments. Really good sports teams.school to me is fun nd enjoyable really if you have all your friend with you and you are learning school can be very fun Same for me, but sometimes I go threw some heart aches but in the end I end up stronger and better, happier with more experience! So I sort of like school
I have gone to three different schools in this district as I've grown up and none of them seemed to be great. My elementary school was fine until it became a k-8. After this decision, I continued to go there for my middle school years. THe was 3 different grades that were forced to stay on one crowded floor. High school was better but there were no many opportunities because it was still very new.
