Mount Vernon City School District Reviews

Our school district faces a lot of problems currently. The biggest thing is that we do not have enough teachers that care. I have seen so many teachers with my own eyes just give up on their students. I've heard "this wasn't what I was supposed to do with my life" more times than I can count. Because of so many staff members giving up, it causes the students to give up as well. There are so many students that have amazing potential but they don't apply themselves because they don't see the point. So many of our students are depressed and hate even stepping foot into our schools. That is not okay and there should be more done to protect and preserve our student's minds. I have been taught from the beginning that unless I am in a sport, no one will care about me. Education is less valued than athletics which really puts the wrong message out there to our students. There's some people that care, but not enough and that really needs to change.

Mount Vernon High School has something to offer for everyone from FFA to National Honors Society to Robotics. My only complaint with the school is the building itself. It was built in 1969 and is now outdated and beginning to become rundown. From the outside, it looks like a prison because of the lack of windows. On the inside, I would estimate that 50% of the classrooms do not have a single window. Also, the ceiling leaks in several places when it rains and the large majority of the bathroom doors do not shut and lock properly. That being said, I would gladly send my future children to Mount Vernon High School. The teachers, students, and office staff all make you feel at home and the HIVE, won the Golden Megaphone award for best student section in Ohio. Overall, I am very happy with my high school experience
The teachers in this district are wonderful and are always eager to help students. They are committed to teaching and do a great job of it. This goes for the entire staff, from the janitors to the guidance counselors. Ours is a small town, so our schools have that close-knit community feel; everyone is very friendly. I would like to see communication improved between the schools and the students, but overall I believe it is decent and I know that the administration is constantly striving to ameliorate this area. In total, the Mount Vernon City School District is a pleasant place of learning that gets better every day.
