The Mount Vernon School district has great teachers who go out of their way to assist students in their endeavors.
Mount Vernon City School District heads for a change in the right direction as they show they are becoming more 'fit' with modern times.
good school, teachers are supportive and approachable. Staff is helpful. Environment is safe. Very few safety issues. Sports are well organized. Small town feel but class size is around 300.
I went to high school at mount vernon high school. it is a decent high school. i finished with a high school equivalence diploma ar rhe knox county career center when i was 17 years old in tenth grade. I am no in college at ashford university working toward my B.A. in Sociology as my major.
I enjoy the environment and the students. The teachers are very supportive and the staff members are very helpful. Sports are well supported, and educatational opportunities are available for college prep classes and pathways. Parents are welcome to be involved and the student population is encouraged to be active in sports and extra curriculars. Foreign languages are offered, and school trips are available annually. The campus and atmosphere feel safe and clean. Although I no longer take classes on main campus, I am still actively involved athletically and feel as though all of my coaches have done everything in their power to support me .
Most teachers are very supportive and want to see everybody succeed. There are a lot of challenging classes that give students opportunities to learn subjects more in depth. One bad thing is that sometimes it seems like the school wants to put more money and resources into sports than academics.
My experience has been good with academics, but I also have played volleyball for the 4 years and my coach has developed me as a player, but also as a student and overall confident young woman.
Mount Vernon provides a lot of opportunity that nearby school districts don’t, but that being said they should be more open to taking new students for open enrollment and those who want to take certain classes.
it an amazing place if you really want to get to know lots of different people , the sports is so fun and everyone really knows how to get in the spirit
When I attended the school really cared about football and basket ball players but didn't put the same kind of attention into the music departments. The music wing was out of date and unheated. Equipment was outdated or unavailable. The teachers clearly favored the athletics students and students with influential parents over the others.
It's overall a good school with many advanced academic options for students. The teachers tend to be good, with a few exceptions, and the student body has tremendous school spirit.
The teachers and faculty were excellent. I learned a lot and in troubling times the faculty was able to provide accommodations accordingly. If I had to go back and do it again, I would be happy to do so.
Too much focus on sports, not enough focus on academics. There are a couple of really good teachers.
Mount Vernon City School District is a wonderful district filled with so many opportunities. The staff always made sure everyone was equipped with the knowledge that they needed to help them progress. The teachers are exceptional, especially when it came to school work. They were always available and willing to lend a helping hand. The community that surrounds the school district is unbelievably supportive and very involved.
I have always had a good experience with my schools. My teachers have always been there for me and have always done everything in their power to help me succeed. The opportunities here are few, but they are not half bad. The local colleges do a good job of being available for everyone to use no matter what the family income is. I think that this town is growing and so will the school district. Generations below me will be blessed with what is to come. I am not saying that my experience was horrible because quite frankly I wouldn't change a thing.
Mount Vernon High School is one of the older schools in the district in definite need of repair or remodel given the thousands of rowdy high schools that parse through its halls over the years. They do their best to provide for the kids, but some of their decisions fall flat and aren't welcomed by the students. For instance, the decision to provide Chromebooks and subsequent restrictions including a recent decision for the device to fully log out if closed.
My experience at the Mount Vernon High school was a very eventful one where i have met most of my friends at, the school is a welcoming place for all.
