Mount Vernon Community School District Reviews

9 reviews

To start, a large majority of the teachers in school genuinely care about their student, but there are also some whose distaste and prejudice is beyond obvious. Fortunately, those teachers are mainly in extracurricular classes. In many of the classes, students aren't required to pay attention to succeed. In the science classes, students are able to print the notes off online. They commonly do so before hand, and proceed to talk (loudly) while the rest of the class is trying to take notes on the teachers presentation. The social environment is largely negative. Students are racist, homophobic, and sexist. You can hear such remarks openly in the hallways, and one of the first gay students to come out was assaulted over twitter by several individuals. It isn't a place where someone can be themselves, unless they want to face the judgment of the rest of the school.

Elementary School special education for behavior challenges/disabilities​ needs​ major improvement. Principal is inflexible, unethical and rude. ALL teachers in the general education rooms are fantastic and quality of education is great.
Middle school special education for behavior challenges​/disabilities is much better. Middle and High School education is impressively above average in academics and extracurricular activities.
I love that students have the option of taking very rigorous corse loads, if they so choose. Despite some issues with a few classes, I’ve enjoyed my learning experience the vast majority of the time.
