Some things that I loved about attending Blount High School was the atmosphere. Blount High school is a very family oriented and traditional school, with loads of students with greatness who are attending and that are now proud graduates! I loved how not only could we get help with our work and be taught to better ourselves through education, our instructors also taught us lifelong lessons and told us awesome things that we still hold on to and use today. GO LEOPARDS! ONCE A LEOPARD ALWAYS A LEOPARD!!

At Blount high school our teachers and administrators are great! They enforce rules when they are broken, and build up wonderful relationships with us as students. This is good because it alows the students to relate with the teacher easier. Which helps the students learn8 g experience a lot less stressful.
Mattie T. Blount High School is the best high school you could attend in Mobile County Public School System. first, We are very Diverse no. Matter of your race, religion, or social class. Here we are all alike standing proud in our purple and white. Second, we have the best Clubs & Activities. They or not only fun but they are a great way to help give back to your community, while striving to be the best you could be. My third reason for why I love my school as much as I could is,because while other schools main goal is to graduate every senior Blount's Teacher and Facility main goal is to graduate every senior college and career ready.
