I loved how involved the teachers were with the students... they made sure the students understood the lessons and they made sure everyone was included. The school board is very involved with sports and extra curricular activities and they show up to many different things that the school hosts. The principal shows interest in our activities and encourages us to reach our full potentials. The students are friendly and enjoy talking to other students even if they don’t really know them and that is why I love Mount Airy High School.

Mount Airy High School is a family type environment where teachers and staff members care about the success and well being of all of its students. I have built relationships here with not only my classmates, but faculty and coaches as well that will last a lifetime.
