I love Mount Pleasant Area High School. It is like a second home to me. I am so glad I get to attend here and spend part of my life journey here. The students, teachers, faculty, and administrators are so caring and joyful to be around. Our teachers and principals would drop anything to help any student whether they were struggling in or out of the classroom. I feel very safe and comfortable at Mount Pleasant. It is definitely one of the best schools in the area and I am happy to be a student here!

I love the variety of choices that students have for school lunches, I love the teaching styles of some of the teachers there, the administration is great, the sports facilities are very nice, and it is a very good school culture, as a student I love going to school everyday. The few things I do not like about Mount Pleasant High School, is the very few classes available. Mount Pleasant does not have as many classes to choose from compared to other schools, and I believe that limits students on their learning. Some of the teachers do not teach well but there are some teachers that are excellent are prepare their students for the future. The academics at this school do not give students the best college readiness, teachers give students too many breaks, they grade every little thing, I believe the best way for students to be college ready is for teachers to only grade exams. All in all, I think Mount Pleasant is a great school.
I enjoyed that there wasn’t a large amount of students; my graduating class was 160. This made us easier for one-on-one time with the teachers. I enjoyed the lunch options and felt that I was receiving a nutritious meal each and every day. I would like to see some change, though. What I think needs to change is how easy it is for students to get what they do not actually deserve. Students that cheat and share answers via social media are the ones that are in the top 10%. They are the “smartest” according to their test grades, but if they were asked the same question the next day, they would be clueless.
