Mount Pleasant Area High School has been where I have spent that last four year of my academic career as a high school student. I liked the flexibility of the leadership I have witnessed , but I believe it would be in the best interest of the school district to see change come to the priorities of the administration. There should be more diversity brought to the after school activities , and more funding into art programs at the school. As treasurer of the National Art Honors Society, I have taken several art courses , and it is visible in the poor quality of the materials that the arts department needs more funding.
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.
