MPHS is a great campus. Its has many opportunities for young students who are interested in many things. There is so much to be involved in. Students can sign up for any class the would like to be in, and even challenge themselves by taking it into the Pre-AP and AP classes. Teachers are also very involved in the campus life. Its is a 10/10 recommend!
my experience with mount pleasant high as a student was not quiet what I thought it would be. The teachers act like children along with the kids, the ceiling is falling apart yet alone some of the bathrooms on the first floor are constantly out of order or they'll place a trash can on top of the toilet. To many students fight and the AP have favorites and let's these favorites break the school dress code. Poor lunch, some of the food doesn't look cooked all the way. I really haven't enjoyed my school year at mount pleasant because they are unorganized, few teachers are VERY rude and sarcastic, which doesn't help me as a student here at all. All in all, I'm ready to graduate and leave mount pleasant high school.
