I liked the fact that Mount Pleasant High school is very helpful to start off your career and finding your field of interest. I can become a college student while I am attending high school and be a step ahead to going into my career. Our academics at our school is very important! We always have a career choice to join in our CTE building. Maintaining good grade and a great GPA for college and high school. Having a career academic and preparations class to apply to even more scholarships in is very helpful! Making it easier and affordable to take ACT, SAT, and TSI testing. Also sometimes having free waivers to take the tests! Even having community service hours that are available from the counselor too! With the diversity at our school you can make new friends in any extracurricular activities that you are attending in. Our school serves the most healthiest food and making sure that every kid eats a fruit a day! MPHS is the best school in our district!

Great school! Great Teachers! There are many ways to be involved. If you are not sporty, there is something for you. If you are sporty, there is something for you. If you want to learn, there are classes available with great teachers to encourage you in your studies. My kids have been in MP for 18 years. There has always been people willing to help the kid succeed.
Mount Pleasant is a great school with most of the teachers being willing to help students reach their highest potential at school, but some of the staff are not great at fulfilling their roles. It has several career tracks that can fit everyone's needs such as health science, culinary, and agricultural sciences, etc. It has many extracurriculars and clubs like band, drill team, hosa, fbla, and many more. MP offers many college readiness courses to prepare students for their future.
