Mount Pleasant High School Reviews

What I like about Mount Pleasant High School is that teachers and counselors are always there to help students, they are there to explain the class over and over again if you can't understand it. They also give us advice to be better people and be prepared in the future. What I would like to change from my school is the food because many students do not eat it because of its low quality, another thing that I would like to see change is that all Latin, American, African-American students begin to get along better because we are all the same!

Mount Pleasant was an experience, but I enjoyed going there for 4 years. I made many friends and met many teachers who have made an impact in my life for the better. I loved it there, and it is a school that I recommend to anyone who is thinking about going there. I won't lie when I say something's could be changed. Like the school's lunch, or the way that the build needs to be fixed. But, other than that, there's nothing wrong with the high school. The teachers who teach there go out of their way to help students succeed. If sports are not your thing, then there are many different clubs that someone can join to keep themselves busy. The college adviser helped with any aspect of college, and guidance helped with anything else students needed. And as a 2018 salutatorian class graduate, I believe that Mount Pleasant is a good school to attend. Even if it can seem rough around the edges at first.
My experience at this school has been good thanks to God. God has been there with me through everything that have been through in these four years of high school and I don’t know if it is different for any other student but I can say that I have seen myself grow in the years that I have gone to this school. I cannot say it is perfect because that would not be the truth, but I can say that the school tries to incorporate diversity and encourage their students to go to college and to want a better life for themselves.
