At Mount Pleasant High School, I appreciate the unity of the students, faculty, and staff in the school community. Through events and school-related activities, Mount Pleasant sustains positive interaction with the community outside of the school. The administration, over the course of the past years, has been superb--and continues to strengthen and build on top of the pre-built foundation. I thoroughly enjoyed my four years as a Green Knight!

As a current sophomore attending Mount Pleasant High School, I’ve had a great experience being apart of this community. I am currently aiming to graduate with the IB Diploma certificate in 2021. In this school, I enjoy the teachers, the administration is very helpful to each student, and most of the students are respectful and want to be educated. Changes I would like to see are an improved music program, better funded drama program, updated sports and classroom equipment, and technology to be more incorporated with lessons.
At Mount Pleasant High School, my experience so far has been somewhat but not completely average. I gave a 4 because at least 85 percent of the faculty and staff try his or her best to make do with the little funding available to still offer academically challenging courses ranging from general classes to AP & IB classes that often require examinations that are completed outside of the classrooms. The school offers a great media curriculum which includes the school’s very own radio station (WMPH 91.7FM) and YouTube channel MPH-TV with student run productions.
