My experience at Mount Pleasant high school has been great so far. When I moved here I made friends easily, my grades went up, and I felt I was in a safer environment. I was making honor roll every marking period which really helped me when I would apply to colleges. The friends I had made and the teachers that always cheered me on also made me a over-all happier person. The only thing I would change about the school would be that they would financially support the arts programs more. We need newer art materials in order to effectively create our pieces. Thankfully the art teachers put in a lot of time, money, and effort to make the experience better for us students. Over-all though, I enjoy Mount Pleasant and am proud to be a green knight!

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!
It is a decent school, it has the IB Programme, which is a good thing if you are interested in that, but if you aren't in IB, you don't get nearly as many things as IB students do. I'm an IB student, so I have a completely different perspective from someone who wasn't in the program, partially because they practically segregate the school between IB and non-IB. Because of this, I have spent the past 4 years surrounded by the same 50-ish people, which is crazy when you consider that the senior class currently at Mount is around 200. On top of that, it seems as though the school district relies on IB kids to bring up test scores on standardized tests, which is ridiculous to me, at least.
