Mount Vernon Presbyterian School Reviews

When we began our school search, we focused on finding a school that felt like an extended family of our own. One that was inclusive and provided parents an opportunity to get involved. This is exactly what we found at Mount Vernon. From weekly chapel where parents are welcome to join, family share days, to mystery readers, parents are always welcome. Most importantly the teachers do an incredible job communicating with parents and bringing them along on their child’s journey. This includes communication on a daily basis through emails, pictures and suggestions to keep the learning going at home. We also wanted to find a school that focused on developing our child into a well-rounded individual that learned empathy and strive to help others. The classes are constantly working on community projects, learning how they can give back, exploring each student’s differences and celebrating them. We could not be happier with Mount Vernon.

Teacher retention rate in an issue. Every year at least one or more teachers are fired or asked to leave because of under qualification. The cycle continues.These teachers have good resumes but in action, show incompetency. The word "innovation" has become a buzzword because of overuse and the students majority are not involved with innovation programs. The school is marketed as an top 10 "innovation" school with no supporting data.

The administration is severely political with motives. There have been multiple cases of students being caught for drugs and other miscellaneous. Students who were caught were given different treatment based on parents wealth and donations.

One thing I will say is that college counseling has been wonderful and easy on students. This review is not meant to say that the school is completely awful but it does have issues that need to be resolved. I'd say go visit the school for yourself, have a healthy cynicism. Not everything is what it seems.
Everyone at MVPS shares the vision described by the school’s administrators. It’s impressive how everyone has a solid grasp of what it means to be an innovative school of learning and how consistently everyone is on the same page. Everyone is caring and engaging.
The teachers and administrators challenge themselves as well as the students which creates a great learning environment. Our kids learn and enjoy school.
We had some apprehension about our kids adjusting to a new school where they knew few students. It couldn’t have gone better for them. Everyone was exceptionally welcoming. Our kids like their teachers, made new friends, got involved in extracurricular activities (theater and sports) and are successfully challenged academically.
There’s high parent engagement and we have benefited from the “Parent University” events which provide opportunities to connect and learn about topics around our children’s development in and out of school.
