I love the small-town feel of Mountainburg schools. Each student has a personal relationship with teachers and it is probable that that helps students to develop better learning skills. Mountainburg High School has endured a lot of changes within the past few years and that has helped students learn to deal with change and have an open mind towards it. Our school has pride and we are Dragon Strong!

Mountainburg School District is the backbone of my education and character. The student body and community is unified; it's as if everyone is family, always there for one another. My teachers are very supportive of the students and want to see them excel in all areas of the academic careers. However, not only do my teachers care about my academics, but they care about my wellness as a human also. Mountainburg's teachers have a passion to teach each student not only how to find tangents and how to solve electron configurations, but they also teach us valuable life lessons like how important every choice we make is, how important showing people respect is, how to make a positive impact on our futures, and how to enter the world as mature young adults. Without the influence of my teachers and the school's staff, I could not have become the person I am today. I never imagine going anywhere else because my heart belongs in Mountainburg, and I wouldn't change a thing about my school.
I graduated from Mountainburg High School in May of 2016. It's a small school, with lots of potential. It has amazing staff and administration, its students are where the work is needed. The students lack diversity (race, originality, and etc.). Attitude arrangements are a future must.
