Mt. Vernon High School Reviews
Through my four years at Mt. Vernon I have made many amazing friends, including my teachers. My school creates a safe and comfortable environment. There a numerous clubs, sports, and organizations that you can be involved in. While in high school, I have participated in softball, mentoring, ASL club, best buddies, marauder mob, and more!
I like how they are constantly expanding and creating more space for students, I can also tell that the principal really cares for the students! I wish that there were a more diverse pool of classes to choose from, I also think that there should be more education on life after high school and how to prepare for it.
Over all the Academics are good. Most of the teachers put forth effort and really care. They have a variety of clubs and sports to choose from. While it has all of that it's not very diverse. The majority of students are white. While others complain about racism it doesn't happen. Bullying is a huge issue. People will harass you for anything and everything. It doesn't matter race, name, sexual preference, sexual identity, religion, even down to how you look. Everyone that thinks they're "cool" acts like a child and is bratty. If your looking for a good academics this is a good place, but if your looking for a good social life this school isn't the place.
